Car warning lights circuit

Posted on Nov 7, 2012

The SN75604, with input control logic but requiring only one supply rail, can be used in the `lights on` sensor and alarm driver. The device Vqq and enable inputs are connected to a voltage lead from the light switch. The direction control input is connected to a lead from the ignition switch. Only operation of the lights without the ignition will result in the alarm sounding.

The beeper used in this application is an Archer 273-066 that will operate from 3 V to 28 V. At a typical 12 V level, it will produce a pulsating tone of about 95 dB at 30 cm. The alarm "on" current is about 12 mA when operating from a 12 V supply.
