John Boxall of Tronixstuff is known for his electronic kit reviews, he recently did a hands on build review of our IR Jammer Kit. You have to love his Fluke meter, if you haven’t seen one of these before you might think it’s a meter the size of a display but it’s actually a normal sized meter with a removable display. This would allow the display be placed in a convenient location to view it while the meter and probes are deep inside the system being inspected. The picture below is a shot of the IR LEDs all on, I think this was probably hard to capture since they are flashing very quickly. Of course the infrared LEDs are invisible to our naked eye but this shows a trick to see them which is to view them through a camera.

As John mentions the IR Jammer (infrared jammer) would make a great companion to the TV-B-Gone, his evil plan is to turn off a TV, then jam the TV so that it can’t be turned on. I am thinking that would make for a nice cruel joke. :)

    I still have no idea what this project is because I can’t get past the $300 DMM cut in half. :-o

  2. Scott Says:

    OK, I guess if I read the post and checked the link it would have made sense. Now I can read what the project is about. ;-)

    Hey Scott,

    Yea those meters look very cool!

    Hello
    Thanks for reposting my review. Yes, that meter is great – I love it. You can put the meter with a thermocouple in the freezer, and leave the display on the door (it’s magnetic). I showed it to my friend who is an auto electrician, and had trouble prying it out of her hands.
    With regards to the photo of the IR jammer LEDs – CCD digital cameras can pick up infra-red, whereas the naked eye can not. That’s why when you tale a photo with a digital camera (as above) the LEDs appear to be brightly on – they are, but on the infra-red wavelength.

    This is also the theory behind illumination systems for digital security cameras – if you can look closely at one you may see a ring of LEDs around the lens, they are the IR illuminators. If you really want to get up to some mischief, get a hat or something similar, surround the facial area with IR leds being PWM’d at a high duty cycle, then go for a walk in a shopping centre/mall. You should have security on you in about four minutes.

    Anyhow, have fun and enjoy this blog, I do very much (oh, and mine!)
    cheers

    You could just reprogram the PIC to turn it into a TV-B-Gone, No?

    confused as to why the schematic is different than the tv-b-gone.

  7. Alan Parekh Says:

    Hi gdogg,

    Yes the unit could send out IR codes like the TV-B-Gone, not sure if there would be enough storage on the PIC to hold all the codes though. The design is different since they were made by two different people.
