App note: Reduced power dissipation of relay loads

Sunday, April 21st, 2019

Another app note from ON Semiconductors on using PWM technique to reduce power consumed when latching mechanical relays. Link here (PDF) Integrated circuit driver circuits often use relay loads in their application. Output drivers are a source of power dissipation on the IC. Latching relays can be used to keep...

6 channel speaker selector

Monday, April 30th, 2018

Dilshan Jayakody published a new build: If you are an audio enthusiast and if you have multiple audio systems and speakers, you may definitely need to have a speaker selector switch. These switches allow you to route a audio signal through a switching system and distribute it to various speakers....

Magic Mote MSP430G2553 wireless sensor node with NRF24L01+ module

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Tom from Magic Smoke writes: This is my first time designing a PCB for MSP430. I really like the NRF24L01+ booster pack but I would like something smaller to use for remote temperature sensors. With that in mind I've designed a 24.5 x 50 mm PCB (2 on a 5x5...

Vocoder encoder relay board

Friday, November 20th, 2015

Jaanus published a new build, a vocoder encoder relay board: I designed couple of vocoder encoders. Vocoders are devices that encode sound by chopping it up by frequency bands and express each frequency band only by its amplitude. This kind of representation allows to mix all the frequency bands with each other. This...

PIR sensor

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

An automatic PIR sensor project by Rajkumar Sharma of Electronics Lab: Project is based on Holtek’s IC HT7610A, which is a CMOS LSI chip designed for use in automatic PIR lamp, flash or buzzer control. It can operate in 3-wire configuration for relay applications. In our project we have used relay instead...

Wireless ADC to relay example

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

Ondřej Karas of DoItWireless writes: Sometimes, you need to measure analog signal and then switch something on or off according to the result. This short example shows, how to do it. Everything you need is DDC-SE-01 module as a sensor module and DDC-RE-01 as relay module. Of course you need DK-EVAL-04...

electric imp-Controlled 120VAC relay switcher

Friday, January 31st, 2014

Dillon Nichols blog about his electric imp-Controlled 120Vac relay switcher build:     I bought an electric imp about a year and a half ago when they were released. I loved it's simplicity and made a few temporary projects involving it but wanted to keep it for something more advanced. After all...

Magic Mote thermostat and wireless temperature sensor

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

Tom's another cool project the Magic Mote thermostat and wireless temperature sensor: A homemade thermostat up in the basement rafters controls the heating in my home. The smart bit is the radio frequency communication that connects it to a remote temperature sensor. So, I'm planning a home automation system based around...

Relay control board on DP5031 PCB

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

Tom writes: Here's a breakout board for those Songle SRD series relays that are so cheap on Ebay. It fits nicely on the Dangerous Prototypes standard PCB size DP5031. Electromechanical relays are generally employ small signals to switch much higher voltages and currents. As a result, a nice big gap...

Switch AC appliances remotely with cellular control

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

Ezflyr built an AC relay switch that receives commands over the cellular phone network. An ADH8066 quad-band GSM cellular module handles the communication, while a PIC18F2550 controls the relays and reads temperature sensors. The goal of this project is to remotely switch heaters on his aircraft, which requires a few...
