Note: this product is supplied in kit form and requires soldering .
A unique system for incorporating remote control into practically any project. The basic pack comprises a transmitter handset and receiver board offering six on/off channels and 2 analogue channels. Another key feature on the receiver is that it has an in-built output stage capable of sourcing nearly one amp per channel. Motors, lamps and buzzers etc. can simply be wired directly to the receiver’s outputs. This eliminates the need for additional output boards – and importantly, the problem of electrical noise from the motors causing the receiver to malfunction
In summary, the system offers:
- 6 digital on/off channels
- 2 analogue channels – each with 56 power levels
- Outputs use the driver IC ULN2803A and can supply up to 500mA each
- Direct wiring of output devices to receiver
- Use of additional power supply for outputs if required
- High noise immunity
- LED ‘flags’ on the receiver showing status of channels
- Compact size
- A separate power supply can be used with the driver chip if a higher voltage is required (up to 50V).
- Comes with a universal IR remote control
- Receiver board requires 3xAA batteries
- Remote control requires 3xAAA batteries
Full instructions are supplied with this pack.
Insert 3xAA batteries into the battery box connected to the receiver board. Insert 3xAAA batteries into the remote control.
Outputs 1 and 2 are the analogue outputs (PWM). They can be adjusted using the Volume and Program controls on the IR remote.
Buttons 1 and 2 on the remote toggle the analogue outputs between fully on and fully off.
Outputs 3 to 8 are the digital outputs. Buttons 3 to 8 on the remote control toggle the state of each output when pressed.
To connect the separate driver power, it is very important that you first remove the jumper header from JP1 (this disconnects the 4.5V power from the driver chip), and connect the power supply to the two pads labelled EXT (observing polarity).
