"Beck clearly states to use his device on your wrist. The devices on this yahoo group are big sponges were is says look you can hook up as many as
you want to one 6v battery. Put them on your ankles, wrist, stomach, etc.....
Clearly doesn't seem like the same info I'm looking for
I'm looking for info on the device Beck gave schematics for, not a home made modified piece".
You are completely correct.The devices have been simplified after much research and feedback from users over 9 years practical usage experience.
Remember ORDINARY JOE cannot understand or have patience for complicated circuit diagrams.
They are not intelligent as you or have qualifications.
Remember geekdom is universally frowned upon and in Hollywood movies nerds and geeks wear glasses,sweaters and have no girlfriends.
So it is not cool to be intelligent.Girls prefer thugs with spiky hair gel who will beat them up after a few drinks or dump them after they get
It is very stressful for ORDINARY JOE to even look at a circuit diagram,they are more used to watching Oprah, or the Simpsons or X-factor or
America's next Top Model.
This is why the devices have been simplified.Also the original beck device using 3 x 9 volts batteries is overly complicated and probably not required
since new knowledge and experience suggests about 6 to 9 volts volts is safer. The Beck device again is just a high voltage (27 volts) square wave
generator using an Op-Amp chip.Click the below links for the circuit diagram.
you need to look in the files section and also in the photos.did you click the left hand menu?
also go to nerdland folder.ooohh noooo..don't let her see you or ,or you girlfriend is gonna dump you now! lol.('
ALSO THE HEX SCHMITT TRIGGER IS ACTUALLY CD40106 OR HCF40106 OR HEF40106
40 to 60 cents each...
i got the numbers transposed...sorry.
also do not use the 74HC14 HEX SCHMITT TRIGGERS as it can only tolerate a maximum supply voltage RANGE 2 TO 7 volts.
The cd40106 can have a supply voltage range from 3 to 15 volts and some devices 3 to 18 volts or even 3 to 20 volts.
here is a direct link to a data sheet.
scroll down to application data for a simple basic oscillator using a single resister and capacitor.
i recommend a 220 uf and 4.7 megohm variable resister.
(0.000220 fareds and 4700000 ohms).
using a single inverter as shown on diagram the output of which is connected to input of inverter 2 and output of inverter 2 is connected to input to
of inverter 3.
if you connect wires now to the output of inverter 2 and anothor wire to the output of inverter 3 you have a biphasic output or automatic polarity
changing output which is connected to pads or wrist electrodes ,sponges,or what ever.
this will give you an oscillator output from about 0.001 hertz to about 10 hertz depending on your preference.The trim pot allows you change the
output frequency from 0.001 hertz to about 10 hertz.
this means you will get positive pulses lasting a maximum of about 5 minute then the output voltage reverses and you get a negative pulse output of 5
minute duration depending on your trimpot setting.
In other words the positive electrode becomes negative and the negative electrode becomes positive=biphasic =polarity changing=polarity reversing.
