Inductor saturation tester alternative route to dump the excess energy
Yes, it does charge the inductor again. Diodes are a good that they will not charge the inductor back but of course dissipate fair amount of instantaneous power due to the forward voltage drop. One way would be to monitor the current and stop driving those fets when the current turns negative, but I guess that is quite complex solution. I think...
12/24/48 V D.C. Tester
The present tester is intended primarily for testing the 24 V electrical circuits found on most pleasure craft. However, if the resistors are given different values, the circuit may, of course, be used for other voltage ranges. For 12 V, the value of the resistors should be 1. 2 k, and for 48 V, 4. 7 k. The tester should be connected to the +ve an

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.

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...
