Build a Newman Engine

Here you have the first of a series of articles where the construction of a Newman's engine.

The author, as on many other occasions, is Jorge Rebolledo. I have never heard of this type of engine, let's see what we can learn ...

How to make a Newman motor

Engine parts or components.

  1. Circular base
  2. Methacrylate supports
  3. switch
  4. axis of rotation
  5. neodymium magnets
  6. Bearings
  7. counterbalance
  8. magnetic wire

We will give 7 turns of magnetic wire to our motor.

Two neodymium magnets are placed in parallel, using a plastic washer cut in half. They are tightly coupled to each other to the axis of rotation.

The switch.

We will continue with the other parts shortly. But to end a video of the engine running

And we leave a video of the engine running

  1. El Magnetic switch It is placed in front of the engine, as indicated in the photo, this makes the engine work. connects and disconnects the current very quickly.
  2. Do not forget to place an ACE neon bulb to protect your transistor
  3. The outlet is 12 volts, and the movement of the magnets generates a huge magnetic field, generating little current consumption and giving an additional benefit. Returns the voltage for you to charge your batteries, even those of your car.
  4. This is a beautiful engine. A good project for your school or a great personal challenge.

We build 2 small coils of very fine magnetic wire and join the two, leaving two ends (positive * and negative -)

last phase of the newman electric motor

We add a current rectifier to the circuit. The voltage obtained was 29V, which we lowered to 12V with a zener diode.

Use as a magnetic current generator

The motor generates current with magnets A and B (image), when the shaft rotates, it passes at high speed through the magnets, producing electrical energy.

The LEDs are protected by resistors.

Conclusion

The engine is almost perfect,

  • consumes very little energy,
  • does not heat up,
  • makes no noise,
  • is a current generatore, charge batteries
  • and it is excellent to display at home demonstrating your talent.

It is not something that is practical because it is big. In my case, what mattered most to me was what I learned during the construction process ...

Here you have a video where it shows how it works.

If you have doubts you can do so in the comments or by writing to the author skycollection@hotmail.com

    • Maybe with a capaitor and not a battery, what power does it have? They told me how many horses, if you put a battery with more power, can it move something heavy? Maybe a bicycle and alaves generate electricity for itself by making a vehicle with infinite energy?
    • and if it is used as a generator? Or why don't hydroelectric plants use neodymium magnets in their coils so they would make more electricity and it would be cheaper, don't you think?

  1. my corduroy I need some information on that subject, I need to do a project something similar to that to create electrical energy from mechanical energy, this project is to pass the matter and I would appreciate if you can help me. I leave you my email so that we can get in touch. Thanks in advance

  2. pana, could you provide me with the information on the theories and the laws that act on the operation of the engine is that I need them for a project my email is blue-rey17@hotmail.com I thank you in advance, it would be a great favor and the page is fine

  3. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THE NUMBER OF CABLE THAT IS NEEDED FOR EACH COIL AND HOW MANY VOLTS IT GENERATES AT THE OUTPUT OF THE COIL IN ADDITION TO HOW MANY ENTER IF YOU CAN SEND ME MOST OF THE DATA AS WELL AS THE CONSTRUCTION PROCESS, I WOULD THANK YOU A LOT BECAUSE IT IS SCHOOL ... THANK YOU ... MY MAIL diegomontano88@hotmail.com

  4. Your motor is very interesting, but I have a question and I would like to know if you can answer it, the point is that I saw a project in which electrical energy was produced from a computer fan, mechanically, I understand that it is due to the variation In the magnetic field, what is not clear to me is the way in which the cables are placed inside the rotor, although it is true that the negative and positive poles go in pairs to make the variation, it is not very clear to me how it should to connect.

    Thank you.

  5. Hello I am trying to make a newman motor and I am fine but I do not know how to do the small generator with 2 coils. I have the coils made but or the electronic components have or how they are connected for the 12 volts.
    Thanks in advance. My email is antoniopatrol@yahoo.com x if you could send me a pekeño eskema of the coils and the electrical connections of the same

  6. Look if you are from a ki from Mexico in gto this a factory and they cost 71 pesos they send them by parcel this is the tel 018006743676 ask and they tell you how to pay I order 8 and they were 704.58 with shipping and insurance included

  7. Hello, it occurred to me that in order not to waste any energy, magnets could be put instead of the coils, this would be my question and it would be infinite generation

  8. Greetings, very interesting project, I try to replicate it, it would be possible for you to send me the information about what is needed to.build it, how many.laps does the winding need and how to.calibrate it, advises me, and some tips that you know. My email is juan-chivas2008@hotmail.com beforehand
    Thanks greetings

  9. I need to move a (toy) car with this motor. We saw that the first part could serve as a mechanism for the wheels, I don't know if that will be possible because I don't think it has enough force to turn the wheels.
    The second part of the project could serve as a mechanism and incidentally function as a charger for the battery.
    Then I saw that the engine has a third part.
    My question is that if it can work only with the first two parts of the engine, is it necessary to build the third part?
