Up Counter

NEW PROJECT: EASY STEPS MAKE INFRARED BASED OBJECT COUNTER

An up counter simply counts from 0 to 9. We can use this circuit to make digital object counter. This circuit can also be used to make a digital clock.

Click here to read about ‘How digital Clock works?’

We need following components for making an up counter.

  1. 555- configured in astable mode
  2. 7490- decade counter- Click here to get the datasheet
  3. 7447- BCD to seven segment display- Click here to get the datasheet.
  4. Seven segment display- Common Anode

Here, CC-Common Cathode and CA-Common Anode.

6. Resistors- see the schematic

7. Capacitor- see the schematic

8. LED

9. Power supply

The 555-astable multivibrator gives pulse to 7490, for each pulse it outputs 4 bits which are interpreted by 7447 and displayed as numbers on seven segment display.

Click here to read how 7490 IC outputs 4 bits.


Counter with different numbers:

You don’t need to make changes on 555 astable timer and 7447. You just need to modify connections on pins 2,3,6 and7 of 7940.

Count 0 to 1

– Short pins 2 and 9 i.e. connect pin 2 to 9.

– Remove connection of pin 3.

– Connect pins 6 and 7 to negative terminal of battery or ground.

Count 0 to 2

– Short pins 2 and 9 i.e. connect pin 2 to 9.

– Connect pin 3 to 12.

– Connect pins 6 and 7 to negative terminal of battery or ground.

Count 0 to 3

Connect pin 2 to 8.

– Remove connection of pin 3.

– Connect pins 6 and 7 to negative terminal of battery or ground.

Count 0 to 4

Connect pin 3 to 8.

– Connect pin 2 to 12.

– Connect pins 6 and 7 to negative terminal of battery or ground.

Count 0 to 5

Connect pin 2 to 9.

– Connect pin 3 to 8.

– Connect pins 6 and 7 to negative terminal of battery or ground.

Count 0 to 6

– Find out yourself

Count 0 to 7

– Connect pins 2 and 3 to 11.

– Connect pins 6 and 7 to negative terminal of battery or ground.

Count 0 to 8

– Connect pin 2 to 11.

– Connect pin 3 to 12.

– Connect pins 6 and 7 to negative terminal of battery or ground.

Count 0 to 9

– Connect 2,3,6 and 7 to ground.

For resetting counter

Pin 2 and 3 should be momentarily connected to +ve terminal. You can use a push-to-on switch.

    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.
