1 Year down many more to come. One year ago a friend inspired me to start this project, and it’s been great since then. Every month the number of visits is increasing and this is making me happy. I have some new ideas that i will present to you this “new year”, i hope you’ll like them.
I have to thank my readers for reading this blog and commenting and i’ll try not to let you down.
Also thanks to my fellow bloggers that helped me along the way:
Stay tuned, there are some great projects coming up.
You all know that opto osolator boards are used to pass signal between circuits without connecting them electrically. They are great for eliminating noise problems, or to connect circuits that have different voltages.
The opto isolator is very easy to use. Since it just passes signals through it, you just hook it up between the two different devices you want to communicate. Additionally, you will need to properly hook it up to each devices power supply. The device is intended to isolate the circuits electrically, so each side needs to be powered independently.

This schematic is ment to digitally display the output of an electronic Swissflow SF800 flow sensor. This sensor puts out an open collector square wave signal (like a fan RPM monitoring signal) between 50Hz (=0.5 liter/minute) and 2000Hz (=20 liter/minute).
By dividing the measured frequency by 10 and putting the decimal point at the right place you get directly a display in liter/minute. I don’t use the first digit output (output D) from the 74C925 to obtain a display of 10 to 9990Hz or xx.x liter/minute.

Mobile infrared electronic transmitter
Choose one key on your remote controller (from tv, video or similar), memorized it following a simple procedure and with that key you will able to turn ON or OFF any electrical device you wish. So, with every short press of that key, you change the state of relay in receiver (Ir-switch).
Memorizing remote controller key is simple and you can do it following this procedure: press key on Ir-switch and led-diode will turn ON. Now you can release key on Ir-switch, and press key on your remote controller. If you do that, led-diode will blink, and your memorizing process is finished.

Connecting a LCD display to the end of a printer-cable is a simple and effective way of providing additional functionality to your computer system. The printer-cable LCD can be mounted on your computer case or fitted inside a Jiffy-Box and displayed somewhere away from your case. Even the fully functional software interface is simple to install and configure. The parts used are a non-backlit 16 x 2 character LCD and a parallel port cable(printer cable).
