Introduction: DIY LED TESTER
NOTE:- please vote me for LED CONTEST if you like this instructable .
Hi Friends .
How are you?
I hope you are fine!
Today in this instructable we are going to make a simple but very useful Diy project a SIMPLE LED TESTER.
Have you working with LED based project?
Yes of course we all are working with LED based projects, we need LEDs its a essential part of our project like LED cube , LED chaser Lights etc.... are some of the examples.
The reason i come up with this idea is yesterday i was just working with a LED based project for my college after completing the project i realized that some of the LEDs that iam using is already dead. My whole project gone to waste bin.
So , i come up with this idea to test my LEDs if it is work or not . this LED tester is simple to make, may take 5 minutes or less and its super cheap.
So, lets do this guys.
Step 1: COLLECT THE PARTS
Firstly we need to collect all the parts that we needed to do this project.
You doesn't need much parts to do this project . Its small and cheap components, even may it is already have in your hand if you are a maker.
Here Is The Parts You Need To Collect :
- 9volt Battery
- 9volt Battery connector
- 1k Resistor
- General purpose PCB(a small piece needed)
- Female Headers(two ports)
- Hookup wires
Other Tools Used In This Project :
- Soldering iron.
- Soldering Wire.
- Hot Glue / Instant Adhesive Glue.
I thinks that's all we needed.
After collecting all the parts lets jump to next step.
Step 2: SOLDERING THE COMPONENT
In this step we need to solder all the components on the PCB and connect each other. Take a look the schematics shown i above images and solder the components correctly.
After soldering all the components each other lets go to next step.
Step 3: GLUE THE BATTERY CONNECTOR
Now in this step we just need to glue the battery connector to the another side of the PCB. Use a hot glue gun or instant adhessive glue .
Take a look the above images and glue it perfectly.
Here i used a instant adhessive glue in this project.
Step 4: Done
Well that's all , we done. Now just take your LED and plug it in your DIY LED TESTER to check the led working or not.
Thanks guys !
