does my circuit need any resistors? Is the capacitor needed ?

Yes, Nice fat 100uF where the power enters your board, with a 100nF ceramic across that, also 100nF on the output of your voltage regulator

Thank you! I understand you suggest I put one on the input of the board and on the output of the voltage regulator. What does "with a 100nF ceramic across that" mean? Not being sarcastic but I want to make sure I understand what you mean. Thank you.

Put a 100 nF cap in parallel with the 100uF capacitor

Like this? Sorry I'm new to this.

mistake on diagram. how it really is

The blue wire is what triggers the relay from NO to NC. The regulator is an NTE960. I have not had any issues (running for 3 days) with not enough power or regulated power. I will incorporate. Made a mistake on the diagram. Here is how it really is...

By all means daystreams your ecoli incubator circuit aha is here

I do not understand the blue wire to the relay which needs a reactive diode across the coil.. Excluding the heater & relay, each component that uses power needs a filter cap 4.7uF tantalum or electrolytic and a 0.1uF disc or mylar as close as possible.. Especially both sides of the regulator..

More than likely.

Needs more polishing ICENG.



This occurs when there is no corresponding image supplied daystreams.
