Many Electronic circuit projects in simple ways of learning

DIY AC 220V Power Strip for my electronic work bench.

DIY Power Strip for my electronic work bench. In experiment an electronic project that use AC-line as power source. When we turns on-off load or the project. I always remove AC plug input. But it does not convenient and very slow when happens an accident.

Then I try to use an Universal Surge Protector / Power Strip which very useful. But it have large size and have too many OUTLETS more than necessary.


Figure 1

I need just one Outlets only.
Incidentally, Circuit inside (as Figure 2) them use a SPST switch only cause though we turns OFF switch but may current flow to our body.

Figure 2

I need a DPST(Double-pole, Single-throw) Switch to cut off current from AC-line to load both terminal whitch include L(line) and N(neutral). It cause safety from AC-electrical current.


Let’s build it.
As Figure 3 is the circuit diagram or how to assemble components. This switch be build-in with a neon lamp for indicate power on when we turn on. A fuse is use as load protection I use 0.5A for most my job.
3-assemble components

In this case I assemple all parts on small universal box to compact to use. as Figure 4

assemple all parts on small universal box

The more datail I want to homework of you.

In next time I experiment any projects easily and safety.
