Strobe Light / Flash Light Circuits and Tutorials

12 Volt Strobe Circuit: this circuit uses12V DC instead od mains AC. This is very good idea if you don't want to mess with direct mains voltage connected circuit or you want to run the stroboscope from batteries.

Adjustable Strobe Light: 120-Volt mains power source, up to20 Hz flash rate

Flash Slave Trigger: Flash slaves are used when you need to supplement1-flash unit with1-or several more. This slave trigger simply triggers those other units. It does this by "seeing" the first flash (using a phototransistor) and triggering the other flashes a few microseconds later. The sensitivity of the circuit is adjustable to compensate for ambient light or dimmer than usual master flashes.

Flashing Beacon

Hacking the Kodak Max Single Flash Camera Into a Self Repeating Strobe: this approach is recommended mainly for home brewing a strobe that is powered by a single1.5 volt battery. If you can use a higher supply voltage, there are better ways to do this.

LED Stroboscope: This simple LED Stroboscope circuit which I designed, maintains constant
brightness of the LED at all frequencies. This is accomplished by duty-cycle and pulse width control. It is useful for measuring the speed of motors. It can easily be calibrated using a watch so you don’t need a frequency counter.

Mini Pocket Strobe Circuit: works from two1.5-Volt AA batteries, based on modified camera flash unit

Mini Strobe Light using LED: adjustable for flash rates between40 Hz and166 Hz, based on555 Timer

Miniature Strobe Light

Strobe Controller: simple controller for professional stroboscopes, adjust the flash rate in1..15 Hz range

Trigger Circuit for Strobes: circuits which can be used for triggering stroboscopes from external signals

Typical Strobe Light Trigger Circuit: 555 based Timing circuit which triggers a SCR which controls the trigger transformer
