LED Adjustable Speed Flasher
Model GSK-109
This is an excellent kit for introducing basic electronic principles.
Two LED’s will alternatively blink and the blinking speed is
adjustable. Kit is easy to assemble with minimal components.
Technical Specifications
nPower Source: 9-12 VDC
nConsumption: 16-22 mA max.
nAdjust flashing speed with potentiometer
nPCB dimensions: 1.39 x 1.22 inches
Operating Principles
This is a two LED circuit that works alternatively through
transistor 1 and transistor 2 in the form of a multi-vibrator
frequency circuit. When TR1 is powered, LED1 will light and
LED2 is off. When TR2 is powered, LED2 will light and LED1
is off. Blinking speed is controlled by potentiometer VR1.
Circuit Assembly
Please refer to Figures 1, 2, and 3 for aid in component
placement. It is recommended to start with lower components
i.e. diodes, resisters, electrolyte capacitors, and transistors.
Be careful to check polarity with Figure 3 before soldering. If a
problem is detected it is best too use a desoldering pump or
desoldering braids to remove component. This will minimize
potential damage to the printed circuit board.
Testing
Connect circuit to 9-12 VDC power source. LED1 and LED2
will work alternatively. Adjust blinking speed with VR1. If LED’s
do not light or blinking speed will not vary please review
Troubleshooting.
Troubleshooting
This circuit has only a few components. The main cause of
problems come from misplaced components or faulty soldering.
Utilize Figure 3 to ensure proper placement/polarity and
then check solder points for connectivity.
Accessories
Use GSB-17 (sold separately) to house the PCB and batteries.
