In this video, the presenter is going to build 5 useful projects based on the LDR sensor. These projects are easy to construct and can be built at home. Courtesy: AbTabi
In this video, the presenter is going to build an LED-based black encloser for converting 35mm Photographic films into a digital photo using a smartphone. Video Courtesy: TechBuilder
Most commercial torchlights use three AA or AAA cells connected in series, which produces 4.5V to drive white LEDs using a current-limiting resistor. These flashlights do not drive the LEDs efficiently due to lack of a current-control circuit. Presented...
Stroboscope is a device used to make a cyclically moving object appear slow-moving or stationary. This is realised by illuminating the object intermittently with short pulses of light. Stroboscope is used in the study of insect flight. It can...
Use of brushless DC motors (BLDCs) is on the rise. But their control usually requires rotor position information for selecting the appropriate commutation angle. Normally, a Hall Effect sensor is used to sense rotor position. But in cost sensitive...
Here is a simple, automatic water-level controller for overhead tanks that switches on/off the pump motor when water in the tank goes below/above the minimum/maximum level. The water level is sensed by two floats to operate the switches for...
Most battery chargers stop charging the battery when it attains its maximum charging voltage set by the circuit. This 12V battery charger circuit charges the battery at a particular voltage, that is, absorption voltage, and once the maximum charging...
Presented here is a simple pedometer (Distance Counter) circuit. It measures the distance covered by you while walking. It may not work very well for running! Circuit and working Fig. 1 shows a circuit diagram of the distance counter. The circuit...
Pulse-width modulation (PWM) or duty-cycle variation methods are commonly used in speed control of DC motors. The duty cycle is defined as the percentage of digital ‘high’ to digital ‘low’ plus digital ‘high’ pulse-width during a PWM period. Fig....
We have heard of events/parties going out of control due to gate crashing by uninvited guests. Now, as a solution, imagine your door counting the number of invitees and raising an alarm when the number exceeds the guest list....
