$12.95 ea.

Volume III of the Forrest Mims Engineer's Mini Notebook series includes three of his best-selling notebooks devoted to sensors: Sensor Projects; Solar Cell Projects; and Magnet Sensor Projects.

Description [Hide]

Electronic sensors convert light, temperature, sound, magnetic fields, and other signals into a form that can be processed by electronic circuits. Sensors have become an increasingly important segment of modern electronics.

Learn about important sensors like solar cells, photoresistors, thermistors, hall-effect devices, and magnet switches. Then use these sensors to build circuits and projects that respond to heat, pressure, light, touch, water, strain, lightning and magnets. You can even make a circuit that detects the presence of the cursor on your computer screen and the position of a compass needle.

Build Projects the Detect:

  • Moving Air
  • Tilt
  • Pressure
  • Direction
  • Heat
  • Vibration
  • Movement
  • Strain
  • Light
  • Magnetic Fields

Use Sensors to:

  • Trigger Relays
  • Charge Batteries
  • Measure Light
  • Control a Tone
  • Monitor Your PC
