    Electrical Circuit Problem

    Thank you for this info, I can actually use this info for my next project, however for this particular project, I had already known from the start that I was going to need at least two switches, (i.e. a master switch, a power switch for the strobes, and another switch to turn on a device running...

    Normally Open Switch

    Well it looks like I may just have to try it, I'm pretty sure I connected the switch the same way I had the batteries, and it looks like it's worth a try. I forgot to explain that the wires were color coded and wires of the same color are all part of the same wire. I am planning on placing both...

    Normally Open Switch

    Hello, I have a strobe light which is powered normally by two AAA batteries in series creating a 3 volt DC power supply. When the batteries are inserted, the circuit is closed with the exception of the switch. The strobe light is composed of five LED's which have six different ON modes...

    Electrical Circuit Problem

    wow I think I realize how there is "NO WAY" my 9 volt configuration is going to power this thing. Taking a current reading, I got 200 mA. Thank you very much for bringing this to my attention. I will be needing to make some design changes. The only reason why I needed a 9 volt battery was to...

    Electrical Circuit Problem

    Do you suspect there is going to be too much current going through, or too little current? I will try measuring the current through the devices and get back with the results. If there is too little current coming out of the 9v battery I have somewhat an idea of how to handle it. But otherwise I...

    Electrical Circuit Problem

    Oh yes I forgot about that option, what rating should a capacitor have in this circuit, and also, would that affect the output voltage of my DC power source? I just need any value for a capacitor that seems reasonable to include in this circuit as have very limited knowledge with numericals...

    Electrical Circuit Problem

    I am also considering maybe creating a series of seven 1.2v rechargeable AAA batteries in order to create an 8.4v battery with a rating of 750 mah. I think this may be able to generate enough amperage for my devices. I think the calculation for the output amps of a battery is something like...

    Electrical Circuit Problem

    Hello, thank you for the information. I actually am using a 9v battery because in parallel to the strobe configuration is a 9 volt device. My battery with an output of 8.4v has a rating of 170 mah. Maybe if I would just parallel two 9v batteries of 170 mah would I end up with an 8.4v battery...

    Electrical Circuit Problem

    Hello I am currently designing a circuit but have run into a couple dead ends. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to take the time to help me with this problem. I am a little rusty at finding unknowns in a circuit, but basically I am trying to find the rating of a resistor I would need...
