Off timer with alarm

Off timer with alarm

We published various timer based project but now we are going to publish a different type of timer based project. Here, is a simple inexpensive and attain grabbing circuit “Off Timer with Alarm”. This circuit automatic turns off the electrical appliance when set time is complete with alarm.

Circuit description of off timer with alarm

The entire circuit circuit of off timer with alarm is build and fabricated around transistor. Transistor T1 and T2 is used to drive the relay and transistor T3 and T4 is used to drive the piezobuzzer. The glowing LED LED1 indicate relay RL1 is energized where glowing LED LED2 with buzzer sound indicates relay RL1 is de-energized. The time period of this timer circuit is set by adjusting VR1 and switch SW1 starts time of timer circuit.
