    Electricity Generator

    I want to change moves (right and left) to electricity.
    Is there a generator can do this or sensor?

    Electricity Generator

    I do not understand what you want. Are you looking for something to convert an oscillating movement into electricity - like some watches?

    You could use a DC motor as a generator, but if your movement is oscillating then you would probably need to rectify the voltage produced.

    Similarly, you could pass a magnet through a coil, like a solenoid. Again, the voltage will need rectifying as it will change sign with the direction.

    Electricity Generator

    Hi,
    I believe, that these isnt other as a normal generator(as Keith proposed too)_you have a moving magnet (or an electromagnet) in front of a plain coil or even inseide a round coil...
