Hot Water Level Indicator

A simple device to indicate various levels of hot water in a tank.... [read more]

Capacitive Sensor Circuit Diagram

The purpose of this circuit is to animate shop-windows by means of a capacitive sensor placed behind a post-card-like banner. The card is placed against the glass inside the shop-window, and the visitor can activate the relay placing his hand on the card, from the outside. Especially suited for toy-shops, the circuit can activate model trains, small electric racing cars, lights etc. Further applications are left at user's imagination. Adopt it to increase the impact of your shop-window on next Christmas season!... [read more]

Live-line Detector

If the unit is brought close to a live conductor (insulated, and even buried in plaster) capacitive coupling between the live conductor and the probe clocks the counter, and causes the LED to flash 5 times per second, because the 4017 IC divides the mains 50Hz frequency by 10.... [read more]

Portable Microphone Preamplifier

This circuit is mainly intended to provide common home stereo amplifiers with a microphone input. The battery supply is a good compromise: in this manner the input circuit is free from mains low frequency hum pick-up and connection to the amplifier is more simple, due to the absence of mains cable and power supply....

Modular Preamplifier Switching Center

This module can be a necessary addition to the Modular Preamplifier Control Center when more than two sources need to be connected to the preamplifier chain. Four high level inputs can be selected by means of SW1 and routed to the output. The output of this module must be connected by a suitable cable to one of the two inputs of the Control Center module. In this way, a total of five inputs will be available to the user of this module combination.... [read more]

Magnetic Gun

When optimally tuned, it will propel a small slug about 1.5 metres high, or 2.5 metres horizontally.... [read more]
