Keypad Controlled Switch No2

This is a simplified version of the 4-Digit Keypad Controlled Switch. I have modified the design to reduce the complexity of the circuit - and the number of components required. As a result - the code is somewhat less secure. However, there should be lots of situations where it will still be adequate.... [read more]

Automatic Headlight Brightness Switch

Driving the highway with your high-beam headlights can really increase your visibility, but can he a blinding hazard for other drivers. This simple circuit can be wired into your headlight switch to provide automatic switching between high and low beam headlights when there is oncoming traffic. It does this by sensing the lights of that traffic. In this way, you can drive safely with your high-beams on without blinding other drivers.... [read more]

Whistle Responder

Some 15 years ago it was common to see small key-holders emitting an intermittent beep for a couple of seconds after its owner whistled. These devices contained a special purpose IC and therefore were not suited to home construction. The present circuit is designed around a general purpose hex-inverter CMos IC and, using miniature components and button clock-type batteries can be enclosed in a matchbox. It is primarily a gadget, but everyone will be able to find suitable applications.... [read more]

Equalizer with Parametric Mid

The circuit constitutes a natural extension of Mic-Line balance unit, but can be adapted to any other audio circuit. It is made up of two units in the series : A) A classic unit bass/ Treble and B) a parametric unit of mid frequencies. Both units can also be used autonomously or each one separately, with the required buffer unit, from previous and subsequent circuits.... [read more]

Variable 3 - 24 Volt / 3 Amp Power Supply

This regulated power supply can be adjusted from 3 to 25 volts and is current limited to 2 amps as shown, but may be increased to 3 amps or more by selecting a smaller current sense resistor (0.3 ohm). The 2N3055 and 2N3053 transistors should be mounted on suitable heat sinks and the current sense resistor should be rated at 3 watts or more. Voltage regulation is controlled by 1/2 of a 1558 or 1458 op-amp.... [read more]

Tan Timer

This timer was deliberately designed for people wanting to get tanned but at the same time wishing to avoid an excessive exposure to sunlight.... [read more]
