Solid State Relay Required Only 50uA Drive Current
This circuit demands a control current that is 100 times smaller than that needed by a typical optically isolated solid state relays. It is ideal for battery-powered systems. Using a combination of a high current TRIAC and a very sensitive low current SCR, the circuit can control about 600 watts of power to load while providing full isolation and

Drive A Relay Using A 1-Wire Addressable Switch
The 1-Wire Net, or MicroLAN (by Maxim-Dallas), is a simple way to connect slow devices (such as sensors, relay drivers, switches, and so on) using simple components. These components contain the 1-Wire protocol handler, some type of interface to the external world, and often a parasitic power supply. You may build a very long string of 1-Wire comp

equivalent circuit of a solid state relay
Switch 50V AC voltage. Maximum drained current will be 5A. Frequency is 50Hz. Switching speed is not important, can be real slow, it is not a problem in my application. I wanted to use solid state relay at first for this purpose. But as soon as I started to search an SSR, I saw that their prices are too high. For a cheaper alternative solution,...
microcontroller 12V relay circuit converted to 5V relay under uC control
The BC547B has Vcbo=50V, Vceo=45V, Vebo=6V, where-as the BC548 in original circuit has Vcbo=30V, Vceo=30V, Vebo=5V, rest of the parameters being pretty same as per datasheet (hFE:220-450). 1HP Water pump (220VAC, 800W) - One thought is to use higher current rated (e. g. 30A) relay. But, I think I need to worry about EM feedback which might cause...
zener Flyback diodes issues and pull-in & hold current issues in this Relay circuit
Although this may be a basic question but I`m still struggling with it. In this schematic, two zener diodes D1 and D2 are connected back-to back across relay coil L1. The BVds = -30V for Q1. Can I use 15V(Vz = 15V) zeners for D1 and D2 instead of 5. 1 V zeners Will the relay coil or contacts can get damaged during turn-off of relay If required, I
arduino Selecting the right relay
A 5v power supply to act just like a switch. I will be controlling it with an Arduino like described here: You won`t be able to drive it directly from the Arduino pin, as most general purpose relays require at least 150mW to switch which is >30mA @ 5V. You will need to use something like this: The NPN can be just about any general purpose NPN...
relay In a circuit being switched by an NPN transistor do power supply and input need the same ground
Make a circuit that will allow me to switch on a relay that will turn on an LED. However, the relay is rated for 12 V, and I only have an input of 5 V, so I`m using an NPN transistor. to switch the power to the relay on and off. Here`s the schematic: If my 12 V power supply is 8 AA batteries (not sustainable, but I`m just using it for testing),...
transistors audio controlled relay circuit
A circuit that fires a relay when it detects audio pulses from one channel of an mp3 player. I`m going to record audio pulses in sync with the music to control a motor for mouth movement. So for your stereo player, you`ll just mix music/whatever onto (arbitrarily) the left channel and have the right just be a series of loud sine pulses Nick T...
relay Do I need a protection diode here
I have an automotive relay (from a scan of a workshop manual I`m afraid) which is rather more complexly wired up than the relays I`m familiar with. In this diagram: B/G - holds high if another condition is met (engine temp too high), to prevent the relay energising. (As far as I can tell. this is the correct logic for sure, not sure if it tech
microcontroller driving a relay with transistor and Opto-isolator
Controlling a relay with stm32 micro controller. For the isolation I have used a 4N33 opto-isolator. As my relay coil needs around 250 mA, I used a mps222 transistor. I figured that the logic gets inverted when I used the gpio as the source voltage for the opto-isolator led. I just used a pull up instead and connected the other end of the led...
relay How can i drive a 5v 120VAC 80mA with 15A contacts with a raspberry pi

switches Wiring a SPDT Relay
A SPDT switch that simply switches the relay over. Any pointers would be appreciated. When I currently energize the relay, I hear it cycling, which I would image that is not good. I simple want it to "switch" normally on and then when I energize the coil, switch is back. Take a picture of what you have now (i. e. your wired up breadboard). You...
How to Wire This Latching Relay
Switch a water solenoid valve using two water level switches, one will be placed at the top of a tank and will be NO (when water level is between full and empty) so that it will send a signal to the relay when the water reaches the top to stop the solenoid. The other switch will be at the bottom of the tank and will be NC so that i

Control a relay from an Arduino compatible board. When I try to activate the relay from the Arduino it takes at least a second to switch closed and sometimes does not switch closed at all. Digital pin 2 of the Arduino is connected to IN0 of this circuit (bottom left). I set it low to switch on the relay. VCC and ground on the low-voltage side...

Relay Timer with ATmega8 AVR MCU
A simple timer that can be used to turn on/off a load after user specified time. The prototype was developed using xBoard MINI, a low cost easy to use ATmega8 development board. The program was burned to the MCU`s flash memory using eXtreme Burner - AVR Software and Hardware. The Simple Device Timer project designed using ATmega8 AVR MVU.
The intended result is that the relay oscillates and the LEDs flash when the button is pressed, however when I press the button the leftmost LED lights constantly and nothing else happens. I get voltage across the left LED, the resistor and the capacitor, but no voltage across the second LED and I can`t hear my relay oscillating. There`s no sound

The circuit described here uses ultrasonic oscillations and operates based on the propagation velocity of these oscillations in the air. Thus, we can easily determine the distance of two points if the time within which the wave travels this distance is measured. There are three main categories of distance measurement methods in use: a) By...

Sometimes the precious metals are hidden too deep and are not detected except with complicated devices. In many cases, however, small pieces of precious metal buried near the surface can be detected by relatively simple means. Everyone is very attractive to find something potentially valuable, hidden a few centimeters below the soil. So many...
Fully automatic watering circuit for flower pots

Sub-Harmonic Bass Converter for Electric Guitars
The sub-harmonic bass generator is a sound producing unit for guitars. The sound it produces looks very much like that of the bass guitar. The octave generator is sometimes quite unusual since it does not produce any of the usual ways of coloring the sound, such as filtering or distortion. Instead, a frequency division system produces outputs...
Echo Depth Sounding Sonar for Boats
In the past the sounding (sea bottom measurement) was done with the "bullet", that is, with a heavy lead object that the seamen plucked into the sea hung from a calibrated rope. As soon as the "bullet" reached the bottom, the depth appeared directly from the calibration of the rope. This arrangement still exists in some yachts. The big...
