- 3 x common cathode seven segment display-(Can be in red, yellow and blue colors)
- 1 x TSOP4838 Infrared sensor
- 1 x 100uF Capacitor- (Voltage rating can be between 16V to 50V- causes no problem in operation)
- 2 x 0.1uF 50V ceramic Capacitor
- 2 x 3mm LED- (can be any color)
- 1 x BC547
- 1 x BC557
- 1 x SPDT Slide Switch
- 1 x Tactile reset switch
- 1 x Screw terminal- (can be in blue/green colors)
- 4 x 1K Ohm Resistor 1/4W
- 1 x 330R Resistor 1/4W
- 1 x 10K Ohm Resistor 1/4W
- 1 x Bare PCB with Silkscreen Indicators
- 1 x 9V battery connector
Please follow the following steps:
Step 1: Solder 1K Ohm resistors. The color code of 1K ohm resistor is Brown-Black-Red
Click on the image to see the color code more clearly.
Step 2: Solder 10K Ohm resistor and 330 Ohm resistors. The color code for 10K Ohm resistor is Brown- Black- Orange and color code of 330 Ohm resistor is Orange-Orange-Brown.
Step 3: Solder 2pcs 0.1uF (code- 104) capacitors.
Step 4: Solder 2pcs 3mm LED. If you do not know which pin is Anode and which is cathode, please see this. The longer pin is Anode and the shorter pin is Cathode.
Step 5: Solder tactile switch. The switch is for resetting the counter. You can see how it work on the video below.
Step 6: Solder BC557 PNP transistor.
Step 7: Solder BC547 NPN transistor
Step 8: Solder 5V voltage regulator. The 5V regulator chip is marked as 78L05. It is in TO-92 package.
Step 9: Solder TSOP4838 infrared sensor.
Step 10: Solder SPDT switch. It is used for switching ON/OFF the counter module.
Step 11: Solder 2 pin screw terminal. It is used for connecting a 9V battery to the counter module.
Step 12: Solder 3pcs of 16 pin DIL sockets. These are used for stacking CD4026 chips.
Step 13: Solder three seven segment displays and 100uF Capacitor. Please notice the + and – terminal of the capacitor. Solder it correctly.
Step 14: Put CD4026 chips over the DIL sockets.
Step 15: Use a 9V battery to operate the kit. Your kit is now ready to use.

3 Digit Digital Objects Counter With Laser ModuleUS $14.95 – US $19.95
This is 3 digits digital object counter kit for electronics beginners and hobbyists. You can use this counter for counting objects or people entering into a room. It can be used by engineers for learning about digital counters.
This digital object counter works with a laser module and a photoresistor and there are three seven segment displays displaying numbers from 000 to 999. The laser module is directed towards the photoresistor of the counter module and objects are moved between the two modules. Each time an object passes between the two modules, the seven-segment displays show increment in numbers from 000 to 999.
