Appliance Control System

: Introduction to project:-

This project contains its own hardware and software to control at most eight electric appliances via PC©s parallel [url removed, login to view]

project is independently developed by me.

Aim of project:-

Most of engineering industry using PC to control hardware with using additional I/O card but with my project you can use your default printer port controlling external device such as switching on/off light or control electronic devices. This project allows you to control appliance in your home or office like-turning on or off the air

conditioner, adjusting lighting, opening & closing windows, monitoring burglar alarms, and more.


System:- A PC working on MS-DOS/WINDOWS 98 ME

Software:-A program written in C++.


This material is about the parallel port on MS-DOS / Windows computers.

Imagine you are looking at the back of your pc, and that the parallel port socket is horizontal, with the long row of socket on top. The numbers of the sockets at the ends of the rows are...

13 . . . . . . . . . . 1

25 . . . . . . 14

The 'interesting' pins are: Data bits 0-7: Pins 2 to 9,

respectively. If you write to address 888 (decimal), you should see the

outputs on those pins change. Pins 18-25: Signal ground. (I.e. for a VERY

simple experiment, connect an LED to pin2, a 680ohm resistor to the LED,

and then the other end of the LED to pin 19.

The PCB contains eight identical switched relay positions,

Power input positions to the relays (either [url removed, login to view] jack

centre positive, or via the terminal block) and a Centronics

connector to the parallel port of a PC. To keep the kit

simple no input latches have been put on it. If your

application is important then you should use a UPS to keep

the computer operating in the case of a mains power supply

failure. If the board is accidentally disconnected from the

parallel port then the 10K pulldown resistors will turn the

relay off. The diodes protect the transistors from the backemf

which is occurs when the relay is turned off and its

magnetic field collapses.

The relays are under direct control of the output byte (8

bits) from the parallel port. When a pin is high a nominal

5V is presented to the base resistor R1.
