At a supply voltage of 12...14 V, the device consumes a current of no more than 180 μA from the battery in standby mode.

The scheme of the autoguard is shown in fig. 1. After turning on the power with the SA1 toggle switch, voltage is supplied to the watchdog nodes and the slow charging of the capacitor C6 through the resistor R11 begins. At this time, the output of the inverter DD1.4 is low, the capacitors C3 and C4 are discharged. There is a time delay during which the owner of the car can leave the passenger compartment and close the door behind him. After a period of time equal to = 0,7 * R11 * C6 (time is in seconds, if the resistance is in megaohms, and the capacitance is in microfarads), a high level will be set at the output of the DD1.4 inverter and the watchman will go into standby mode.

If you now open the trunk lid or the hood, the contacts SF1 or SF2 will close, a high level will appear at the output of the inverter DD1.1 and the capacitor C4 will start charging through the resistor R6 and the diode VD5, as well as the capacitor C3 through the diode VD8. Turning on the ignition will also charge these capacitors; this will open the transistor VT1, providing a low level at the input of the inverter DD1.1.

After a short time, the capacitors C3 and C4 will be charged and the output of the inverter DD1.3 will go low. With the pulse repetition rate of the generator (1 ... 2 Hz), the transistor VT2 begins to open, switching the car horn relay circuit. Audible alarms are heard, which repeat for a time of about 0,7*R9*SZ. After that, the watchman switches back to standby mode.

With the hood or trunk open, with the ignition on, alarm signals are given until either the watchman is de-energized by the SA1 toggle switch, or the hood, trunk lid are closed and the ignition is turned off.

If the door of the passenger compartment of the car is opened in the standby mode, the capacitor C0,7 will quickly charge, and after a time of 10 * R4 * C7 (usually 12 ... 4 s) and the capacitor CXNUMX. During this period of time, the watchman must be turned off, otherwise an alarm will sound. All time delays can be changed by appropriate selection of the values ​​of the timing circuits.

The C2R14VD10C7 node is used to smooth out voltage surges in the on-board network that exceed 15 V and to protect against interference. Diode VD1 protects the transistor VT2 from self-induction voltage surges that may occur on the winding of the horn relay. The diode is soldered to the terminals of this relay.

The details of the guard are mounted on a printed circuit board made of foil fiberglass with a thickness of 1,5 mm. The board drawing is shown in fig. 2. The device uses resistors MLT, S2-33. Capacitors K50-16, K50-35 (oxide), KM-6, K73-17 (others). The use of oxide capacitors K50-6 is highly undesirable due to their high leakage current and too little reliability.

Diodes VD2, VD4-VD9 can be any silicon; VD3 - any one that can withstand a direct current of at least 0,3 A (for example, from the KD208, KD209 series). Diode VD1 is better to choose a pulse from the series KD521, KD522. Instead of KT3102EM, any transistor from the KT3102, KT342 series or KT315B, KT315G, KT315E transistors can be used in the watchdog; instead of KT829A - any of the KT829, KT972 series or a composite of KT315 and KT817 with any letter indices.

Chip K561LN2 can be replaced by KR1561LN2 or 564LN2 with some board correction. As an extreme case, you can use two K176LA7 microcircuits, but you will have to seriously change the pattern of printed conductors on the board, and also replace the KS215Zh zener diode with another one, for a voltage of 8 ... parallel.

The points on the board, numbered from 1 to 8, are connected by wires to the corresponding pins of the X1 connector. Connector X1 - MPN-8-1 or another with the required number of contacts.

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 ... >>

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 ... >>

Prompter cures stuttering 08.04.2004

Employees of the University of East Carolina (USA) have patented a way to get rid of stuttering.

It has long been known that the speech of a stutterer becomes smooth if he speaks with someone together, in a duet. A device like a hearing aid (there are models that fit in the ear canal or behind the ear) perceives the speech of its owner and, having slightly changed the frequency characteristics, produces the same sound with an adjustable delay of 25-100 milliseconds directly to the eardrum.

The success rate of correcting a speech defect ranges from 50 to 95 percent.
