        Hi all,

        The Schmitt trigger is a very versatile circuit !

        We change a few blocks and by setting the potentiometer we can adjust the charging and discharging of the capacitor.
        Did you also notice that we use a 120 Ω resistor in series with the light bulb ?
        This will reduce the lamp current and save our battery 🙂

        In a few days, I will explain how this and previous version (part 2) works.

        Did you also know that we can build these circuits also with the modern Silicon NPN transistors ?
        Try it out !
        The Ge transistors have other characteristics so we may need to adapt the circuit by changing resistor values.

        Many greetings

        Schmitt trigger V3

          Yet another great addition to your fantastic circuit contributions Frank!

          Fellow Lectroneers, don’t forget that the legacy Lectron circuits use a positive ground.  The new Lectron circuits post 2001 use a negative ground.

          Best regards to all,
          Michael
