Passive Infrared (PIR) Motion Sensor Circuit

PIR with delay ON alarm

The post discuses the pinout details of the standard passive infrared (PIR) sensor RE200B and also explains how to make a motion detector circuit using a single transistor and relay, which can detect the IR radiation from human body and activate the attached relay. What is a PIR PIR is the acronym for Passive Infra … Read morePassive Infrared (PIR) Motion Sensor Circuit

TV Remote Control Tester Circuit

Remote control tester circuit using an opamp

We all use remote control handsets for controlling various household devices such as TV, AC, Music systems, curtains etc, and sometimes we seem to have problems with these devices, or even a newly purchased remote controller unit occasionally seem to malfunction, and identifying the issue becomes quite difficult for us. This simple 2 transistor circuit … Read moreTV Remote Control Tester Circuit

3 Simple Proximity Sensor Circuits

Three useful proximity sensor concepts are explained here, the first one using 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 by 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
