If you want to drive something like a motor, solenoid, relay or even a speaker, then you’ll need extra components. But did anyone tell your mosfet smoking’s bad for them? Read times previous topic – next topic. Jun 27, Messages: In your case, swap the resistor and LED in the top right for your latch. Please do not ask for unpaid help via PM, use the forum. It might just work for your app, although Pd will still be 2W or so.

Another option for lower currents is to use a different type of transistor, called a bipolar transistor.

How come my MOSFET was a “smoking”, I thought it was rated high enough. – Page 2

The Arduino pins marked below are the connections used in the demo circuit. If you don’t select insurance you are NOT insured. Do you already have an account? These circuits are probably all you would need for a relay coil, or even a speaker generating tones, as the power mosfett needs to be applied one way.

Please see our replacement XC Instead of building this from parts, there are a couple of H-bridge IC’s which make setting this up much easier, and removing the need for many external components. Power and Arduino Please see the attached Power-and-Arduino. I haven’t got any resistors in play at the moment, so I’m not expecting this to work too well. Next working day Selected Metro Areas orders placed before 2: By the way if you switch a 50W load the switch does not dissipate 50W, only the on current flowing through the on resistance.


IRF540N Mosfet Transistor

Although this means that the motor is normally floating and connected to the higher voltage, it also means that a low voltage device like the Arduino can control a higher voltage device. Discussing NPN transistors for now, while MOSFETs typically work off the voltage applied to their gate compared with their source VGSa bipolar transistor depends on the current flowing into the base and out of the emitterand permits a proportional current to flow into the collector.

Thanks for the input though, I haven’t yet put any resistors across it. Contact the Techstore should you require more details. We do not automatically jayca unless you specify it during the checkout.

If you need to reverse the current flow for example, to reverse the direction of a motorthen you would need four transistors arranged in what is called a H-bridge. The gate threshold is where it just starts to turn on not when it is jayycar fully. Note that there are no external components at all.

Next working day Selected Metro Areas orders placed before 2: If so, how would I go about doing that? Please see the attached Power-and-Arduino. ZK This handy dual N-channel Mosfet can be used in many projects. The sketch below turns the motor forward for a second, off for a second and then reverse for a second and off for another second.


One of my favourites is http: It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter’s Law.

2SJ162 P-channel Mosfet

No, create an account now. One of the resistors and the ,osfet are simply used to indicate that the ‘signal’ pin is on. Try one of these http: Check the datasheet if using a different MOSFET, as they might be in a different order, and some might have different ratings.

Works brilliantly for automotive projects such as switching high-power 12V lights and high wattage LEDs. Mar 6, Messages: So there are probably many other suitable mosfets available at Element In fact, the BUZ71 is a very marginal device, but the original IRF will probably work for your app if you wire it up properly, even though not a logic-level device. The same code as above will work with this circuit.

MarkT on Sep 25, This meant that the strike latch negative terminal went straight to ground.
