Product details

Mindsets Stroboscope Solder Kit

• Grab attention or get into the party mood with this dual white LED
• Adjust the flashing pace between 1.5Hz and 20Hz
• Simple and fun to solder with 16 parts
• Requires one 9V (PP3) battery (not included, Order Code L46AL)

What can I do with this kit?
Add warning lights to a model or add to a party atmosphere with this stroboscope. You can use the potentiometer to set the flashing rate between 1.5-20 Hz. The two white LEDs flash together – and you can use them to make people appear to be moving in slow motion or even see objects seem to run backwards. With just 16 parts, this is a great kit to get into electronics.

What can I learn from this kit?
Practise soldering and learn about electronics and circuits with this stroboscope kit – which uses resistors, capacitors, transistors, LEDs and a potentiometer (variable resistor). Learn how they are connected in a circuit and get practical experience in soldering them. The circuit uses a 555 timer chip to alternate the LEDs on and off and a variable resistor to vary the frequency. This kit requires a soldering iron and solder and may require wire cutters.

How easy is this kit to solder?
This is a great kit for beginners and those looking to practise their soldering. Once you’ve created the stroboscope you can add an enclosure (not included) to protect your circuit – taking care not to block the LEDs, switch and potentiometer. The kit comes with a 9V battery box and requires a 9V (PP3) battery (Order Code L46AL).
