Relay Toggle Switch

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Relay Toggle Switch

I designed this relay circuit to function as a DPDT toggle which is controlled by a momentary switch. I strive to keep my circuits simple with little or no integration (555’s, transistors, etc). The circuit is shown active or “on” mode. Half of RL1 and RL2 manipulate the switching and… Read more »

Mains Remote Switch

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Mains Remote Switch

This compact design forms a remotely operated switch that receives its control signal via the mains voltage. The switch is operated using the ‘mains remote transmitter’ described elsewhere in this issue. With this transmitter, a switch should be connected between pins 1 and 2 of K1. Depending on the application,… Read more »

Heat Sensitive Switch

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Heat Sensitive Switch

At the heart of this heat-sensitive switch is IC LM35 (IC1), which is a linear temperature sensor and linear temperature-to-voltage converter circuit. The converter provides accurately linear and directly proportional output signal in millivolts over the temperature range of 0°C to 155°C. It develops an output voltage of 10 mV… Read more »

Master/Slave Switch

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Master/Slave Switch

In this age of enlightenment any sort of relationship that could be described as master/slave would be questionable but for the purposes of this circuit it gives a good idea of how it functions. The circuit senses mains current supplied to a ‘master’ device and switches ‘slave’ equipment on or… Read more »
