Compressor Pump

How to electronically control an air horn?

Hey guys, someone I know gave me an air horn that used to be on a boat. The horn is controlled by an air cylinder that you have to pump manually to sound the horn. It's connected by a long tube. I was wondering, if it's possible to control it electrically, and if so, how? I was planning on feeding it 12V for use in another boat. Wouldn't it require the use of a remote tank that would have to stay filled? Thank you.

Yes, you'll need a supply of compressed air, because realistically, you're unlikely to be able to get a suitable compressor pump that will supply the quantity of air needed at the correct pressure instantaneously when you press the button.

So, you'll need:
1. A compressed air reservoir
2. A compressor to fill the reservoir - or you could have a manual pump for refilling the reservoir
3. A 12V air valve that is suitable for the pressure of air you're using.

I have an "Air Zound 2" horn on my bicycle that uses a reservoir of compressed air stored in a soft drinks bottle, and is refilled using a normal bike pump. You might like to look at that design.
