The system is designed for radio control of 15 loads, at a frequency of 433,92 MHz at a short distance, if desired, transmitters of higher power can be used, thereby increasing the transmission range. It can be used in systems such as smart home, controlled home or car alarm, as well as remote control of high voltage loads. For example, you can build 1 receiver and two or more transmitters tuned to the same frequency, it is not necessary to use all 15 buttons in the transmitter, for example, only 5 buttons can be wired.

The design has a number of advantages

  1. small dimensions
  2. no SAW resonators
  3. stable operation due to the use of superheterodyne receiver
  4. ease of setup
  5. free firmware

The encoder and decoder board can be used with other types of receivers and transmitters. For a receiver on the MAX1473, the transmitter must radiate at 423,2 MHz.

The receiving part (Fig. 1) consists of (MAX1473 receiver + ATMEGA8 command decoder).

The decoder works in two modes

1) When you press button 1 on the encoder, load 1 is turned on, pressing it again will turn it off.

2) pressed button 1, load 1 turned on for half a second, then turned off. Mode switching is carried out by jumper J1, if there is no jumper J1, it works in mode No. 1, and when the jumper is set, then mode No. 2 works, but before that, the MK must be restarted.

Operating principle

The receiver is switched on according to a typical circuit, built on a MAX1473 chip, which is superheterodyne, can operate at frequencies of 315/433 MHz, in this circuit it is tuned to a frequency of 433,92 MHz. the local oscillator frequency is stabilized by quartz ZQ1 13,2256 MHz, in the microcircuit it is multiplied 32 times, F (local oscillator) = 13,2256x32 = 423,21 MHz. The frequency to which the receiver will be tuned \u423,21d F (local oscillator) + F (intermediate frequency) \u10,7d 433,92 + 2 \u1d ~ 1473 MHz, more precise tuning is carried out by selecting elements L1 and subscript capacitor C8. The RF signal received at the antenna is amplified and separated in the MAXXNUMX chip, a rectangular signal coming from the internal comparator is fed through the inverter (VTXNUMX) to the input of the command decoder (ATMEGAXNUMX), in which the transmitter command is decoded, then it switches the necessary loads.

The length of the antenna is approximately 3-10 cm.

The transmitting part consists of (MAX1479 transmitter + ATMEGA8L command encoder) fig. 2. The command is sent by pressing the SB1-SB15 buttons, the additional SB16 button is used to turn off all loads, the SB17 button is used to turn on all loads, The signal encoded by the microcontroller is fed through the inverter (VT1) to the input of the MAX1479 transmitter, which outputs a high-frequency amplitude-pulse signal to the antenna .

The transmitter is built on a special MAX1479 microcircuit, a low-power transmitter capable of operating at a frequency of 300-450 MHz, with amplitude-pulse modulation, the generation frequency is set by quartz with a frequency of 13,560 MHz, which is multiplied 32 times in the microcircuit, F (transmitter) \u13,560d 32x433,92 \u8d 2.7 .5.5 MHz. The encoder is built on the ATMEGAXNUMXL MK, in the L version, the MK is powered by a low voltage of XNUMX-XNUMXV.

All buttons are enabled in a matrix system, the lines of which are connected to diodes VD1-5, through them a signal is sent to the input of an external interrupt PD2, which causes the microcontroller to wake up from the reduced power consumption mode (Power-down). From pin 32 DD1, a signal is received that allows the transmitter power amplifier to work. A chain with an HL1 LED indicates the generation of a signal by the encoder.

The second version (Fig. 3) of the transmitter, built on a special MAX1472 chip, differs mainly in the size of the package, SOT23-8, i.e. 8 pins, it is easier to solder than MAX1479.

The length of the antenna is approximately 5-15 cm, a variant with a dipole is possible. The transmitter does not need basic configuration and works immediately.

The output power of the MAX1479/MAX1472 transmitters is 10 mW or less.

The transmitters are powered within 2.5-3.8 V (power, respectively), for example, 1 tablet for 3, or even better, a battery from a mobile phone / player, at 3.6 V.

Details of construction

The receiver and transmitter board can be made separately in the form of radio modules, decoders and power switches are also on separate boards. Mounting is mainly performed by surface mounting elements, resistors and capacitors in the 0805 package, transistors in the SOT-23 package.

The radio modules are mounted on a two-sided textolite glass, the lower foil serves as a common conductor, the connection to the upper layer is made through holes, by wiring.

The gap of the bottom foil from the edges of the board is somewhere around 1-3mm.

The transmitter board (1) must first be tinned with a thin layer of solder, the microcircuit must be precisely placed so that all the leads (4 sides) match, the MAX1479 is soldered with a blow dryer at a temperature of about 400 degrees, with a short supply of hot air, it is important not to fry! And follow the anti-static rules.

The MAX1472 chip can be soldered with a soldering iron with a thin tip, or also with a hair dryer.

Receiver coils - L1 is a half-turn wide 6mm and 6mm high, wire diameter 0.6-0.8mm,

L2 - in the form of a bracket 8 mm long, 4 mm high, wire diameter 0.6-0.8mm,

L3- 3 turns with a wire with a cross section of 0.2-0.35 mm, wind on a mandrel 2.5-3 mm, for example, on a rod from a pen or on a drill.

Transmitter coils L1 - 3 turns with a pitch of 1 mm with a wire with a cross section of 0.5-0.8 mm L2 4 turns with a diameter of 2.5-3 mm. It is desirable that the coils be made of silver-plated wire, you can use silver-plated terminals of C2-33 0.5-2W resistors, or the central core of a PK type cable.

In principle, the receiving module can be replaced with others designed to operate at a frequency of 433,92 MHz.

The encoder/decoder is mounted on a one-sided textolite glass. The transmitter and encoder board (5 commands) can be placed in a small-sized case in the form of a remote control, for example; G430A, housing for electronic equipment 90x50x16 mm.

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 ... >>

Shampost - compost after growing champignons 15.01.2021

Spanish scientists in a common project have developed a technology that allows you to recycle compost after growing champignon mushrooms.

In general, the compost for growing champignons has several components, in particular, straw, horse or bird droppings, etc. are added. It is watered and compacted. But the problem is that then this compost needs to be disposed of. They found a way out: compost utilization occurs through a biogas plant. The pilot project was launched in the Rioja region, which is mainly known for winemaking. But in fact, Rioja is also the largest region in Spain where champignons are grown.

In 2018, within the framework of a European project, a biogas plant was built, which produces the so-called "shampost" (two words - "champignon" and "compost" were put together). The recycling process began in September this year. Capacities - up to 100 thousand tons.

The production technology is quite simple: three containers are built at a 50 kW plant, the compost enters the container for hydrolysis, then it is cleaned of stones and other impurities, liquid digestate is added, then it goes into another container, where fermentation takes place, then the resulting gas is separated, the remains dried into granules. These granules are used for the production of natural organic fertilizers. They are used for growing vegetables in greenhouses and in the open field, as well as for other crops.

Europeans protested fertilizers in Serbia, where they showed their effectiveness.

Why in both circuits the "reset" leg of the atmega is not pulled up through a resistor to the power plus?
