Telephone Switch For Phone Recorder Project

Introduction To Phone Recorder
This phone recorder project will enable you to record both sides of your telephone conversations. One constructed, this switch will allows you to automatically turn on your tape recorder when you pick up the handset of your telephone. Note that your tape recorder must have both a MIC socket and a REMOTE socket on it so that this device can plug into the recorder and control it. This circuit is designed to work for the newer 1.5V and 3V tape recorders as well as the usual 6V or 12V ones.

Phone Recorder Circuit Description

The circuit falls into two parts and these can be easily seen in the diagram. On the left are the connections to each telephone line and to the MIC socket of the tape recorder. The diode and capacitors ensure that no DC voltages pass through to the input of the MIC while the RC network clips large transients. On the right is the circuit which detects when the handset has been lifted and which then turns on the FET. The trim pot adjusts the voltage level of this circuit.
The voltage of the normal telephone line is between 40 to 60 volts (depending on country and telephone system.) When you pick up the handset of the telephone the voltage falls to between 6 and 12 volts. It is this drop in voltage which is used to control the tape recorder through the REMOTE connector. When the line voltage is high the base of the BC548 is pulled high so the transistor is turned on. This pulls the gate of the FET down to less than 1 volt. This shuts off the FET. (N channel enhancement mode FET's need drain bias positive and a positive gate to turn on.)
When the line voltage falls (that is, the handset is picked up) the BC548 will turn off; adjust the trimpot if it does not. So the FET gate potential rises to the 10 volts set by the zener diode. This turns the FET on to high efficiency conduction mode. Different recorders may have different polarities in their REMOTE sockets. To allow for this a PCB mounted switch has to be added to the board which will reverse the polarity of the REMOTE switch just by switching it.

Once completed, place your tape recorder next to the phone. Plug in the 2 sockets (MIC & REMOTE) into the recorder. Put in a casette tape and push 'play'. If the device has been put together correctly either of two things will happen: the tape in the recorder will start to play or it will not.
1. If it does not play then pick up the phone handset. If the tape now starts to play then the device is working. Put the handset down, depress the play and record buttons and the tape will now record when the handset is raised.
2. If the tape plays then either of two things need adjustment:
a) move the position of the trimpot across its range of positions and see if this stops the playing. If it does then lift the handset to see if the playing starts. It should. The device is ready for use.
b) if adjustment of the trimpot does nothing then the REMOTE switch needs to be switched to the other position. Do this and repeat the steps as outlined above.The device should now work.

Build a Low Noise And Drift Composite Amp Circuit Diagram

How to Build a Low Noise And Drift Composite Amp Circuit Diagram. This circuit offers the best of both worlds. It can be combined with a low input offset voltage and drift without degrading the overall system`s dynamic performance. 
 Low Noise And Drift Composite Amp Circuit Diagram

Compared to a standalone FET input operational amplifier, the composite amplifier circuit exhibits a 20-fold improvement in voltage offset and drift. In this circuit arrangement, A1 is a highspeed FET input op amp with a closed-loop gain of 100 (the source impedance was arbitrarily chosen to be 100 kfl). A2 is a Super Beta bipolar input op amp. It has good dc characteristics, biFET-level input bias current, and low noise. A2 monitors the voltage at the input of A1 and injects current to Al`s null pins. This forces A1 to have the input properties of a bipolar amplifier while maintaining its bandwidth and low-input-bias-current noise.

High Power Output Amplifier TDA7294

The famous SGS-THOMSON ST Microelectronics has introduced a Hi-Fi DMOS high-power amplifier circuit TDA7294, its sound great taste bile, which due to its internal circuit from input to output are field-effect devices, rounded sound Mild, delicate Rounuan.  However, with its assembly amplifier, only TDA7294 single-output power is only 70 W, BTL access law is 100 W from top to bottom, do not feel that power cushion. The author several tests, used to promote TDA7294-level, direct-drive one to four pairs of high-power transistor parallel, the output of strong currents, the power output of 400 W (mono), and the circuit is simple and no need to debug that can reliably work Basically, the IC has maintained a sound and performance.  Ruzuo The figure below shows, R6 for the feedback resistor, the author of the value in debugging 22 k Ω more appropriate, R6 also decided this circuit gain, the gain value will increase.  Quiescent current depends on the power of R7, R8, when its value…

Full Power Mobile Phone Jammer Circuit Diagram

Full Power Mobile Phone Jammer Circuit Diagram.To day if we are talking about expert Cell phone Jammers we are conversing about this schematic underneath. First off all you should be very very cautious how to use this apparatus. Its completely illegal and so the reason. I post this Circuit is only for educational and testing causes. This type of apparatus is being utilised by security for VIPS, particularly at their limousines to avoid blasting device initiating while the vehicle passes from the goal cell phone-bomb. Off course there are those who use it to make a antic or to make the persons crazy in the rectangle block you are. 
The power of the jammer is currently sufficient to do your thing, but certainly you can place a 30W linear power amp at the RF output and impede a much wider locality. So, Be pleasant individual with that and recall that there are people who may need desperately to obtain or make a call and one of them could be you! And if you can't oppose of functioning …
