LED pilot light circuit with FET

This is the LED pilot light (or LED indicator) circuit. LEDs (Light Emitting Diode) part are interesting things. They only operate at DC supply within specific tolerances, and generally connected with a current limiting resistor towards the power source. Rather than a resistor, it is possible to use a FET Read more…


lantern and flasher circuit

Here is the circuit diagram of lantern dimmer / flasher designed by Tony Van Roon: There are two circuit modes: dimming and flashing. The flasher mode is useful for warning other drivers of your troubles and it may be adjusted to have a very short flash duration for long-term use Read more…


2 Transistor LED Flasher Circuit Diagram

The following is LED Flasher circuit which use 2 transistors for LED switching. The circuit works similar to flip-flop operation. Components List: R1 = 10M ohm R2 = 1K – 100K ohm R3 = 470 ohm C1 = 0.47?F – 10?F/25V D1 = 1N914 Q1 = 2N3904 Q2 = 2N3906 Read more…


220V Light Dimmer Circuit Electronic

This simple 220V light dimmer circuit can be used to adjust the brightness of mains lights. It also can be used to adjust the speed of AC motors. It uses a triac, diac and has a radio-frequency interference (RFI) noise suppression circuit built into it as well. Schematic diagram: Components Read more…


220V LED Flasher

This is a 220V LED flasher circuit which is intended as a reliable replacement to thermally-activated switches used for Christmas tree lamp-flashing. This a low cost circuit and easy to built since it only use little amount of electronic components.. Schematic diagram: Component Parts: R1_________ 100K R2,R5______ 1K R3,R6______ 470R Read more…


Courtesy Light Circuit Diagram

The following scheme is a courtesy light circuit you can use to delay an electronic device to be disabled. For example, you can connect this circuit to the lamp in your room. When you turn off the lamp with a switch on the circuit, the lamp will remain lit in Read more…


Lamp Brightness Controller Circuit

Here’s the3V lamp brightness controller circuit diagram used to control the brightness of the light bulb. You simply use the two AA or AAA battery to make this circuit works. Example usage of this circuit is to adjust the brightness of images for close-up photo shoot with a digital camera. Read more…
