Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Prepare the Case
In this project i´m going to use a plastic container, cut 2 tipes of wood for the sides of the case and glue then together, use small wood pieces to secure them to the case.
Step 2: Drill the Holes
Mark and cut the case to fit all the parts.
Step 3: Wiring
Just follow the schematic, in fact its very easy,just need to remove the small blue potentiometers from the module and reconect the wires to the bigger potentiometers, solder all the remaining components, put all the components inside the case and its nearly done.
Using the schematic:
1º-Power the DC Step-Down module using a transformer from 4 to 30 volt, connect the amp meter to the source "in" 2º-The yellow wire is pluged to the "out" positive side of the buck converter 3º-The remaining bigger black wire is conected to the "out" negative side, the the red is the output negative
Step 4: New Arrival !
While i was finishing this project i received 2 new precision potentiometers, you can use the normal ones but the with the precision potentiometers you have more precision to select the values that you want.
I cut the first and forth cable from the module and use only the other 2 cables for each potentiometer.
Step 5: Time to Test
A nice and easy project to do, i´m going to use it for simple electronic tests.
Tank you for watching ;)
