Hf or rf welder

I have some flexible clear vinyl that I've been trying to figure out how to infuse together for a project I want to make.  I've been successful with vinyl glue (after much tests with different glues and epoxies). However chemical bonding can become expensive.  Ive tried many experiments with melting the vinyl together with soldering irons. Either the bond is not strong enough or it melts through, or it weakens the material too much.  I'd be really interested to see someone make an rf or hf welder that is capable of welding heavy gauge vinyl.  Cheers!

How to make RF remote?

I was given a Clapper for my birthday... anyways, it came with a remote that uses Radio Frequency to turn on stuff. I want to know how to make my own circuit, any suggestions? I only want to control one thing, so the transmitter doesn't have to send too complex a signal and the receiver won't have to decipher much. All I need to know is HOW to send it. THANKS!

Power LED from RF? Answered

I have a maybe somewhat unusual question.There is a super simple circuit that enables an LED to be powered by ringing mobile phone. Can be found at What I would like to do is to power LED but from a distance, preferably Radio Stations of (if possible) power lines. LED does not have to be constantly on or bright, it can "blink". I was looking at Joule Thief and combining it with capacitor ... The point is that there should be no battery. Is such a thing possible?

Basic RF control transmission

My goal is to press a button on my transmitter side and have the receiver flip a relay - that's all.  It's probably the simplest possible use of RF technology...  and it's almost impossible to work out on google.  I am trying to transmit and receive just a simple control signal about a range of 300m, so dismantling 27Mhz toy cars is not an option.   Has anyone successfully made a simple RF circuit before? I can buy a 433Mhz transmitter with this range, but they take FSK or ASK modulated signals.  From what i can tell, there is nothing simpler than the 'OOK' version of ASK modulation for transmitting signals.  If I'm wrong, please correct me.  Otherwise, if I'm stuck with FSK or ASK.  I found one site (bottom of PDF: providing a simple circuit to produce FSK.  I was hoping for something simpler, but if you think this is the easiest way, i'll give it a shot. Can someone guide me towards the correct ICs and circuits to create this project? Thanks in advance for your help

Customising an RF remote control

Hello all. I hope this finds you well. I would like to know whether there is a simple way to convert my existing RF remote control (bought from Maplin, UK, for controlling included mains plug adapters) to use physically different buttons for switching things on and off.  The idea is that I'd like to - neatly, if possible - mount the new buttons onto a flat surface: a table top, for example. Could anyone advise whether this is doable without dedicating more than a day or two to it, and how; or if I should should look for an alternative way around the problem? Many thanks indeed, James

RF remote Microcontroller etc?

So I found this remote control deal For the past few months I've bounced around the idea of using a hacked remote to turn the lights in my room on and off. This, however, makes hacking stuff a non issue. However, I still don't know how to make the remote communicate with a microcontroller. The one I linked appears to have an antenna, which is undesirable, but could become an option if nothing else. I also would like to see if I can find a similar control that uses infrared. Right, so, Basically I want a remote that sends a single signal to some kind of Microcontroller. When this signal is received, I want the microcontroller to emit a single pulse to toggle a latching relay to turn my lights on and off. Where should I look to find ideas or buy parts? I already have an Arduino, but I think I'd rather build a knockoff for a permanent circuit. So thanks in advance.

Better RF Mouse Range

Hello. I got a Wireless Mouse that still working fine.The signal between the Mouse and its receiver is not so great, about half meter, and it stop responding. So I took apart the Mouse and its Receiver. The antenna of the Mouse is kind of steal (I think but its color) and the one of the receiver is coil of very thing copper about 3/4 turns around a piece of plastic. So as said I would like to increase the signal between both, for better rang. What I have found around the best material is copper, so here is my issue. Is it better to modify the antenna of the Mouse or its receiver?? Should I rather use thicker Copper Wire and do few spinning around a piece of plastic, or use a thinner Copper Wire and do a lot of spin around a piece of plastic. So what better for a strong signal: - thicker wire and less spinning or - thinner Wire and more spinningThanx for those that would give a some advise/recommendations. I am will upload pictures later when possible. PS: I manage to add to it a Switch to turn off the mouse to extend battery Life.

RF antenna wiring (Possible error)?

For our truck scale, we have small remotes to automatically record the weights. The remotes just do not have the range that they should be getting (Sometimes we have to actually touch the antennas with the remotes). Before I ask my questions, let me explain how they are wired up. There are 16 remotes going to 16 channels in the controller box, The first set of 8 are on one receiver/antenna and the second set is just a copy of the first set. The antennas are just a small whip type antenna connected to the center conductor of the coax, there are then 4 more of those wires pointing down, these ones are connected to the shielding on the coax. There is a 75ft RG6 coax cable running to each of those antennas, This cable runs into the scale shack and connects to the f-type jacks on the controller box. Inside the box, there is a short piece of shielded wire going from the coax jack into the rf receiver. Here is where it gets weird, The center conductor AND the shield both are attached to a single screw terminal on the rf receiver. If my thinking is correct then this basically turning the coax cable itself into the antenna, Am I correct? Why would it be installed like this, Was it a bad installer? How should this be done for optimum performance? Thanks, Kade

