Just over the weekend, there was something happening that baffled me: I have beaten my boyfriend at the game of chess! One of the first words that came out of my mouth was “I won?” and “Did you let me win?” Because in reality, we have been playing a couple of chess games now for about 8 months and I kept on losing to every single game.
Until this weekend, we tried playing the Trivial Pursuit. However, he mopped the board with me but it is okay. I still beat him at chess. I did a small reflection thought. All the weeks of him teaching me the pitfalls and the falls of the game lead to me to making better game choices. It also guided me towards the strategy that I formulated in order to beat him. It also started to sink in: I am learning and I love learning. It is wonderful to discover how things are working and how they are made.
With this in mind, we will look at how some of the electronic equipment work:
For this article, we are going to look at the buttons placed on a keyfob electronics enclosure. One can see the different types of buttons existing everywhere: calculators, keyless remotes of the car, and the television remote. There is a rubber keypad with a conductive contact placed on its back. Once the button is pressed, the conductive contact suddenly meets the board and it started to send an electronic signal that is totally specific to the taskt aht was assigned to the circuit.
Let us take an very simple example, in a calculator, when you press the button that was labeled “1” it indicates the number one. When the button is labeled as “+” is signals the circuit to add, when you press “3” and finally the “=” sign it tells the computer to add the numbers you just keyed in.
In a similar way, in a keyless entry remote, pressing the button that was labeled “unlock” will lead to the activation of the circuit board and it will send a wireless signal to the system’s receiver. This is located in the vehicle and the electric shocks should be opened. This is what you call the key less entry.
There are companies that has an entire line of key ring style remote and these products are widely available in different sizes, styles, and colors. The companies can even print directly on the buttons of these keyfobs to be able to customize them for the project you will be needing them for.
