Infrared 4 x 8 LED Array Kit
Chaser Lights Kit
Intended for CCTV
applications, this device
will illuminate any dark
area viewed with a CCD
camera, yet leave that area dark
to the naked eye. The array of 32 LEDs
provide considerably more illumination than that included
with CCTV cameras, with much lower cost and power
consumption than typical infrared lights. Dimensions: 1⁄2"

Use this kit like a theater
marquee. Every fourth
LED chases around the
display to give you a
dazzling effect. You can
use up to 40 LEDs. Only

Sweet 16 Tone
Decoder Kit
This kit operates great
through phone lines,
radios or scanners. The
decoder detects DTMF
data when each button is
pressed and sends a
unique voltage to the
electronics on the printed
circuit board which activates a circuit on or off. There
are 16 different touch tones, 12 of which are on a normal
phone; special key pads have four additional buttons (a, b,
c, d). This decoder gives an output voltage for all 16 tones.
If you want to use all 16, you can build your own board
with 16 relay and driver circuits on it, or to get fancier,
use a flip-flop IC to achieve a toggle effect or a 555 timer
to provide a timing effect. Uses a 9V battery not included
(#292-035). Dimensions: 2.2" x 2.8".
