Series Two Kits  

Uses for Series 2 Kits

Kit 2a and 2b

Uses include entry and exit delays for alarms (use Kit 1n to give a set time OFF), limiting the ringing time of a doorbell and electronic photographic timers. Kit 1z can be used to interface the monostable to other low voltage devices or an astable such as Kit 2e or Kit 2f can be controlled directly.

Kit 2c and 2d

These kits can be used as a visual output for the light, temperature and moisture sensors of our series one kits. A flashing light is more noticeable than a steady light. These circuits can be used in many projects where a flashing light output is required. For example in alarm circuits. Used with our series one kits you can design light beam alarms, frost warning alarms, fridge/freezer failure alarms, rain alarms etc.

Kit 2e and 2f

This type of circuit is useful in alarms and musical applications. It can be combined with series one kits to make audible light/dark, wet/dry, or hot/cold sensors or alarms. With a timing circuit (1e or 2a or 2b) it can make a kitchen or darkroom timer.

Kit 2g and 2h

Uses include latches for alarms, where the set wire is a door or window switch and the reset wire is a push switch to turn off the alarm. Devices or an astable such as Kit 2e or Kit 2f can be controlled directly. Build two light sensors using kits 1c and 1g and you can use them to set and reset this circuit to operate a stop clock or timer to time a moving object between two light beams. Kits 2g or 2h can be used to latch a steady hand game - use kit 2e or 2f to produce the sound output.
