Velleman Water Alarm Solder Kit

• Build a water detector that sets off an alarm to warn you about water in an area
• Use as a warning for flooding or damp
• A great introduction to soldering with 8 parts
• Requires a 9V battery (not included, Order Code L46AL)

What can I create with this kit?
Build a flood warning alarm with this water detector (manufacturers code MK108). The detection contacts can be used at a distance of up to 2 meters. Simply cut the board along the markings and attach the two parts with two wires (not included). You can use this detector to trigger warnings in the event of flooding, or use it as a rain detector. With 8 parts, this kit is easy and fun to make for anyone even total beginners

What can I learn from this water detecting kit?
You can practise soldering and learn about electronics and circuits with this electronic detection kit. It uses resistors, a transistor, and a speaker, which you can use learn about connecting circuits. The kit works on the principle that water is conductive, so when it reaches the contacts it completes the circuit, setting off the speaker. This kit requires a soldering iron and solder and may require wire cutters.

How easy is this kit to solder?
Simple to solder, this kit is ideal for beginners learning about electronics or for those looking for a trigger to add to other projects. Putting the kit together is just the start of your adventure. You could use external material (not included) to create an enclosure for the kit to protect the electronics. This kit comes with a holder for a 9V (PP3) battery (not included), which is needed for the receiver and transmitter. This kit is not recommended for outdoor use.
