Alcohol Detector Meter Circuit using MQ-3 Sensor Module

MQ-3 sensor LM393 comparator circuit

The simple alcohol detector circuit discussed here will accurately sense the emanation of alcohol gas from a selected source, such as from the mouth of a drunkard, when used as a breathalyzer. It’s cheap and a useful device which can be used by all authorized personnel such as a cops or traffic police for nabbing drunken … Read moreAlcohol Detector Meter Circuit using MQ-3 Sensor Module

2 Simple Motion Detector Circuits using PIR

PIR with delay ON alarm

The post discuses two simple motion detector circuits using op amp and transistor. We also discuss the pinout details of the standard passive infrared (PIR) sensor RE200B. The first circuit uses an op amp, while the second design works with a single transistor and relay for detecting the IR radiation from a moving human body … Read more2 Simple Motion Detector Circuits using PIR

3 Simple Proximity Sensor Circuits

Three useful proximity sensor concepts are explained here, the first concept is based on an ordinary opamp LM358, the second one using IC LM567 which functions with a phase locked loop principle ensuring very accurate response for the detection. The third circuit works using the ubiquitous IC 555. Let’s learn each one with a step … Read more3 Simple Proximity Sensor Circuits

Using TSOP17XX Sensors with Customized Frequencies

We know that the center or band-pass operating frequency of a TSOP17XX IR sensor is assigned to a particular frequency which makes it difficult to use these sensors for designing unique or customized frequency based remote control circuits. In this post we will try to figure out an idea for enabling these sensors to work … Read moreUsing TSOP17XX Sensors with Customized Frequencies

Car Tank Water Sensor Circuit

The article explains a simple car tank water sensor alarm circuit using IC 555 and a pulsating signal on the sensing probes to pevent corrosion on the probes. The idea was requested by Mr. Peter. Circuit Objectives and Requirements I couldn’t find how to post a project proposal on your website. May be you can … Read moreCar Tank Water Sensor Circuit
