Product Description

What is the project?

We commonly encounter areas wherein we need to interchange gadgets on/off at unique time intervals. We simulate this machine using a water pump that is controlled via RTC input.

How it works?

The RTC (Real time clock) is used to replace the motor on and stale at preferred time periods. An RTC outputs actual time signals which want to be transformed into virtual indicators for further processing. The RTC gives those inputs to the microcontroller. The microcontroller then tests for time. It then switches on off motor while the RTC time fits pre-described time.

We usually come across areas where we need to switch devices on/off at particular time intervals. We simulate this system using a water pump that is controlled through RTC input. The RTC (Real time clock) is used to switch the motor on and off at desired time intervals. An RTC outputs real time signals which need to be converted into digital signals for further processing. The RTC provides these inputs to the microcontroller. The microcontroller then checks for time. It then switches on off motor when the RTC time matches pre defined time.
