One leg of the photocell (Rl) is tied to the +15 volt supply and the other end is connected to ground through resistor R2, forming a voltage-divider network. The non-inverting input of the 741 op amp, IC1, is tied to the junction formed by Rl and R2, while its inverting input is grounded through resistor R3. When switch SI is pressed, another...
Automatic contrast meter
The circuit arrangement consists of a photo-amplifier which feeds a voltage derived from varying light levels in an enlarger to a pair of peak detectors. One follows the peak positive voltage and the other the peak negative voltage. The capacitors used for storing the voltage peaks in the followers also form part of sample and hold circuits...
The darkroom timer/controller uses few external components: a display, a digit driver, keyboard, and output switching devices. A 4-digit common-cathode LED display is desirable for dark room environments. The time base is provided by shaping up the 50/60 Hz ac line. A DPDT switch (Si) is used to select a resolution of or 1 seconds and to...

You can set the interval from about 5-30 seconds. A relay operates the slide-change mechanism. Op amp Ul forms a sort of Schmitt trigger. Resistors Rl and R2 bias the noninverting input at pin 3 of Ul to half the supply voltage. Feedback resistor R3 increases or reduces the bias to pin 3, depending on whether the output of Ul is high or low....
Transistor Ql remains off until the magnetic switch connected to Jl closes. When that happens, the 9 Vis connected through Rl to Ql"S base. Ql turns on, thereby charging C2 through relay Kl, which causes Kl "s contacts to close. Since the contacts connect viaJ2 to the remote control jack in the camera, which in tum connects to the camera"s...
The NE555 circuit is a basic one-shot timer with a relay connected between the output and ground. It is triggered with the normally open momentary contact switch, which when operated, grounds the trigger input at pin 2. This causes a high output to energize Kl which closes the normally open contacts in the lamp circuit. They remain closed...
Insulated-gate, field-effect transistor (IGFET), Q2 and silicon photo cell Zl form the heart of this circuit. Transformer T1 is an audio-output type, but it"s reversed in the circuit. A sudden flash from a photoflash unit detected by Zl sends a voltage pulse through the low-impedance winding of Tl via Rl. That voltage pulse is stepped-up in...
This circuit is used for remote photographic flash units that flash at the~ame time as the flash attached to the camera. This circuit is designed to the trigger cord or hot shoe connection of a commercial portable flash unit and triggers the unit from the light produced by the light of the flash unit attached to the camera. This provides...
This circuit will record commentary and/ or music on one track of a tape and put the beeps that change the slides on another track. Gate U2a is used to trigger U1, which is configured as a timer when a pulse is received from either the tape input or via pushbutton switch Sl. Timer U2 outputs one pulse for every input pulse received, no matter...

Meter Ml, a +/-50-uA zero-center D`Arsonval meter movement is driven by Ul, a TL081 FET op amp, through R3. The gain of Ul is set at 11 by Rl and R2, while capacitor 01 is used to restrict the bandwidth of Ul to 1.6 Hz. Power for the circuit is derived from a simple dual-polarity 12- V power supply (consisting of Tl, D3, D4, 02, and 03). A...

Darkroom Timer Circuit
The electronic darkroom timer is built around a 555 oscillator/timer, a pair of general-purpose transistors, a buzzer, and an LED. The 555 (Ul) is configured as an astable multivibrator (free-running oscillator). The frequency of the oscillator is determined by the values through i3 and Cl through C4. Switch SI is used to divide the capacitor...

Two gates of a 4011 arc used as a comparator. When the resistance of R4 decreases the voltage at pin 1 and 2 increases, producing a logic zero at pin 3, causing pin 4 to go high and activating the LED.

Camera serializer/deserializer chip set
Many systems that require a user to manually enter data feature a keyboard similar to that in Figure 1. Although early keypads comprised arrays of individually wired switches, a typical modern keypad comprises a matrix of x and y lines. Pressing a key creates a momentary connection between an x line and a y line.
This circuit can be used for multiple cameras with one monitor. The circuit can be operated manually or automatically.

Ultrasonic distance finder circuit
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...
Simple Metal detector circuit with CD4030
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...
