Battery Level Meter


With this circuit, you can assess the voltage level in Lead Acid Car battery or Inverter battery. It gives LED indications in Dot Mode display to show the level of voltage in the battery. A Lead Acid battery attains 13.8 volts and tubular battery 14.8 volts in the fully charged state. If the battery voltage level drops below 10 volts, it needs immediate charging, and if it is not attaining full charge, it cannot be used to drive the load.

Appliance Guard


This circuit protects home appliances from low voltage. When the voltage in the AC lines drop below the normal voltage, the circuit cut off  power to the appliance and keep it off till the normal voltage resumes. This gadget is useful to protect appliances like Fridge which may over heat if the line voltage drops below 180 volts. Voltage drop also increases the current consumption in Fridge due to over stress on the compressor.

IR Sensor Tester


Most of the Remote control systems use TSOP 1738 IR Sensor module to control various functions. This IR Sensor is highly sensitive and may damage easily, if is supply voltage increases above 6 volts. This tester is useful to check the working of the IR Sensor. It gives audio-visual indications when the IR sensor is working properly.

Load ON / OFF Indicator


This  circuit can indicate the ON / OFF status of AC Loads. Two high bright LEDs indicate the power ON and power OFF status of the load connected to the AC outlet. It is highly useful to avoid the wastage of electricity if devices like heater, electric iron, Soldering iron etc are switched on unnecessarily for long time.

Electroluminescent Lighting


Electroluminescence is the Optical and Electrical phenomenon in which a material emits light when current passes through it. This phenomenon is entirely different from the emission of light from bulbs and other light emitting devices. It is resulting from the radiative recombination of electrons and holes in a semi conductor material. The excited electrons generate Photons to give light. LEDs and Phosphor displays are typical examples of electroluminescent lighting.
