Scheduling of College Bell using Microcontroller


"Science is the study of the world as it is. Engineering is the creation of the world tomorrow". Science is basically "passive" observation of the universe, as it exists to generate knowledge. Engineering is making use of that knowledge to meet human needs by creating machine, systems, process and technologies that have not previously existed. Design and manufacturing are the synthetic part of engineering practice. Manufacturer has received a lot of attention recently for very good economic reasons. Due to literacy awareness the number of colleges, schools and institutions are rapidly increasing. In present system bells for periods or recess are operated manually. After every class, one employee is engaged into alarming bell. To avoid this, automisation of college bell is possible so the bell would ring automatically at the scheduled time. This project deals with the preparation of circuit for scheduling of bell.

Scheduling of College Bell using Microcontroller

This Project takes over the task of ringing of the bell in colleges. It replaces the Manual Switching of the Bell in the College. It has an Inbuilt Real Time Clock (PCF 8583) which track over the Real Time. When this time equals to the bell ringing time, then the relay for the bell is switched ONN. The Bell Ringing time can be edited at any Time, so that it can be used at Normal Class Timings as well as Exam Times. The Real Time Clock is displayed on four 7-segment display. The Microcontroller PIC16F877A is used to control all the Functions, it get the time through the keypad and store it in its Memory. And when the Real time and Bell time get equal then the Bell is switched on for a predetermined time.

An electric bell is a mechanical bell that functions by means of an electromagnet. Principle

In DC electric bells, when power is applied, current flows through the coil. The coil becomes an electromagnet, attracting the metal strip. This moves the clanger to hit the bell/gong, but also breaks the circuit. The coil is no longer a magnet, so the clanger moves back. The circuit is thus restored. The process repeats continuously until the power is removed. Government Polytechnic, Amravati 3

Scheduling of College Bell using Microcontroller AC electric bells do not have interrupting contacts and their coils are powered directly by the source. Their hammers vibrate at same frequency as the frequency of voltage that they are powered by. Lack of contacts makes them more reliable than DC bells. Some electric bells have two cups which generate different tones. When the hammer goes in one direction, it hits one cup, when it moves back, it hits another cup. The sound of such two-tone electric bells is more pleasant.

Applications Two early applications of the electric bell were the telephone and doorbell. Early telephones used electric bells to indicate that there was an incoming call. Doorbells were used by visitors to indicate their presence at the external door of a dwelling or business. Though still in use, the electric bell mechanisms in both telephones and doorbells now compete with nonmechanical noisemaking technologies including electronic oscillators and digitally recorded sounds played back through a speaker. A common style of doorbell uses an AC solenoid coil and a plunger. When the doorbell button is depressed, the plunger is drawn into the solenoid and strikes a gong; a shading coil on the solenoid prevents the Government Polytechnic, Amravati 4

Basic methods of preparing artwork are:  Ink the drawing. SOLDERING AND SOLDERING TECHNIQUE There are basically two types of soldering techniques:  Manual soldering with iron. A polyester foil and tracing paper may be used.  Using block tapes and sticking patterns. Amravati 42 .

After the paint on a copper side has dried. Government Polytechnic. Now keep carban paper of the same size on PCB taking glass epoxy surface on the top carban paper. Since the tracing paper is transparent you can now reproduce carbon print over the PCB. wetting of this surface with molten solder and cooling time for solidification is important. The various types of soldering are  Mass soldering:  Dip soldering:  Wave soldering: PRINTING OF PCB The drawing so prepared has to imposed over the glass epoxy. check the drawing carefully. keeping the glass epoxy side on rub away the dirt. Take a PCB terminated sheet and cut the of required size of PCB by using hacksaw place the glass epoxy plate sheet on a table. keep plate in open to dry.Scheduling of College Bell using Microcontroller During soldering. relative positioning of the surfaces to be joined. After tracing the PCB layout now paint the tracks wish the help of oil paint and brush. excess paint should be scratched off wish of a blade. grease and oxide wish a sand paper. Amravati 43 .

Amravati 44 . remove the paint with a soft piece of cloth or cotton. Take out the PCB from the solution only when the unmarked portion of copper is completely dissolved in this solution wash the PCB wish water. Now the plate is what we call it as printed circuit board. Now the next process is soldering. After the etching process drilling is done for mounting the components. In this process. MOUNTING AND SOLDERING. take water and mix a few tea spoons of ferric chloride powder and few drop of HCL. the leads of components are joined/ soldered with the copper tracks of PCB.Scheduling of College Bell using Microcontroller ETCHING OF PCB In a tray. After washing PCB. Drill the board by using hand drill or machine drill. DRILLING. Before inserting the leads of the components are placed on the irrespective position (according to the circuit Diagram) this process is called as component mounting. Reaction . Immerse/dip the PCB in this solution keep the PCB in this solution for about 40-50 min. For this tussible Government Polytechnic.2FeC13+2Cu=2CuC12+Fe2Cl Observe the changing color of copper surface.

Amravati 45 . Government Polytechnic.Scheduling of College Bell using Microcontroller alloy metal which is known as 'SOLDERING WIRE1 is required soft solder has 37% of lead and 63 % of zinc and is used because of its excellent drying action. soldering gun is used. It gives mechanically strong point for soldering the components. Flux is used as an inorganic solvent. Its melting point is very low.

3) 4) 5) 6) Compact in size so takes less space. Government Polytechnic. institutions etc. Easy to install. This project is much suitable college. Time editable facility is available. Amravati 46 . schools.Scheduling of College Bell using Microcontroller ADVANTAGES 1) 2) Automatic scheduling of college bell is possible The components used for the assembling of this circuit are very cheap and are easily available in the market. Hence the initial cost of setting up the circuit is minimal.

Government Polytechnic.Scheduling of College Bell using Microcontroller CONCLUSION Present day manual operation for ringing the bell in colleges or schools are carried out. The time input can be edited as per requirements. This circuit is simple to prepare and easy to install. we have decided to prepare the circuit which will be operated automatically and the ringing of bell will start by its own time. Amravati 47 . We can say that it will be much useful for colleges or schools or other educational institutions. The main disadvantage of this is one person is to be keep alert for this. To overcome from this. At the same time during that time he could not be engage in another task. “Intel’s MCS 51 Data Book ”.wikipedia. Amravati 48 .  www. V.
