DIY TiX Clock
Hi there, all the component values should be in the eagle schematic. The whole thing is powered through a 5v power supply
Hi there,yes it is powered via a normal 5v DC power supply. A USB charger will do the job and is the safest way to power your projects. All the light switch does is provide power to this supply.PLEASE BE CAREFUL if this is your first time with mains powered projects. Please use a commercially manufactured and fully encased supply.Mains voltage is lethal and will kill you if not treated with respect.I am a fully qualified electronics professional and have been working with mains powered devices for many years - even so I am still extremely careful and double check all connections and use earth leakage breakers.
Also did you use a PCB mount power supply to reduce the incoming voltage of 110V to be stepped down to 5VDC to feed the circuit?
Hi -Looks awesome.. Nice Job... Thanks for sharing.. Would you be able to tell me what resistors, capacitors, jumpers were connected on your board? This is the first time I am connecting a circuit to a 110V supply and so want to make sure it has all the right components.Regards,Pradhip.S
you are a true winner!
