State-of-the-Art Sensors for Oldest Working Beam Engine in the World

The Boulton and Watt steam engine, originally installed in 1812, is the oldest working beam engine in the world.

It is on this 200-year-old steam engine that engineers want to install the latest state-of-the-art sensors and instrumentation to monitor position, speed and acceleration of the piston.

This Mechatronics Project – ‘marrying 200 years of technology’ – has 5 main aims.

  1. To understand the impact on the engine when running at full load.
  2. To explore engine efficiency.
  3. To illustrate to visitors the internal workings of the engine in real-time.
  4. To display information to less-able visitors unable to climb the stairs.
  5. To provide data for educational and research projects at all levels.

Read how they monitored the position of the piston.
