Mains-operated Capacitive Sensor

Posted on Apr 22, 2012

This very simple circuit acts as a high sensitivity capacitive sensor. Lamps and/or Buzzers are operated at half the mains supply voltage when a part of the human body comes in contact with the sensor or approaches it at a close distance. The circuit can be used as an alternative to the Door Alarm or Capacitive Sensor circuits, already available on this website.
