Darlington Transistor

A darlington transistor can be used as a solid state switch controlled by a low current PICAXE output and able to switch a higher current load that a PICAXE output could not handle directly.

Activate a transistor

The following program will activate a transistor connected to output B.1 for a second every five seconds.

Code Example:
main: 	high B.1 	; Switch on output B.1 
	pause 1000 	; Wait 1 second 
	low B.1 	; Switch off output B.1 
	pause 5000 	; Wait 5 seconds 
	goto main 	; Loop back to start
