Digital object counter kit- Assembly tutorial

This article is about assembly of counter module used with digital object counter DIY kit. If you have come to this page directly from a search engine, please visit this page first to know about digital object counter. The suggested page gives you more details about this kit. You will eventually come back to this page, don’t worry ūüôā .

This kit includes everything you need to make a simple digital object counter. The object counter kit set includes an infrared (IR) transmitter DIY kit to make it work. The counter module and the infrared transmitter module can be kept at a distance of 1 meter with infrared LED facing towards the infrared sensor. ¬†The LED continuously transmits infrared rays to the sensor and whenever an object obstructs the rays, the ‘seven segment display’ counts from 0 to 99.

Assembly of digital object counter is very straightforward and all components are through-hole. You can see the label and images printed on the circuit board and assemble the components accordingly.

Check the PCB of the counter kit:

You can notice on the PCB that the component names have been labeled clearly. You can also check all the assembly images from flickr.com.

Step 1: Fix all the resistors.

Values are as follows:

a. R1: 10 kilo Ohm: Brown- Black- Orange

10k

b. R2: 330 Ohm: Orange- Orange- Brown

330

c. R3, R4, R5 and R6: 1 Kilo Ohm- Brown- Black- Red

1 k

Your counter module can be tested with a general remote control. As you press the remote control, the number on the display increases.

To use the module as an object counter, you need to assemble IR transmitter module also. Please click here for assembly instructions of infrared transmitter.

    This is 3 digits digital object counter kit for electronics beginners and hobbyists. It is the upgraded version of our previous 2 digits and 3 digits object counter.

    You can use this 3 digits digital object counter for counting objects or people entering in a room. It can be used by engineers for learning about digital counters.

    This DIY digital object counter works with VS1838 infrared receiver and photoresistor and there are three seven segment displays displaying numbers from 0 to 999. An IR transmitter is directed towards the VS1838 infrared receiver 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 0 to 999.
