Water Level Indicator with 7 Segment Display

Water Level Indicator with 7 Segment LED Display

How this Water Level Indicator works:

When the water tank is empty condition, all the inputs of IC1 remain high. As a result, its output also remains high, making all the inputs of IC2 low. Display LTS543 at this stage shows “0”, which means the water tank is empty condition. Similarly, when the water level reaches L-1 position, the display shows “1”, and when the water level reaches L-8 position, the display shows “8”. Finally, when the tank is full, all the inputs of IC1 become low and its output goes low to make all the inputs of IC2 high. Display LTS543 now shows “9”, which means the water tank is full condition.

In the electrical sector, a schematic diagram is usually used to describe the design or model of equipment. Schematic diagrams are usually utilized for the maintenance and repair of electronic and electromechanical devices / units. Original schematics were made by hand, using standardized templates or pre-printed adhesive symbols, but nowadays Electrical CAD computer software is often used.

In electronic design automation, until the 1980s schematics were virtually the only formal representation for circuits. More lately, using the progress of computer system technology, other representations were introduced and specialized computer languages were developed, because with the explosive development of the complexity of electronic circuits, classic schematics are getting less practical. As an example, hardware description languages are indispensable for contemporary digital circuit design.

    Will the circuit work even if you replace the 12k resistors with 10k resistors? Also how could you add more 7 segment displays since I have the parts to do such a thing.
    Thank you for your cool and interesting project.
