This circuit contains one light-emitting diode which flashes on and off at a rate determined by the 555 timer integrated circuit and its associated components. The rate of flashing can be changed by adjusting the variable resistor with a small screwdriver (not supplied).
AVAILABLE versions of this kit contain one l.e.d. of a single colour (either blue or green or red or white).
Please state the COLOUR you require in the "note to seller" box at the checkout.
Watch the circuit working on the Irby Electronics YouTube channel.
When this circuit was tested, the Duracell Plus Power 9 volt battery was still producing a good light output after 40 hours of continuous use.
The circuit is made on track board (approx. 6 cm x 2 cm) and requires 1 x PP3 battery (not supplied). Precision soldering is ESSENTIAL for this kit so that solder on one track is not splashed across to an adjacent copper track.
These tools are needed to make this kit (not supplied):
small pliers for bending component leads and link wire,
small wire cutters for cutting component leads and link wire,
3 mm drill bit or sharp craft knife for breaking the copper track,
small, low power soldering iron, e.g. 15 watt, 18 watt or 25 watt.
Please read the safety warning in the About Irby Electronics section before ordering a kit.
