Circuits Designed by Dave Johnson, P.E. :

Transmitter for Line Powered Xenon Flash -  This line powered xenon flash circuit drives a small camera type flash tube.  it has an optical isolator to allow the flash to be safely triggered from some remote device.  A flash rate of 2Hz is possible with the circuit . . . Hobby Circuit designed by David A. Johnson P.E.-June, 2000

Xenon Photoflash Controller -  This 9v battery powered circuit is designed for remote control flash needs.  A charge control circuit turns off the high voltage generator when the photoflash capacitor is fully charged.  A neon lamp is included to indicate when the system is ready to flash. . . Circuit by David A. Johnson P.E.-June, 2000

Strobe from Flash -  After using a disposable camera, you can build a strobe light (flashing light) with one simple modification. (6/02/2006)  __ Designed by Jose Pino

Strobe Light -  A xenon flash tube is a triggered gas discharge device.  A voltage may be impressed across the tube and it will not conduct until the xenon gas is ionised by an external high voltage (typically 3 to 5kV).  Once triggered, the gas becomes a very low impedance, and discharges the storage capacitors in about 1ms (this varies considerably, but this figure is fine for basic calculations)  __ Designed by Rod Elliott  ESP

Strobe Light -  Disco anyone? Actually, this strobe serves a much more useful purpose then making it look cool when you dance in the dark.  You can use it to view fast moving objects, look for craks in PC boards (hold the strobe on the trace side of the board and look from the component side) , and it is a great attention getter in a store window __ Designed by Aaron Cake

Strobe Light 12 Volt Coil Powered -  This circuit will give provide a Good Strobe Effect for a variety of
Portable Uses.  Nominal current draw is "up to about" 1 amp at 12 volts.  Depending on value of capacitor on pin 2 of the 555 and the particular choke that is used.  The .01 cap on pin 2 of the 555 may be slightly changed in value to optomize the output drive to the 22 mfd capacitor.   __ Designed by G.L. Chemelec

Strobex Schematic -  Schematic only for a Variable intensity Variable Speed Stroboscop, no circuit description given.   __ Designed by Samuel M. Goldwasser

Strobo Control -  Remote controller for professional lighting system stroboscope, controls the flashing speed.   __ Designed by Tomi Engdahl

Strobo Disco Light using Standard Tube Lamp (TL) -  Using a standard fluorescent tube lamp (TL) , you can make your own disco light, similar to a stroboscope light.  You can even use a half-broken lamp, which one side of the heating filaments has broken.  This circuit use only one side heating filament inside the tube.  Look at the circuit’s schematic below.__ 

Stroboscope -  The 220v supply is rectified and then used to charge the two 3µ* capacitors.  The 1µ capacitor also charges (more slowly) through the 150k resistor and 1M variable resistor.  When the voltage across the 1µ capacitor is high enough to cause the diacs to conduct, the thyristor is triggered.  This produces a high voltage "pulse" at the secondary of the transformer.  This pulse causes the tube to conduct and a flash of light is produced.  __ Acknowledgements The stroboscope was taken from an excellent French electronics magazine  sadly, no longer published called "Elex"

Stroboscope triggers -  This circuit typically uses a voltage around 300 volts for the main high voltage supply and needs a low voltage supply of typically 6 to 15 volts.   __ Designed by Don Klipstein

Transmitter for Line Powered Xenon Flash -  This line powered xenon flash circuit drives a small camera type flash tube.  it has an optical isolator to allow the flash to be safely triggered from some remote device.  A flash rate of 2Hz is possible with the circuit . . . Hobby Circuit designed by David A. Johnson P.E.-June, 2000

Xenon flash valve -  An experiment of the xenon flash valve.   __ Designed by The Electronic Lives Manufacturing-presented Chan

Xenon Flasher -  You are going to like this project.  it costs less than $3.00, contains six BUiLDiNG BLOCKS, re-cycles a disposable flash camera and you are going to learn a lot about electronics. 
Everyone has seen a disposable flash camera.   __ Designed by Collin Mitchell

Xenon Lamp Flash Detector Amplifier -  This circuit has a very low standby current requirement yet has very high sensitivity toward the light flashes from a xenon lamp.  When connected to a flip/flop it can serve as an on on/off Controller. . . Circuit by Dave Johnson P.E.-December, 2004

Xenon Photoflash Controller -  This 9v battery powered circuit is designed for remote control flash needs.  A charge control circuit turns off the high voltage generator when the photoflash capacitor is fully charged.  A neon lamp is included to indicate when the system is ready to flash. . .
