• Create a running light effect with three flashing channels
• Connect up to two LEDs per channel for a maximum of six LEDs
• Easy and fun to solder with five parts
• Requires a 3-6V power supply (not included)What can I do with this kit?
Build a sequence of running lights from one flashing LED up to six, and run them in a light effect with this kit. The board has three output channels, and you can use as many or as few as you need. You will need an external 3-6V power supply to power this kit. At 3V you can light one LED, and a 6V you can light two. The lights flash approximately three times per second (3 Hz) and have a duty cycle of 76ms. With just five parts, this kit is great for anyone from beginners to experts.
What can I learn about with this solder kit?
Practice soldering and learn about electronics and circuits with this running light solder kit, which uses a resistor, capacitors and LEDs. The circuit uses capacitors to decide which LEDs light at any given moment. Learn how the components are connected in a circuit and get practical experience in soldering them. The kit can be used with 1-2V LEDs with an operating current of 10-20mA. You can use larger 2.5-3.5V LEDs, but they must be run off a 6V power supply and only one LED per channel. This kit requires a soldering iron and solder and may require wire cutters.
How easy is this kit to solder?
Easy to solder, this kit is great for beginners learning about electronics. You can also combine this kit with others and create your own projects. You could build an enclosure (not included) for the circuit to protect the electronics, or build it into a display or model. This kit runs off a DC 3-6V power supply (not included).
