Brightness Control for small Lamps

Posted on May 21, 2012

Switch-mode driven 1.5V bulbs. This device was designed on request, to control the light intensity of four filament lamps (i.e. a ring illuminator) powered by two AA or AAA batteries, for close-up pictures with a digital camera. Obviously it can be used in other ways, at anyone`s will. Portable unit - 3V battery supply.

IC1 generates a 150Hz square wave having a variable duty-cycle. When the cursor of P1 is fully rotated towards D1, the output positive pulses appearing at pin 3 of IC1 are very narrow. Bulb LP1, driven by Q1, is off as the voltage across its leads is too
