This kit is perfect for studying the use of a 555 timer in its astable mode, where it produces a square wave output. The frequency of the output is adjustable via the variable resistor.

The board has a choice of two outputs. The logic output can be used to drive another IC or a speaker can be connected so the tone is heard (e.g. a door bell).

The push button switch connects to the reset line such that the IC is only active when the button is pressed.

  • 555 timer IC kit.

Question:

I bought this timer kit to operate a LED with a frequency to flash once every 20-30 seconds. Is that ok. Also I presume the LED connects to where the 'speaker' output is. Regards, Richard.

    Hi Richard, The kit you have wouldn’t be suitable for what you require. The easiest way to do it would be to use a programming board and a programmable IC. This would then allow you to program the chip to perform the function you want. Something like this would be suitable, https://www.kitronik.co.uk/2126-8-pin-pic-development-board-2-in-3-out.html

Question:

To whom it may concern, I am writing to you, because I would like to ask if I can connect The 555 Timer Astable (Tone Generator) Kit with 3V Ceramic Piezo Transducer 41/2.0S (http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/3v-ceramic-piezo-transducer-4120s-yu83e) ? Thank you for your help. Kind regards, Paulina
