    Through Beam Sensor (Flame and Smoke immune). Product search.

    Hi guys, I'm searching for a Through Beam Sensor to use in a boiler room. The beam can not be affected by open flame and smoke. I'm having trouble identifying such sensor, did any of you guys ever use something like this?

    Can I trim off the pins on a Force sensitive resistor without affecting the sensitivity?

    Hi all, I have some FSR 402 sensors that look like this: (Datasheet here) I also have some FCI clinchers that look like this: (LINK) Now I realized that I can add the clinchers only to a FSR without the pins. Can I trim off the end up to here: so I could add the clinchers? I would like...

    Car side-mirror dimmer simulator circuit - DIY

    Would like to make a simple car side-mirror simulator circuit. The side mirrors I installed (for better blind spot) do not have a dimmer circuit and I am getting LIN bus errors since the dimmer wires are disconnected. Would like to DIY something that fools the car into thinking it is...

    Circuit board to amplify and filter the electrical signals from the piezoelectric disks

    Hi, im working on creating a step counter using piezoelectric disks. The idea is that I want to use the disks as sensors and be able to read their voltage and current values with an Arduino Uno. Im also using a voltage sensor, the sensor that will be used is an ACS712 that can detect the flowing...

    Custom Flight Controller Board design - Suggestions and Criticisms

    Hello community, My name is Tommaso Bugliesi and I am currently designing a custom flight controller board. It's not just one board, but rather two boards to be stacked on top of each other using rubber dampers. The hole spacing is 30.5mm, and the overall dimensions of the two boards is...

    Would You Be Interested in an Affordable DIY Lock-In Amplifier?

    During my PhD, I spent countless hours conducting optical experiments, where lock-in amplifiers became an integral part of my research. Their precision and effectiveness were unmatched, but so was their cost. Recently, while doing a personal optics project, I found myself in need of a lock-in...

    Symmetric Output Sensors (Help)

    A sensor works by outputting a voltage of -400mV to +400mV with a impedance of 1M Ohm. a. Design and simulate a circuit that only uses active components, such as an in the form of an OP-AMP so that the output reads 0V to 5V. Create the circuit in LTspice. Can anyone help me with this topic...

    Photodiode ThorLabs DET08CL not outputing what's expected

    I'm currently trying to characterise a NIR 940nm laser device that I have recently made. The main thing I want to achieve is to see if the laser is truly doing what the enable signal told it to. I began with a rather slow square wave - 1Hz at 50% duty cycle. I used a ThorLabs DET08CL...

    Search for UART sensors

    I’m developing a Modbus RTU architecture. The master of this architecture is my Beagebone Black , which I want to connect via RS-485 serial communication to my sensors. Since I’m using RS-485 converters (RS-485 Converter) which need a UART input as far as I understand, I was looking for sensors...

    Troubleshooting circuit design for sensor input and desired output range

    I designed a circuit to process input from a sensor with a range of -300 mV to 300 mV. The desired output of the circuit is 0 V to 600 mV. To achieve this, I used the op-amp equation Vout = Vin + 0.3 as a basis for my design. However, when I simulated the circuit, the output was only around 900...
