Introduction: Propeller Clock

Hi Friends,

now the propeller clock available make using 8051 controller family.

The 8051 controller is generally used in college project so u can make your own propeller using 8051,

for this propeller u required 1200RPM motor for drive it other thing for that power supply for running circuit u just make it by concept of any DC MOTOR brush supply.

Step 1: 8051

The 8051 is the 40 pin microcontroller IC which is used for this project

Step 2: Propeller Clock Circuit on Universal PCB

I have made it on universal PCB and other connection direct drag and connect with the LED's. This project suggest me Anupam Dubey to make this amazing project.

Step 3: Circuit Diagrame

The circuit diagram of this circuit is given here in Propeller Clock PDF file so download it for schematic diagram.

Step 4: PCB Layout

I have made it PCB layout in Dip Trace PCB designer software. And it given here my propeller clock PCB layout, but for my project i made circuit on universal PCB, i just upload it PCB if any one want to make it on designed PCB then can make it easily fron that PCB design. And this design for 8051 only

Step 5: Programming

Programming and its hex file given here so you can directly burn your 8051controller ic using suitable ISP/loader. I used for programming Keil Programmer and for burn ic I used Flash Magic loader, for that you can use the

mikroC PRO for 8051 for programming and its flash burner also available with its setup file.

Step 6: POV Propeller Massage Display Using Atmega16

Now I've made my new POV propeller display using atmega16, you can also make it using atmega8 for more cheaper and easy and compact.

Step 7: Circuit and Coding

Step 8: Method for Codding Your Massage

In POV Massage display generally two type of circuit can build, one was Active High and other was Active Low.

As we know about this concept so active high circuit make LED on when that gives logic "1", and active Low circuits make LED on when logic "0" is applied. So as far that concept here figure given for make your own code for your massage.

Step 9: Source Code of All Word for All Active High Condition

This source file providing for writing any name any sign in POV propeller display.

NOTE:-

This code for ACTIVE HIGH circuit only if your POV display you made in active high mode then simply past this code for all word and any provided sign in PDF.

i have implemented the ckt but as output i am getting only 8 concentric circles ( 8 LED's) not the time . I am not able to find the faults . The ckt not showing the time . Now what I have to do? Plz tell me. Plz reply me fast as fast as u can.

Bro.. I have made this project.. It's really cool and interesting. However I am having a problem. While I am connecting the vcc of the microcontroller and led to the 9volt battery with the help of connectors.. Everytime I am getting different output. Sometime all leds are glowing, while sometime the output is coming properly.. It's really frustrating. Few times, I have to connect the connector to 9 volt battery like 20-30 times just to get the proper output.. And then it comes.. Can you please help me.. what should I do..?

the project is very well explained with proper pictures and documents attached. but, i was confused about the role of 8051 MC in the circuit.

why is 8051 used? what's the difference between 8051 and atmega6?

author
Brijesh Sondarva made it! (author)Brijesh Sondarva2017-03-20

both are controller IC just its from different family 8051 is another family controller and Atmega16 is AVR family controller and program hex file saving ROM is different in both of this. :)

IT's depends on which format you have choose, means that your design circuit is active high based or active low based, your name design code depends on it no doubt i can give you but I have all ready post all code designing format for all so you can also design your own name code based on active low or high :)

And if u use studio4 then set winavr .gcc file it easy for generate hex file for u

Hey Bro! I humbly apologize to you. I should not have been that rude. I am really sorry yaar. Can we talk? I am in Punjab and I am working as an Embedded Systems Trainer. And I want to make a propeller clock for my self-satisfaction, as you should make yourself first then make your students do it. I am a little confused. I have made several propeller displays and i am an expert at it,. But I have never used an IR sensor and never made a clock. SO i need a little of your help buddy.

Can we talk? I just need your suggestions and I guess rather than chatting it will be better to talk. Please tell me if we could talk?

Thanks in advance!

Hehehe. Bro I don't know if you will believe or not. But I am not on available on any social media. I made an account on FB when I was working in Delhi but never used it. But I will have to use it now I guess. I don't use WhatsApp as well. Please tell me how to find you on FB when you have sometime. But only after four pm then I am somewhat free after classes. So I will be able to talk. You can mail me at darpananeja@yahoo.in. It will be very nice t discuss things with you.

I designed a simple circuit using pic16f84a and when operated circuit numbers were everywhere you could be the problem of programming or ir led

author
Brijesh Sondarva made it! (author)Brijesh Sondarva2016-02-20

sorry but still i not worked on PIC controller otherwise i can tell you what should problem in Codding format, and im sore the problem was in speed of rotating your circuit, because when im designed POV massage display same problem occurred and i displayed all word separate and anywhere or print continue my name word without spacing and any fixed format then i changed in my speed delay logic and problem was solved and i made POV without IR just using simple speed managing logic.
So your problem might be in speed so check speed of rotating or set speed delay logic. :)

Hello Can you tell me why is used ir led in the circuit please

author
Brijesh Sondarva made it! (author)Brijesh Sondarva2016-02-20

in 8051mc i used IR for interrupt and Led triggering, if you know the normal working about our home appliances how work with ir remote control same working here when ir come front of PD its sense and leds on working.
and in atmega controller i not used ir i just setup delay logic for print characters.

sir, i want to make propeller clock but my teacher asked me to use PIC microcontroller insted of 8051.... what do i do now? which one should i prefer?

author
Brijesh Sondarva made it! (author)Brijesh Sondarva2016-02-01

its depend on your coding skill and circuitry, both controllers having its own different properties if you have already experience on 8051 then I like to suggest you to now try with PIC, because you learn more experience using different controller and its property and coding techniques and you'll get more brief idea on different controllers.

DARPANA made it! (author)2016-01-14

Bhai Saab? I would suggest you to assure yourself first that if it is based on 8051 or AVR? Because the schematic shows ATMEGA16. And the code that you have shown requires the microcontroller to be interrupted externally at the INTO pin and the schematic again shows nothing about that. I think you need a lot of homework before coming into this cyber world where you will face every kind person and some of them will be experts as well. Please dont misguide people and dont put a spot on the name of INSTRUCTABLES. If you know what i mean then remove this project from this site and dont insult yourself like this. And I would firmly advice everyone that please dont follow this instructable because it wont borne anything and this would not work because the one who has posted doesnt even know about it.

my Dear Friend first of all please read carefully all instructions and details about this Propeller and if you know about 8051 and AVR then please try to understood which circuit, PCBs and codes for which controller and then go forward. And i like to thanks to you and for your Opinions and I like to say you that I have all ready worked 1.5 year on my Propeller projects.
Thank you.

Goodmorning sir,

This is the way i put the photodiode and IR led. i'm not sure if it's ok or not.... could you please check it for me? thank you!!!

Brijesh Sondarva made it! (author)Brijesh Sondarva2015-12-18

No this is not right way to connect your IR led front of PD you should take IR externally like a IR pen or your TV remort that used for triggering like that you put your IR front of PD.
