Intro to Breadboard Electronics

Author: admin  |  Category: Electronics

electronics In this podcast, Bre Pettis shows you how to set up a breadboard for power and then play around with electronics on it Note: In the podcast, I mention Charles Platt’s article is from Make: volume 11. Its actually in Make: Volume 10.

    you would want to put a monostable circuit, the trigger being the sensor. The output would go to the relay. regardless if the sensor is still active or not, 5 seconds later it will shut off. use a google rc time constant calculator for the 5 second timing

    Im a detecting the object using infrared sensor (such as a photoelectric sensor). The photoelectric sensor will trip a relay and fire the motor. I want to some how wire in a timer chip to tell the motor to remain on for about 5 seconds. Thanks.

    you are talking about a complex circuit. a 555 would not be useful, if u are turning it off as soon as it is undetected. how are tring to detect an object?

    Can I use the 555 timer chip to turn on or off a motor with a time delay of about 5 seconds or less? I’m looking for the best application for a to turn on a motor when an object is detected, and turn off the motor when the object is not their. Any help is really appreciated.

    actually, a regulator is no more efficient than using a resistor divider to lower the supply voltage. it works in essentially the same way, only the resistance in the regulator is a transistor which can vary its resistance to insure that the output voltage stays steady for any load current.

    if you hook up a regulator bakcwards it creates alot of heat and it can give you a 2nd degree burn

    a regulator is more efficient and takes up way less space.
