A Mini Project Abstract Report
Nandakumar G
Very often we forget to switch off the peripherals likemonitor, scanner, and printer while switching off our PC.The problem is that there are separate power switches toturn the peripherals off. Normally, the peripherals areconnected to a single of those four-way trailing sockets thatare plugged into a single wall socket. If that socket isaccessible, all the devices could be switched off from thereand none of the equipment used will require anymodification. But a more practical scenario will be linkingall the peripherals with the most important peripheral (saythe CPU of a system) such that when that peripheral isswitched off in the ideal way, all the other peripherals willbe made off and the whole system will shut down. This isrealized using a voltage mains manager.
A mains manager circuit allows you to turn all theequipment on or off by just operating the switch on any oneof the devices; for example, when you switch off your PC,the monitor as well as other equipment will get powereddown automatically. You may choose the main equipmentto control other gadgets. The main equipment is to bedirectly plugged into the master socket, while all other equipments are to be connected via the slave socket. Themains supply from the wall socket is to be connected to theinput of the mains manager circuit.Some of the important points to be noted whileconstructing a mains manager circuit are:1. The device connected to the master socket must haveits power switch on the primary side of the internaltransformer. Some electronic equipments have thepower switch on the secondary side and hence thesedevices continue to draw a small current from themains even when switched off. Thus such devices, if connected as the master, will not control the slaveunits correctly.
