Thanks to Mark for posting about this new video of a new version of Inductance Energy Corporation’s Earth Engine, which is being called Crystal.
Here is the description from the YouTube video:
Crystal is made of clear Lexan and powered entirely by magnetic propulsion. Only the proprietary ‘magnetic fuel’ is covered. There are no wall plugs or electrical connections, except for a small battery to provide starting load. The plan is for Crystal to soon be running 24/7 for months on end—all of it streamed live.
There is some discussion in the video, not always easy to make out, but at one point, IEC’s CEO, William Hinz states: “This is the first truly transparent motor requiring no external energy.”
From this video it looks like they are still getting this motor ready. Dennis Danzik shows some meters in the video and says that the meter showing output ‘is coming’.
My guess is they chose to go for a transparency is to show that there are no hidden batteries inside.
UPDATE — As Zephir pointed out below, The Earth Engine’s inventor, Dennis Danzik made a comment on this video providing some explanation of what is shown.
OK, so normally I would not comment on these Boards but I think it will help all that view this video to point out several facts about the “Crystal” project. Crystal was designed and constructed for one purpose; to prove that a paired static magnetic field induces spin in a flywheel, regardless of mass. The Engines flywheel is 107 cm in diameter and just over 280 kg (600+ pounds). In the video you see it spinning at idle, not at running speed. It is designed only to operate at 60 to 100 RPM due to the fact that the strength of materials limits its speed. IEC commercial Engine models operate at 100 to 500 RPM and have flywheel mass > 1800 kg. The Engine runs purely from a paired set of permanent magnets. The very small timing device is 24V and controls only the attenuation of the magnetic field. The small battery that you see in the also transparent control panel is 24V and is used to pace the Engine (a governor). There are no internal batteries, wires, motors or drives. The Crystal Engine was built so that it can be shown in constant running tests, live, within the next several weeks. The battery is used for starting and to show a closed loop system. As shown, by the AccuEnergy Meter, the “IN” is less than 11 watts at >1 Sec, per rotation at idle. The “OUT” will be displayed during the running show in mid May. Do not get hung up on batteries. All engines require a small starting battery, regardless of gasoline, diesel or turbine design, battery power, or some other form of capacitance is necessary. As of our current time in history, no engine will operate without initial power to start, and deliver initial power to its operating system. That said, Crystal is closed loop. Its main source of energy, once started, is a 500W three phase alternator, rectified to DC with a 30 to 50V charging circuit. If you chose to tune in, you will have the ability to see all sides of Crystal including the output alternator. i look forward to seeing some positive comments, and possibly some suggestions as to what you would like to view in our upcoming broadcast.
I’m pleased to see that IEC is gearing up for a live broadcast in mid-May, and I think the preparations shown here provide some indication that it should be quite interesting.
