Toy Car Remote Control

The circuit, consisting of an infrared transmitter-receiver pair, utilizes IR beam transmission to switch the toy car “on” or “off’, yeah… it will be only switching on and switching off, you may modify this circuit to make the toy car to turn left or right. To operate the toy car, you have to hold the… Read More »

Seismic / Vibration Sensor

This is the circuit diagram of seismic / vibration sensor. The circuit simulates a seismic sensor to detect vibrations/sounds. It’s really sensitive and may detect vibrations due to the motion of animals or human beings. So it could be utilized to monitor protected locations to restrict entry of undesirable individuals or animals. The circuit applies… Read More »

Ultrasonic Motion Detector

This is a ultrasonic motion detector (or movement detector) circuit. The circuit claimed has a high movement sensitivity. Even air moving (hot air rising, wind blowing) will trigger it when the trimpot is set near the most sensitive position. The transmitter sends out a steady ultrasonic tone at 40kHz. At this frequency the wavelength is… Read More »

Simple Metal Detector based CS209A

This is a very easy build, simple metal detector circuit, built based on a CS209A IC. The circuit will give surprising results and draws extremely small current from a 9 volt battery. It worked great on the bench, but not so good outside for common metal detecting. But definately a great circuit for sensing studs… Read More »

Load Cell Amplifier

I’ve found some interesting schematic of load cell amplifier. As we know, load cell amplifier is pretty expensive with fair price range of 100-300 USD. You may built your own load cell amplifier to get the lower cost. Here the two scheme diagram of load cell amplifier circuit: Load Cell Amplifier using AMP04: source: http://cgi.ebay.com/Load-Cell-Amplifier-Improved-Better-Stability-New-/350451149452
