The circuit shown in Figure 1 drives an incandescent lamp when plugged into the AC power supply line.
The builder must take care with this circuit because it is powered by the AC power line. The circuit must be inserted in a plastic or wooden box to avoid the possibility of causing shock. Remember that the sensor is also connected to the power supply line and therefore needs to be completely protected from accidental contact with the terminals. The circuit is very simple and can be mounted using a terminal strip, as shown by Figure 2.
This circuit is not self-latching, so when the mag- net is removed the SCR will automatically turn off. The SCR must be installed on a small heatsink, and the lamp should be limited to 300 watts.
SCR - TIC106B, MCR106-4 or equivalent SCR (110 AC power line With suffix D or 6 for the 220/240 AC power line)
D1 - 1N4004 silicon rectifier diode
R1, R2, R3 47 k x 1/8-watt resistors (yellow, violet, orange)
X1 - Reed switch
Terminal strip, wires, heatsink for the SCR, wires, power cord, etc.
