ROCKER. The fun and easy sequence blinking LED, running
LEDs left to right, right to left, or up/down kit.
ROCKER - UD6 has many applications; fill your party with
running, blinking ROCKERS. Mount the ROCKER on your bicycle so you'll be
more visible and have a safer ride when signaling. Use as a
sign on room door as an indicator of how way "cool"
you are. Place ROCKER anywhere
you’d like to draw attention and a smile. The unique small
design will allow you to mount it almost anywhere. Operate it
with 9V battery, 12V car battery, four 1.5V batteries, or via
one of our battery simulator kits. The alternative uses are endless. It’s designed for the beginner as well as
the expert. Please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
and let us know the creative ways you use your ROCKERS!
It Yourself (DIY) and enjoy your kit.

Mount your ROCKER almost anywhere.
ROCKER. Our left/right to right/left running blinking LEDs kit is based on
“10 bit counter.” Using the LM555 as a clock generator to
drive the counter increases the 10 bit counter by one, therefore lighting the next
LED. Using diodes as a "OR" configuration crreates the
following repeated sequence of the LEDs: L1, L2, L3, L4, L5, L6,
L5, L4, L3, L2, L1.
RLX resistor determines the LEDs brightness, and limits the
current flow to about 10 to 15mA when running between 9V to 12
ROCKER flash running rate is determined by C1 capacitor and R1
resistor. Increasing C1, while decreasing R1, will slow the
be advised: Staring at the ROCKER for an extended period of time
may cause dizziness, glazing over, or hypnotic effect!
