Police siren using NE555
Last Updated on January 27, 2014 by jacky in 555 Timer IC, Tone generator circuits with 15

A lot of electronic circuits using NE555 timer IC are already published here and this is just
another one.Here is the circuit diagram of a police siren based on NE55 timer IC. The circuit
uses two NE555 timers ICs and each of them are wired as astable multivibrators.The circuit
can be powered from anything between 6 to 15V DC and is fairly loud.By connecting an
additional power ampliᲴer at the output you can further increase the loudness.


IC1 is wired as a slow astable multivibrator operating at around 20Hz @ 50% duty cycle and
IC2 is wired as fast astable multivibrator operating at around 600Hz.The output of Ჴrst
astable mutivibrator is connected to the control voltage input (pin5) of IC2. This makes the
output of IC2 modulated by the output frequency of IC1, giving a siren e᳤ect. In simple words,
the output frequency of IC2 is controlled by the output of IC1.
For all of you who do not have a clear understanding of the working and basics of the
NE555IC, we have provided an online book store  for you. Here 3 books are reviewed in
detail with links to buy the books online itself. Get your copy now by clicking here:- 3 Great
