Programmable Timer


This is one of the simple circuits programmable timer in the series of timer. The time range of this programmable timer is of few second to 90 minutes can be selected by single circuit.

Circuit Description of programmable timer

The whole circuit of programmable timer is build from two ICs i.e. IC 555 (IC1) and IC 7442 (IC2). IC1 is used in monostable mode where output is low when trigger pin 2 is high and vice-versa. The output is high only for preset time determined by the value of capacitor C1 with its corresponding preset with the help of switch SW5.

IC2 is used for selecting the required time duration. The 10 different outputs from programmable timer are connected to its corresponding 3 Volts relay where preset VR1 through VR10 is connected to RL1 through RL10 respectively. Table in below shows the appropriate binary codes.
