Specification

By R. Bebbington
Published by Babani

Although library shelves and bookstalls bulge with a bumper crop of gardening books, surprising few pages are devoted to electricity and fewer still to electronics. It's no secret that success in the garden is largely dependant on the elements; keeping a weather eye open is important for protecting those tender shoots. You can't control the elements, but you can use them to control your results-by courtesy of electronics. This book offers some simple circuits that will monitor weather and environmental conditions and provide warnings or take remedial action as necessary. For example, such projects include rain detection, frost warning, under/over temperature monitoring, dusk/dawn switching and automatic plant watering.
Raking through the chapters, you will find such interests as security devices, process timing, warming cables for propagators, ponds and pumps, and the low-down on low-voltage circuits for lighting schemes. To encourage beginners branching out in electronics, some construction methods are introduced using breadboard layouts, or screw terminal blocks to obviate soldering. In the interests of safety, all projects are powered by low-voltage supplies.
