Subassembly Pretest

To conduct a test on the device, follow these steps:

1 Turn pots counterclockwise and install eight fresh A A batteries into the BH1 holder, as shown in Figure 27-5.

Note that a variable bench supply capable of 12 volts-direct current (vdc) at 1 amp with a volt and current meter can be a great conven­ience for the remaining steps and for the test­ing of other similar circuits.

Subassembly Pretest

Cut out center of two 3.5" plastic caps by placing them on the enclosure tube and cutting out the center section with an x-acto knife using the inner wall as a guide.

Drill hole in handle for pushbutton switch S1 It may be necessary to recess the hole so nut will reach shank

Note that hole in EN1 for handle is best cut with a 1 g" circle saw Fit must be tight to properly secure handle in place The handle serves as the housing for the single 9 volt or 8 AA cells


Panel is cut from аз|х 3^" piece of 035 aluminum Cut согпеге to approach a circular shape.

2. Push button SI and note a loud, piercing wave coming from TD1. Measure a current of 300 to 400 milliamperes in a series with a batter}’.

3. Rotate R9 and note that the frequency increases to above the audible range. Then measure a current of 100 to 200 milliamperes.

4. Note the wave shapes shown in Figure 27-2 for those who have a scope.

5 Turn on sweep control R2/S2 and note the fre­quency being modulated by a changing rate as this control is adjusted. Use caution as certain sweep rates may cause epileptic fits and other undesirable effects. Sweep rates between 7 and 20 per second should be used with cau­tion.

Final Rssembly

The final steps arc as follows:

1. Cut the rear panel from а З’Аі – x 3V4-inch piece of aluminum. Add holes for the controls as shown in Figure 27-5.

2. Create the CAP2 and CAP3 retaining caps from a 3]/2-inch plastic cap. This is easily done by placing a cap over the end of the main enclosure and carefully removing the center section with a sharp knife, using the wall thickncss as a guide. These reworked caps now retain the transducer and the rear panel to the main enclosure.

3. Create EN1 and HA1 from the material indi­cated on the parts list. Add a hole in the main enclosure for the insertion of the HA1 handle section. The hole must provide a tight fit. Glue the parts together.

4. Create the final assembly as shown.

Note that the frequency range with the values shown is 4 to 20 kFlz. The frequency range can be changed by increasing the value of C5 to lower it or by decreasing the range to raise it. Experiment for a desired result. The sweep range with the value shown is 4 to 50 Hz. C2 can be changed in a similar function.

Sound pressure measurements will vary from 130 to 100 db at 18 inches depending on the frequency. Certain sweep rates between 5 to 20 per second may cause dizziness or epileptic fits.
