Nozzle without a home

Post  kurtdiver on Sat Oct 02, 2010 9:45 am

After seeing the amazing projects and finding this forum, I have been inspired to build laminar flow nozzles. At this point I don't have a pool or pond, but I am still enamored with the concept. I built a prototype nozzle and for now I am spending my time experimenting with improving the flow and lighting control.

Here is a video of where I am at today. I will post some pictures of the electronics too.




LED heatsinks and Red LED mounted.

Red LED mounted with fiber optic interface.

Green and Blue LED to fiber optic interface. (Red removed because it broke)

Control electronics for two LEDs.

Power supplies.

Right now the colors are turned on and off in the video with momentary push button switches. Today I am working on electronic control to duty cycle the on/off state of each LED automatically to transition through different color combinations.

I like it! Like yourself, I don't have a pool or a pond for what eventually will be my fountain. I'm planning on installing it in a dry rock creek bed that I will make. I will have it jump up out of the rocks...someday.

I`m impressed over your LED fiber optic light system Very Happy
The idea on how to mount your fiber seems to work out great.
Maybe I try out something familiar with my optic.
