Now, for the instructions this is all about......
Note: This was made after this was built so excuse the average photos and steps.
Step 1: Materials and tools needed
1.) A light-up exit sign
2.) 4 red 5mm LED's
3.) Small PC bread board
4.) 9v battery clip
5.) 9v battery
6.) ON-OFF switch
7.) Wires( I got mine from CAT- 5 cables)
8.) Resistor (unknown type)
1.) Soldering iron
3.) Screwdriver and pliers
Step 2: Opening the sign
Step 3: Creating the circuit
I set up a pretty simple LED, resistor, and switch series circuit. To make this, you solder the the 4 LED's together. Make sure to test the LED's and check polarity before soldering.
Note: the resistor can be different depending on what you have.
This is the schematic.
Step 4: Assembly part 1
Step 5: Assembly part 2
After attaching the circuit with a preferred method, Connect the battery and switch if you haven't already.
Step 6: Finally
You now have your own personal exit sign for your room, your dorm, or any other anything else.
If you have any comments or questions, I'll be glad to answer.
