Description. With this cool circuit integrated to your cars headlight system , you can drive cool headed in high beam.The circuit will take over the duty of low beaming the headlight when vehicles approach against , and high beams the lights when they pass over. The circuit is based on a photo transistor(Q1) for sensing the approaching vehicles and transistor Q2 (BC177) for switching the relays for controlling the headlight.When the light from the opposite vehicle falls on Q2...

Description. The circuit diagram present here is that of a street light that automatically switches ON when the night falls and turns OFF when the sun rises. In fact you can this circuit for implementing any type of automatic night light. The circuit uses a Light Dependent Resistor (LDR) to sense the light .When there is light the resistance of LDR will be low. So the voltage drop across POT R2 will be high.This keeps the transistor Q1 ON....

A Simple Light activated switch Description. This is the circuit diagram of a light activated switch based on National Semiconductors comparator IC LM 311 and a LDR. The circuit is based on a voltage comparator circuit wired around IC 1.The non inverting in put of IC1 is given with a reference voltage of 6V using resistors R3 and R4. The input to the inverting input will be the voltage across the LDR that is light dependent. At darkness the...
