Project report submitted to:
Prof. Karthikeyan A. Faculty, Electronics Engineering VIT University.

As an assignment for IInd semester for the session 2010-11.

Problem Statement:
 To design and implement a Water Level Indicator, using

Electronic devices like LEDs, ICs, Transistors, etc.
 The reason behind taking this problem into consideration was

there occurs a huge wastage of water due to overflow in overhead tanks.

Approach to Problem Solution:
 Our main requirements for the indicator are as follows: o Low Power consumption o Compact, with less Electronic complexity o Simplified result o Economical  So the recommended solutions for the above mentioned

requirements are:
o Usage of LEDs enables low battery consumption and

o Multiple LEDs give a simplified result by indicating the

level of water in the overhead tank.
o Use of a single IC to perform the computation makes it less


Literature Survey
IC 4066
The 4066 chip is a Quad Bilateral Switch that can be used with digital or analog signals.

Transistor BC148
It’s a plastic version of a standard NPN Transistor and is used for small signal general purpose amplification.

SPST Switch (Single Pole, Single Throw)
A Simple on-off switch: The two terminals are either connected together or disconnected from each other. An example is a light switch.
