Normally Closed Transistor Help
« on: May 30, 2009, 06:22:37 PM »
Hi all,

I need help with a circuit that gives me a 5v (high) when a normally closed circuit is opened.  How do I configure the transistor and is it PNP or NPN.

Thanks,
Jason

I have thought about it.. if I use a PNP and keep base high and then when open base is low, the current will flow E to C... correct?

what is the transistor connected to?
you could use a no relay so when the circuit opens it closes the switch?

In PNP it's Collector high rail, Emitter device
In NPN it's Emitter low rail, Collector device...

For whom the interrupts toll...


P.S. I've been inactive for almost a year... Don't give promises but I'll try to complete my tutorials. I'll let you know when..

Cheers!
