Plus it doesn't cool off the tip
Great advice. Really explains the wattage vs tip temp issue clearly. Many kit instructions confuse this for the beginner.
I know this is an old project but I have a few questions if you could help.I take it this would work like a momentary contact switch. Seems like the 1microFarad capacitor would generate a .2 sec pulse. If I wanted 1 second would I substitute a 50uF? Also what is the 10uF at the far left of the diagram for? What I'm trying to do is use an IR remote to trip the reset or poweron pin to a builder board like an aurdino, R3, CHIP, etc.Thanks in advance for any helpBOB
