voltage How to amplify 3.3 volts to 8-9v


Posted on Feb 5, 2014

Turn on a `black box` of leds (that operates at 8-9v) when my motion sensor is activated. The problem I`ve got is that the output of my PIR is only 3. 3 volts. Here is my crappy schematic. There are a few things that need to be fixed. First, A resistor is not a good way to reduce voltage. Second, a model number for the PIR sensor, would be useful. As would the current requirements for the LED box. How are the leds normally

connected to power, a dc wallwart/adaptor Most PIR sensors outputs are only on for a very small amount of time per trigger, with a lockout period, so the leds might only be on for a very short time. A generic answer would be using a transistor as a switch, but you need to know the PIR output current and the LED box current for a proper answer.

Power will be coming from a 9v battery. Rhyuk Apr 16 `13 at 1:08
