On the basis of only two cheap integrated timers of the type 555 (KR1006VI1), it is possible to assemble an inexpensive car anti-theft system. Its schematic diagram is shown in the figure.

car anti-theft system

Integral timer A gives the shutter speed necessary for the driver, getting into the car, to have time to turn off the anti-theft system. This eliminates the need for an external system switch. The thyristor prevents the timer B from tripping, except from the sensors-switches located at the vulnerable points of the machine.

Timer A performs a dual function - it provides an exposure time (it is approximately equal to 1,1 RaCa), sufficient not only for the driver, having turned on the anti-theft system, to get out of the car, but also for him, after getting into the car, managed to turn off the system. Thanks to this exposure time, it is eliminated the need to install a special switch outside the car, which is always inconvenient, not to mention the fact that an attacker can always find this switch. In this case, the toggle switch for turning the system on and off can be hidden somewhere behind the dashboard of the car.

When the system is turned off, timer B is started by the decay of the output pulse of timer A. When the system is turned on, the thyristor allows timer B to be started only by the operation of one of the sensors - grounding-type switches located at vulnerable points of the machine.

Improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells 14.06.2024

The latest solar technology research represents a significant breakthrough in improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells. This method, based on the use of pulsed light, offers promise for simplifying the production and expanding the applications of these cells. A research team from the Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology has developed an innovative method that uses pulsed light to improve the electrical conductivity of PbS solar cells. This method can significantly reduce the processing time required to achieve similar results. PbS quantum dot solar cells have significant potential in solar technology due to their photovoltaic properties. However, the formation of defects on their surface can reduce their performance. The new method helps suppress defect formation and improve electrical conductivity. Using strong light to complete the process ... >>

Magnetic Power Bank 5000mAh 14.06.2024

Huawei introduces a convenient and multifunctional charger to the market - Huawei SuperCharge All-in-One Magnetic Power Bank. This magnetic battery allows you to quickly and conveniently charge your Huawei phone anywhere, anytime.

The battery is compatible with various fast charging protocols such as SCP, UFCS and PD, making it ideal for a wide range of devices. The power bank is also compatible with Huawei phones that support wireless charging. ... >>

Changes in a father's brain after the birth of a child 13.06.2024

A recent study conducted by scientists from the Hefei Institute of Physical Sciences of the Chinese Academy of Sciences found interesting changes in the brains of men after becoming fathers. These changes were associated with involvement in child care, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Scientists found that men who became fathers experienced a loss of brain volume after giving birth. This volume loss was associated with greater involvement in parenting, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Researchers have found significant changes in men's brains between the prenatal and postnatal periods. In particular, there was a loss of gray matter volume, especially in parts of the brain responsible for higher functions such as language, memory, problem solving and decision making. Men who paid more attention to their children and spent more time with them lost more gray matter in their brains. This also affected their mental health ... >>

Milk in A4 format 04.08.2023

German food manufacturer Veganz has unveiled a unique development, Mililk technology, which includes 2D printed sheets that turn into oat milk.

The product is a square sheet of sweet shade, A4 size, which makes it convenient to send them through mailboxes. Each leaf is capable of producing 500 ml of delicious oat milk, and the €17,99 package includes enough sheets to make 10 liters of milk.

It is enough for the consumer to tear off the required number of sheets and mix them with water for one and a half minutes to get fresh oat milk.

Mililk leaves include oat powder, some water, coconut oil, chickpea isolate, vanillin, and gellan gum.

The manufacturer emphasizes that the production of milk in sheet format has a low ecological impact on the environment, as it avoids a large amount of waste. In addition, the consumer can prepare exactly as much milk as he needs at a certain point in time.

This format of oat milk is highly convenient for transportation, since water makes up 90% of the product. The Mililk packaging only includes a recyclable envelope, unlike the many Tetra Pak (common plant-based milk packaging) or cartons that are simply thrown away.
