BasicPCB Customer Projects – Spectrum Mouse Trap

BasicPCB customer shares printed circuit board project: Spectrum Mouse Trap

[Original Image & Post Source]

Spectrum is an electronic mouse trap designed and built for EE90, an analog circuits project class at Caltech. The trap uses photodiodes to sense when I mouse is on the trap. IR LEDs illuminate the photodiodes, and when a mouse steps on the trap and blocks the light the trap triggers. A latching relay holds the trap in the triggered state until it’s manually reset.

When triggered, a solenoid fires and raises a curtain around the base to trap the mouse. Two LEDs connected to an astable multivibrator at the top blink when the trap is triggered. The PCBs were printed by a manufacturer called BasicPCB. Continue reading “BasicPCB Customer Projects – Spectrum Mouse Trap”

Printed circuit board manufacturing in USA

♥ Support this Project: Coming soon to Kickstarter

The deltaK indicates temperature in real-time using a continuous tone whose pitch varies according to the current temperature being scanned versus the starting point of the scan. This makes it very easy to scan a circuit board for hot parts (or cold parts!). The closer you get to the board and the smaller the motions you make the tighter the precision gets. Its also very sensitive to temperature and can even locate studs in a wall based on the slight temperature difference, in some situations.
