74AC240 MOTOR DRIVERNovember 13, 2019
The ‘ also has tri-state outputs, so an enable line can be used to turn its outputs on and off simply good for adding reversing capability to a ‘bot. The flashing LED also provides diagnostic visual indication of the operation of the slave bicore. The Motors and Legs Five motors are used to control rotation of each of the four legs and the waist. When a turning reverser is active, one set of diagonal legs moves forward or backwards while the other set rotates the walker clockwise or counter-clockwise around it’s center. Wilf has posted assembly and test instructions for this circuit here. This is a standard FLED photopopper made with a Sanyo solar cell, and a couple of motors salvaged from laptop CD-ROM drives the motors that move the head back and forth across the disk surface. A red LED in in series with the 5V regulator ground reference raises the output voltage to the 6.

The trick with symets is to get the angle relative to the ground and the spindle ground contact right so that the symet moves in a straight line until it hits something.
This guy works well. The 78L05 provides constant current charging until the maximum float voltage is reached.
This is my third attempt at a solar head, again using a Nihon gear motor like my second one. I actually used a 74HCT by mistake meant to use an HCbut it seems to work pretty well anyway!
The LEDs are super-bright blue and green.
74AC replacement | All About Circuits
The circuit is mounted on this arm, with some care taken to balance it so that the arm can motro all the way around given enough force. Q2 being ON grounds R2. One thing to be aware of is that when you have your circuit on the breadboard, running a motor with no load, the motor will spin for much longer than it does under load. This is done by routing the signals through one of two parallel paths:. Since the ‘ has 8 buffer s 74a240. Can give very long bicore time constants if components are carefully matched.
Nv-based stepper motor drive
This guy is pretty active in bright light, churning his way in straight line. VI The waist reverser uses two inverter s in U8 and is connected between one output of each of the U6 and U7 master bicore s and the waist slave bicore circuit moyor described in V.
The waist motor phase reversal occurs when one of two tactile switches is triggered by collision with an obstacle.
This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. There are two 74ACs: The solar engine is free-formed to lie over the IC. A schematic is available. This causes the current flowing through R2 to increase to a higher 74ac24 latching the circuit ON. The two groups each have four inputs connected in common to a bicore output and the four outputs are connected in common to one motor winding terminal.
Both sides will be latched OFF.
Octal Inverting Buffer
Here is the complete circuit. It has two photodiodes for light sensing, and two antennae which switch the motors into reverse when they touch something. L This circuit has greatly improved sensitivity in low light conditions. I ended up using a VCR pinch roller, which has a very free-rotating bearing but had to be laboriously stripped of 74xc240 rubber wheel. The 78M05 regulates output voltage to within mV i.
Meanwhile, for ultra-low-power 5V – 12V applications for NvNuor oscillator circuits, use a 74 C The 74HC chip used for U8 provides a reverser and a slave bicore for the waist motor as well as a monocore a. The body of the rotating part jotor a hard drive head mechanism, which happened to fit nicely over the pinch roller hub.
More complex turbots can move towards the light, reverse their motors to get out of tangles, and other things. The Bare Bones photovore is a beautifully simple circuit that makes use of the fact that the switching voltage of the inverter inputs on the 74AC is roughly half the supply voltage.
When sufficient light intensity is applied to the LED2 it tends to absorb the current flowing through R2 increasing the drive to Q2. This makes it more suitable for solar BEAM applications. Note that Schmitt triggers can’t easily be used in suspended bicore implementations so save your ’14s for non-suspended designs.
Note that if you need more than about mA per motor, you’ll need to use an H-bridge, or some similar motor driverin conjunction with or instead of this chip.
