There is nothing worse than running your drops only to realize that you have a fault in one of the cable runs. The best approach is to get it right in the first place by using a "LAN Cable Tester". Sometimes, cables can also tear because of poor material quality or bad installation or sometimes they get gnawed by animals.
In this project, I am going to make a LAN cable tester with just a few basi...

**555 timer based PWM LED dimmer**
This project uses PWM to turn on and off a LED (or a strip of them) really fast and changes the duty cycle (Fig.1) so that the human brain perceive it as the dimming of the LED(s). This means that the MOSFET doesn’t have to drop large amount of voltage, this makes the device very energy efficient.
Electric fence with car bobin made for sheep.
Maximum input voltage is 15V (Limited by 555 timer chip, voltage on the chip is actually lower for 1v because of forward voltage drop of the diode but anyways keep within 15V because its not good to push components to their limits)
No input reverse polarity protection, if you reverse polarity on input 220uF capacitor will blow up and probably mosfets...
