Q. Hi, I am looking for an astable kit that that will falsh slowly on and of or on for a few seconds and of for the same of longer time period. Can you help. Thanks Jamess
A. Hi James, thanks for your question. If you change the values of the 10k resistors or 100uf capacitors (possibly replace the 10k with a potentiometer), the rate of flash can be altered. You can either leave the potentiometer set or measure its value and replace with an equivalent fixed resistor. This will however be a trial and error process, so feel free to experiment with the values.
