Lighthouse Beacon Flasher Kit (requires assembly) with Simulated Rotation
(to see a video clip, scroll down)
Effective 10/27/2013 all BK-100 kits and
assembled units will have an adjustable cycle time from approx 4 to 12 seconds supplied as
standard at no additional charge! The unit will remember the cycle setting when shut off and
restart in the same cycle speed. The cycle is adjusted by a simple button
Here is a great kit to bring a lighthouse or other rotating style beacon to life! The
kit includes a preprogrammed MicroComputer that slowly increases the bightness of a
3mm Super Bright White LED to simulated a light beam slowly swinging toward you. The
MicroComputer then produces a bright flash in the LED to simulate the light beam directly shining
in your direction. Then the MicroController decreases the intensity to simulate the light beam
moving away from you. The cycle then repeats over and over again. Great for HO and N Scale
Lighthouses or Garden Lighthouse. Assembly is fairly simple due to the small number of parts.
Don't have room Lighthouse on your layout! You can always make a
backdrop showing a small Lighthouse in the distance with the LED mounted in the backdrop for a
Solar Power Option: The unit may also be combined with our FK1004 Solar Night Light kit to
charge NiCad batteries during the day and automatically turn the unit on when it gets dark. The
option comes with the FK1004 unassembled kit, a 3 AA NiCad Battery pack and instructions
for hook up to the BK-100 Lighthouse Flasher kit.
