Electronic Doorbell Circuit


Posted on Feb 5, 2014

This simple and cost-effective ding dong electronic doorbell circuit is based on IC 8021-2. The IC has an in-built circuitry to produce ding dong sound each time its pin 3 is pulled low. The sound is stored in the IC as bits, as in a ROM. The sound output from the IC can`t however drive a speaker directly, as this puts strain on the device. Theref

ore a complementary-pair, two-transistor amplifier is used to amplify the sound to a fair level of audiblity. You may either use a piezo tweeter or an 8-ohm, 500mW speaker at the output. This simple electronic doorbell has not been tested. During the standby period, the IC consumes nominal current of a few microamperes only. Therefore switch S1 may be kept closed. Each time switch S2 is pressed, ding dong sound is produced twice. If you try to press switch S2 a second time when the first ding dong sound is still being produed, it has no effect whatever and the two ding-dong bell sounds will be invariably produced.
