When an attempt is made to rob a car, the watchdog device will warn the owner with a short, intermittent sound signal.

After turning on the autoguard, the car owner has six seconds to get out of the car and close the door. If after that, for some reason, the car body sways, the device will work and after 6 seconds. will give an intermittent sound signal with a repetition rate of 3 Hz and a duration of 12 ... 15 seconds.

So that the signal is not a surprise for the owner, the device gives a short (0,1 sec) warning signal at the time of operation.

The electrical circuit diagram is shown in Fig.1.

Fig.1 (click to enlarge)

The displacement sensor consists of a coil L1 and a magnet suspended above it on a soft spring. To reduce the decay time of the pendulum oscillations, it is necessary to tie a thread 3-4 cm long to the magnet.

The ratio of the resistances R1 and R2 is chosen so that the voltage at pin 1 of the DD1 chip corresponds to the log "0" level.

The filter on the elements VD1, R5, R6 passes to the input 1, DD1 pulses with a duration of more than 50 ms.

When the device is turned on, capacitors C4 and C67 are discharged. At the output of element 10 DD1.3 there is a high level that charges C4. After 6 sec. C4 will charge, allowing the trigger DD1.1, DD1.2 to work. If a pulse is received at input 1 of element DD1.1, the trigger will work and a low-level signal will appear at the output of element 3 DD1.1, which will go through C5 to input 13 DD1.4 and the device will give a short beep. In this case, a high-level signal from pin 4 DD1.2 after 6 seconds. will charge the capacitor C6, allowing the operation of the 3 Hz frequency generator.

The ratio of the values ​​​​of resistors R10 and R9 is chosen so that the running generator discharges C4, then a low level appears at the output 4 of the trigger, which discharges C6 and stops the generator. After a while, C4 will charge again and the device will go into standby mode.

To establish the device, it is necessary to disconnect the control electrode of the thyristor and apply 12 V power to the circuit. The voltage at pin 6 of the DA1 microcircuit should not differ from the voltage at point A by more than 0,5 V. Otherwise, you will have to choose DA1 with more accurate balancing.

Most operational amplifiers for 140UD1408 work stably in this circuit with a significant change in external temperature and supply voltage. But if it is still not possible to achieve good balancing, a capacitor with a capacity of at least 100 microfarads should be placed in the gap at point A. If the voltage at terminal 6 is greater than at point A, then the positive terminal of the capacitor is connected to resistor R3. Beli less, then vice versa.

The duration of the sound signal depends on the value of the resistor R9, it can be 12 ... 15 seconds.

The flexibility and shape of the spring is selected with the oscillation frequency of the magnet - about 5 Hz. And the thickness of the damping thread is chosen so that the vibrations completely stop after a few seconds. After that, by changing the distance between the magnet and the coil, the required sensitivity of the sensor is set.

The device is connected according to the scheme in Fig.2.

auto guard

The connection is made with just two wires, parallel to the horn button.

At the same time, it must be remembered that the autoguard only works with a car signal (with a breaker on the membrane).

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 ... >>

MRI images become clearer 27.03.2021

Physicists have been able to increase the resolution of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images by changing the geometry of the dipoles inside the magnetic coil. The method allows to improve image clarity without changing the characteristics of the MRI machine.

MRI allows you to study the internal organs without surgery and without the use of ionizing radiation that is dangerous for the body, as is the case with x-ray tomography. At the same time, MRI also has disadvantages - firstly, the devices for magnetic resonance imaging are extremely expensive, and secondly, the accuracy of the images they produce is not always high.

The principle of operation of MRI is based on a radio frequency magnetic field that interacts with hydrogen nuclei. To create a field, phased antenna arrays are used, the elements of which can be dipole antennas. During operation, a connection is formed between the active dipoles, which reduces the efficiency of the entire coil. To prevent this, additional passive dipoles are used. But the latter can spoil the quality of the picture.

ITMO specialists managed to change the geometry of the dipoles to improve the resolution of MRI. To do this, the scientists arranged the passive elements perpendicular to the active ones. In addition, physicists placed a passive element at the end of the array to provide a strong electrical connection between the dipoles. The effectiveness of the result obtained was verified using computer simulation, as well as experimentally.
