Energy Leak Detector Circuit Diagram

This sensitive circuit is basically a comparator, detecting very slight temperature changes in respect to the ambient temperature. It was primarily intended to detect draughts around doors and windows that cause energy leaks but can be used in many other ways, when a sensitive temperature change detector is needed. Two LEDs are used to signal if the temperature change is pointing above (Red LED) or below (Green LED) the ambient temperature.... [read more]

Stereo Headphone Amplifier Circuit Schematic

Apart from the obvious usage as a headphone amplifier, the circuit can be used for a range of applications where a wide bandwidth low power amplifier is needed. The circuit is based on an opamp, with its output current boosted by a pair of transistors.... [read more]

A Simple Fire-Door Alarm

This circuit will let you know when something that should be kept closed - has in fact been left open. Attach it to a Fire-Door. It will allow you to pass through the door as usual. However, if it's left open for more than 30-seconds or so - the buzzer will sound.... [read more]

Quality Stereo Wireless Microphone or Audio Link

This stereo FM wireless microphone also makes a great quality audio link. We tested it to beyond 50 meters and it was rock solid. It’s certainly not the first wireless microphone we’ve ever published but this one is a little different. It’s stereo, providing surprisingly good quality sound. Second, it has a really good range. We tested it at well over 50m and it was still performing very well – noise-free, in fact – but at the time we couldn’t get our receiver any further away. So it’s likely to have even better range than that.... [read more]

Photo Electric Street Light

This is basically a Schmitt Trigger circuit which receives input from a cadmium sulfide photo cell and controls a relay that can be used to switch off and on a street lamp at dawn and dusk. I have built the circuit with a 120 ohm/12 volt relay and monitored performance using a lamp dimmer, but did not connect the relay to an outside light.... [read more]

NiCd Battery Charger With Reverse Polarity Protection

This NiCd battery Charger can charge up to 7 NiCd batteries connected in series. This number can be increased if the power supply is increased with 1.65V for each supplementary battery. If Q2 is mounted on a proper heatsink, the input voltage can be increased at a maximum of 25V. Unlike most of comercial NiCd chargers available on the market, this charger has a reverse polarity protection. Another great quality is that it does not discharge the battery if the charger is disconnected from the power supply.... [read more]
