Let's use BOSON to make an electronic candle. What is an electronic candle?

1. Sensitive to a certain intensity of light to light electronic candles;

2. When the light is weak and the induction of a certain intensity of the sound, the electronic candle goes out.

Electronic candles are so magical. However, how to make an electronic candles with BOSON modules? Let's take a look at the wiring diagram of the BOSON modules.

More details about Boson.

Step 1: Connect the Light Sensor and the Logic Module "OR"

1) Please find out all the BOSON modules we need.

The first step is to connect the light sensor and the logic module "OR".

It should be noted that the logic module interface and the interface of the splitter module is divided into input and output ports. The light sensor is connected to an input port of the logic module ”OR”.

Step 2: Connect the Logic Module "OR" Output Ports to an Input of the Main Board

Step 3: 4) Connect the Corresponding Output Port on the Main Board to the Input Port of the Splitter Module

Step 4: Connect One of the Output Ports on the Splitter Module to the Multicolor String Light

Step 5: Connect the Sound Sensor and the Input Ports of Threshold Module

The role of the threshold module is to adjust the intensity of the sound required for the electronic candle to extinguish.

Step 6: Connect the Line

1) Next, two lines are required, one for connecting the threshold module to the input port of the logical module “NOT”; the other for connecting the output port of the logical module “NOT” to an input ports of the logical module “AND”.

Step 7: Connect the Output Ports to the Input

Need a long wire. Connect the output ports of the logical module “AND” to the input port of the logical module “OR”.

Step 8: Onnect the Logic Module “AND” to the Splitter Module

Step 9: Install the Battery, and Switch the Switch to "ON" State

Well, install the battery, and switch the switch to "ON" state. Test whether it can realize the effect of electronic candles.

Step 10: Build the Shape of an Electronic Candle

Design a nice look for an electronic candle.

Hide some wires and make it cleaner.

A complete electronic candle is done. You can also add some decorations to make it more beautiful.
