Slide2

The Continuity tester

Continuity is essential if current is to flow in a circuit. A continuity tester is useful for quickly testing open and short circuits and is one of the most used test tool when checking for wiring faults.

Slide3

how this continuity tester works

this

continuity tester works by making a noise and the led lighting up to tell you that a electrical current is going through the circuit. If the tester is doing these actions it means that the circuit is functional.

Slide4

How the

continuity

tester was made

The circuit diagram was made in circuit wizard where all the components were put on the PCB on the screen to find the structure of the circuit. The tracks and pads of the circuit couldn't be too close and needed to connect correctly. Then the circuit was printed out and formed into a circuit board where holes were drilled into the circuit board to create the connection points for the real components. After that the circuit was put together and put in a box and labelled

Slide6

Hazards when creating the circuit

In the making of the circuit there are many hazards that could be bad for you and the people around you and they need to be corrected before going on e.g. : the drill bit for drilling the hole could be not on right and it miss drills (to fix this you could check the drill bit before drilling), the solder from the solder could melt on you or your cloths (to counter this you could where short cloths and solder carefully).

Slide8

Changes that can be made to the circuit

The flashing rate of the led and the pitch of the beep can be changed in two ways:

1.

T

he 10nF capacitors can be changed: doing this will change the pitch of the beep. Increasing the value of the capacitor will make it deeper and decreasing the value makes it more high pitched and the led gets affected in the same way increasing the value makes it flash faster and decreasing the value makes it flash slower.2. The 47k resistors can be changed: doing this will change

the

pitch

of the

beep. Increasing

the value of the

resistor

will make it deeper and decreasing the value makes it more high

pitched and

the led

gets

affected in the same way increasing the value makes it flash faster and decreasing the value makes it flash slower

.

The flash rate of the led is hard to see. To get any significant change the value of the capacitors or resistors would need to increase massively.
