Keypad based simple electronic lock using 8051 microcontroller (AT89C51)
There are several electronic devices which require a security lock for their protection. This article describes a way to build an electronic lock with a four-digit password. A keypad, interfaced with 8051 microcontroller (AT89C51), is used to enter the password. The password and its status are displayed on an LCD screen.
A 4x3 matrix keypad and a 16x2 LCD have been used here. Keypad and LCD are very commonly used input & output devices, respectively. A four digit predefined password is specified in the microcontroller AT89C51's program. If the entered password from keypad matches with this password, then the lock opens and a message is displayed on LCD. Also an output pin is made high to be used for further purpose.
A preset is a three legged electronic component which can be made to offer varying resistance in a circuit. The resistance is varied by adjusting the rotary control over it. The adjustment can be done by using a small screw driver or...
