TRANSISTORS WITH ARDUINO (BJT)

Arduino

Driving a LED from arduino is really simple & easy and ARDUINO does it well but when it comes to driving high power output devices such as ‘high power led’s’ , ‘motors’ etc. then ARDUINO is not able to drive such outputs directly and to drive such kind of outputs we need a amplifier to amplify the signal and generally we use transistors to amplify the signal of arduino and drive led’s or motors according to the signal of arduino and generally we use BJT’s for those kind of jobs.

Basic of Transistor

The basic is really simple the signal wire of Arduino will be connected to base of the transistor and output is connected at collector and emitter is grounded and when a current will flow from Arduino pin to base then there will be a current flow proportional to the base current in output which will go through collector to emitter and called as collector current.

Gather Your Components

In order to drive the output first know the current requirement of your output if it requires approx 600mA current then a normal BJT will do the job but when it comes to drive high power ouput devices such as high power led which requires about 1A current then you have to go for Darlington Pair NPN BJT Transistors.

NPN Transistor- Link 1 , Link 2

Darlington Pair Transistor : TIP 120 – Link 1

other components required-

Breadboard

Arduino

Power supply

Led

Resistor 1k

High power LED /Motor as a output

Jumpers

Circuit

connect transistor to the arduino as shown in schmatics and if having problem then refer video.

So when digital pin of arduino outputs a signal which is connected to base of transistor by a resistor , then there will be a current flow towards the base from arduino is called as base current and proportional to that there will be a current flow from collector to emitter which results turning ON the output.

Watch Video for detailed information.

    and from now on every time a comment is added I receive
    four emails with the exact same comment. Is there a way you can remove me from that service?
    Many thanks!

    if it’s the blog. Any responses would be greatly appreciated.

  34. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d
    ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe
    guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My blog addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from
    each other. If you’re interested feel free
    to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!

  36. Hi. I have checked your electronicguru.in and i see you’ve
    got some duplicate content so probably it is
    the reason that you don’t rank hi in google. But you can fix this issue
    fast. There is a tool that creates content like human, just search in google: miftolo’s tools

  37. When I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each
    time a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the exact same comment.
    Perhaps there is a means you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks a lot!

  38. Hi are using WordPress for your site platform?

    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my
    own. Do you require any coding knowledge to make your own blog?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  39. Great post. I was checking constantly this blog and
    I’m impressed! Extremely helpful info specially the last part :
    ) I care for such information much. I was