RF transmitted power Legality / Codes. Answered

I'd like to power some LED devices "remotely" using transmitted power. I've seen there are Instructables related to this I'd like to create a power source that could energize a small LED circuit at a maximum distance of ~3 meters.  Even better, build an adaptive control, ensuring additional circuits are adequately powered, but design-limited to a safety max. My concern is to ensure the power source conforms to applicable United States regulations / codes.  I have a background in physics, but no experience in electrical engineering or contracting.  So I really don't know where to begin translating theory into device.  Can anyone suggest advice / guidance / starting references : What is the legality in the United states? Are there any codes that apply / regulate transmitted power? Pro tips? Muchas gracias for guidance and suggestions! CarLoz

RF Module signal is too weak

Hello everyone! I am trying to build an arduino RF remote control to clone my remote control for my wireless sockets. I bought this RF module from ebay;=item20cb2af2a8 At first I thought it was damaged because I wasn't getting any signal from the reciever. After many tries I touched the reciever with the remote and suddenly I got the codes (I want to recieve the codes, save them and then re-transmit them with the arduino). The same goes with the transmitter - the only way it works is when I hold it against my wireless socket. It means that the codes work but the signal is way too weak. I tried hooking it up to different power sources- Arduino 5V, Arduino 3V, 12V 1000mA Adapter, and the original battery of the remote that states 12V 23A. I tried making an antenna but nothing really works.. please help! thank you..

The best way to boost an RF transmitter?

Hi all, Here I have a small and simple FM transmitter based on a simple transistor oscillator, however, due its simplicity, is weak for my needs: I need to transmit the signal to a distance of about 33 feet. Notice that I will use the transmitter in a rural location and around the building there are no other houses, so I will avoid the risk to cause interferences to other people. Well, so I was thinking to implement an amplification stage, after the transmitter, and I ended up with the following schematic: On the base of Q1 I have a female jack where i get the audio signal from an MP3 player. However I have some doubts about resistors values for the amp stage: these values seems too much great to me: I get the Transistor values (BFR36) from the datasheet: and I calculated the values here (choosing "desing given emitter voltage") The power supply, as shown in the schematic will be equal to 12 V DC. But as I've said I'm not very convinced of resistors values for the amp stage, which seems too much greats. On the other hand, due to the fact that the amp stage is an emitter follower, it will just amplify the current and not the voltage: would be able to give a decent boost on the signal output? What I can expect? Thanks.

RF Transmitting Shock Alarm Clock

I thought of an idea awhile back but I lack the "know how" to pull it off. I've been trying to teach myself some basic electrical and computer engineering but i'm still not learning what i need to know in order to finish my project. as stated in the Title, i'm trying to build an alarm clock that wakes up its subject with a jolt of electricity rather then noise, vibrations or anything else. the concept is to incorporate a miniaturized TENS unit (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) into an arm band or ankle bracelet sort of thing but comfortable. then when it is time to wake up the alarm clock then sends a signal to the arm/ankle band thus making it active. then to turn it off you would hit the off switch on the alarm clock not the band.  that is the extent of my crude invention, however i am having trouble with the transmitting part. what would i need to make this happen?? i was thinking of using an old car remote for some of the parts and using the overall idea of it in my alarm clock except i need a transmitter and receiver and i have NO idea how any of that works. thoughts? ideas? please let me know

Range finder using RF and an arduino?

One of the projects I've been spit-balling for a very long time requires me to be able to build some sort of range finder (if I'm using the correct term). Basically, I would like to create a "finder" unit and a "hider" unit[s]. My thought would be to us RF of some sort, so the "hider" unit will spit out a certain frequency, that the "finder" will pick up and react to (in this case, speed up the blinking of some LED's and turn some servo's to set levels). This doesn't need to be exact. So long as I can detect a decent range so I have a cold, warm, warmer, and on fire points to use, it'll do the desired deed. Price is another factor, as I would like to keep this around the ballpark of $30 per unit.  Thanks in advance!!

PROBLEM 1. Is it possible to only use 1 transmitter and receiver? 2. Just in case for future uses, can compass be implanted in this device where it will always shows to the transmitter? 3. Currently programming are very hard for me, where can i get reference for programming this kind of device?

An Transmitted RF-powered LED WARNING light?

The Situation: I am a disabled Veteran with too much time to fill.  So, I volunteer at the Sheriff's Office doing light clerical work and a little target shooting, but my first love is HAM radio.  It is a GREAT hobby!  It is not without its hazards, though.  My main transmitting antenna is a ground-mounted vertical in the back yard.  We have six children with four still at home and while my kids know to NEVER touch my antennas due to the danger of electrical shock and nasty RF burns, their friends in the neighborhood may not fully comprehend the hazard. The Challenge (if you choose to accept it): So, what I'd like to do is to have a circuit out on the post supporting the antenna that would light LEDs, (preferably, four), whenever I key the mike - AND - have the entire circuit use the power from my own transmission... no power supply or batteries!   It would also simply be a cool thing to have! The Specs: This is a vertical for the HF bands, from 7MHz to 30MHz and I typically transmit at 100 watts.  The circuit would be at a distance of no more than six inches from the active element.  I have seen crystal radio circuits in the past that used received RF to power a LED but don't remember where.
