FAQ


This page contain Seismo-Quake™ frequently asked questions.




Section 1: Frequently Asked Questions

Nothing happens !

Make sure the 9 Volt (or PP3) battery is correctly connected. The black wire connects to GND and the red wire connects to +V. If you use another power source make sure the wires are correctly connected. Double check the wiring before applying power. The preferred voltage to use is 9V and must be direct current (DC).


My Seismo-Quake™ street lights are not lighting up !

The Seismo-Quake™ street lights are controlled by the difference of day and night or in other words shade and light. You will need to switch off the room lights at night or cover the sensor with your hand to lighten up your Seismo-Quake™ street.


How do I alter my Seismo-Quake™ earthquake magnitude ?

Make use of a screwdriver and turn the potentiometer clock wise or anti-clock wise on the Seismo-Quake™ Quake Control printed circuit board (PCB).


Can I design my own illuminated Seismo-Quake™ street name ?

Yes. The dimensions are 57mm x 35mm (2.24 x 1.37 inches). Print, colour and roll the paper in a cylinder form and glue carefully together or use double sided tape.


Can I design my own Seismo-Quake™ 'colour me' town ?

Yes. The dimensions are 233mm x 164mm (9.17 x 6.45 inches). Print, colour and lightly attach the paper to the top board.


Can I make my Seismo-Quake™ traffic lights really bright ?

Yes. Visit your favourite electronic hobby shop and ask for 5mm extra bright LEDs in the various traffic light colours. Solder and replace with the new extra bright LEDs.


Will an AC / DC adaptor work ?

Yes. A word of caution, AC mains is dangerous, take great care. If you are unsure, wait and ask a knowledgeable person to assist. Set the AC / DC adaptor to 9V, check polarity and make sure you have the correct connector connections.


Can I use tiny light bulbs for my Seismo-Quake™ street lights ?

Yes. Make sure the tiny direct current (DC) light bulbs do not draw excessive current. Check the manual for current ratings.


Can I power 'real' street lights ?

No, unfortunately not.
