Introduction: AUTOMATIC NIGHT LAMP

Picture of AUTOMATIC NIGHT LAMP

Hi ,

In this project i am going to make an automated night lamp model using basic electronic parts which runs on a 9v battery.It works on the lethargy of light falling on the LDR(light dependent resistor).When there is no light the LED will glow at it's maximum and the brightness of LED decreases with the decreasing surrounding luminosity of light.

Step 1: THING YOU'LL NEED

Picture of THING YOU'LL NEED

1.BC 507 TRANSISTOR

2.10K POTENTIOMETER

3.9V BATTERY

4.AN LED

5.RELAY

6.1 K RESISTOR

7.LIGHT DEPENDENT RESISTOR

8.SWITCH(OPTIONAL)

Step 2: DESIGNING THE MODEL

Picture of DESIGNING THE MODEL

The Night lamp circuit model is given above. Here the potentiometer can be adjusted to control the sensitivity of the LDR.

This circuit can be used to make portable table lamp as shown above(USING ALTOIDS)

NB: I used a 3v button cell to light up the LED to fit inside the ALTOIDS

I can't find BC507 so i used BC547 but it does not work. Any suggestion?

In my opinion, both of the transistor will work fine.


Good luck with your project!!

I tried both breadboard and ARES but it is not working. Here is the schematic for my circuit. Do you see any problem? Thanks.

I WANT TO MAKE AUTOMATIC NIGHT LAMP FOR HOME

SO PLEASE HELP ME TO DESIGN FOR 220V

Hi kapil,

I am glad to know that you're gonna make an automated night lamp for home. You can go to this link to find out more about it, I found this useful

Good Job ;)

You can also put or add LEDs on one of the sides so it can be also as a hand-held torch .

Thank you for your comment.

I am happy to know your suggestion :)

I would use a power mosfet instead of a relay, and if you use a relay add a flyback diode
