Water Flowing in Pipe Indicator -- July 6, 2009
The vibrations associated with water flowing through a pipe are picked up by an inexpensive piezoelectric wafer. The signal from the wafer is first boosted by a micropower transistor amplifier and then fed to an ultra low power voltage comparator. When the vibration signal has sufficient amplitude, a FET transistor switch is activated. Drawing only 6uA, the whole circuit is powered by a lithium coin battery, which should power the circuit for many years. Source: discovercircuits   (View)

White LED is Powered by One NiMH Cell

Published:2012/9/6 20:42:00 Author:Ecco | Keyword: White LED , Powered , One NiMH Cell

White LED is Powered by One NiMH Cell
There are a lot of white LED driver circuits floating around. A popular circuit called the ?Joule Thief? can drive one white LED from a single 1.2v or 1.5v battery cell. Most of these circuits use one or two transistors to form a voltage boost circuit. Yes, they those circuit do drive a LED but they are not very efficient and they don?t do a good job of controlling the current to the LED. The circuit below uses a tiny LT1932 IC made by Linear Technology. This IC can be configured for a wide variety of LED driver needs. I have shown one simple application. The circuit takes power from one 1.2v NiMH rechargeable battery or a 1.5v disposable battery and drives a single white LED with 15ma of current. With an efficiency of about 70%, the circuit should run for about 40 hours, if a quality 2500ma-hour battery is used. Source: discovercircuits   (View)

Universal 3v LED Flasher #1

Universal 3v LED Flasher #1
The circuit below will flash any LED color with fixed current pulses powered by a 3v battery. It uses a charge pump approach, which routes a constant current pulse through the LED, regardless of the LED voltage requirement. Using this approach, white and blue LEDs, which normally require about 3.6v can be flashed with a 3v battery. With the component values selected, the LED is hit with 15ma current pulses lasting about 10ms every two seconds. This keeps the average current draw from a 3v battery to about 200uA. The circuit relies on a cheap 74HC14 hex Schmitt trigger inverter IC. One inverter forms a pulse generating oscillator. Other inverters are ganged together to increase the drive current. A two transistor circuit forms a constant sinking current controller. Source: discovercircuits   (View)

Super Bright 3v Powered LED Flasher (April 22, 2009)
I have posted several kinds of LED flashers over the years. This is yet one more flasher, designed to flash any high power LED of any color. It hits the LED with a 25ms 250ma pulse once every 2 seconds. This works out to an average current about 3ma. It is powered by any 3v source. I suggest two AA cells but a single 3v lithium coin type cell will also work. With fresh AA cells, the light should flash for about two weeks. The light flash is very intense and is perfect for any attention getting night time application. Source: discovercircuits   (View)

SIMPLE WHITE LED NIGHT LIGHT

SIMPLE WHITE LED NIGHT LIGHT
This simple circuit is designed to plug into a standard AC electrical outlet. It uses four super bright white light emitting diodes (LED) in conjunction with a capacitor coupled full wave rectifier circuit. The LEDs are mounted in a box and are angled slightly to bounce the light off of a nearby wall. The light should last about 10 years. The circuit draws less than one half of one watt of power and can therefore run continuously. In spite of the low power, the LEDs provide sufficient illumination for most night light applications. Circuit component values for both 120vac and 240vac are shown. Source: discovercircuits   (View)

Remote LED Indicator Light -- December 27, 2008

Remote LED Indicator Light  -- December 27, 2008
There are times when you would like to transmit a signal from one LED indicator light to second LED at another location. The circuit below works well for this application. It takes advantage of the fact that the internal infrared LED inside an opto-isolator has a lower voltage drop than the visible LED being tapped into. Using a Darlington type opto-isolator also means very little current needs to be diverted to the isolator. The photo-darlington side of the isolator can be used to turn on the remote LED using any convenient DC source. In automotive applications, this is often 12v. You can also use the output of the opto-isolator to drive a low power beeper. This might be handy for something like a ?check engine? or a ?windshield washer fluid light.

High Power LED Flasher  August 3, 2008
Power LEDs are becoming more popular these days. The DC input power to these devices ranges from 1 watt to 5 watts. Normal LEDs only receive about 0.05 watts. At this higher power, these devices can emit a lot of light. You can buy them in just about any color in the rainbow but white seems to be the most popular. One application for these devices is a flashing light. If the flash duration and flash rate is kept low, the average current can be low enough that even a small battery can last quite a while.

Ramping LED Driver

Published:2012/9/6 20:10:00 Author:Ecco | Keyword: Ramping, LED Driver

Ramping LED Driver
The circuit below was designed to drive a LED with an intensity ramping mode. Two 555 timers generate two different triangle waveforms. The upper device generates a 10KHz signal while the lower unit produces a 1Hz signal. The two signals are fed to a voltage comparator. The result is a pulse width modulation (PWM) signal, which with the aid of the FET, drives the LED in such a way that its average light output slowly ramps from about zero light to maximum and then slowly dims back down. The circuit should operate over a supply voltage ranging from 3v to 12v. You can easily vary the ramping time by changing the value of the 1M resistor. For an interesting effect, you can place a 1N4148 diode in parallel with the 1M resistor, with the cathode (banded end) side connected to pin 3. Source: discovercircuits   (View)
