This circuit features an intermittent siren output and automatic reset. It can be operated manually using a key-switch or a hidden switch; but it can also be wired to set itself automatically when you turn-off the ignition. By adding external relays you can immobilize the bike, flash the lights etc. Ron has used my Any number of normally-open swit

ches may be used. Fit "tilt" switches that close when the steering is moved or when the bike is lifted off its side-stand or pushed forward off its centre-stand. Use micro-switches to protect removable panels and the lids of panniers etc. Once activated, the rate at which the siren switches on and off is controlled by R7, R8 & C4. For example, increasing R7 will make the sound period longer; while increasing R8 gives longer silent periods. While at least one switch remains closed the siren will sound. About one minutes after all of the switches have been opened, the alarm will reset. How long it takes to switch off depends on the characteristics of the actual components used. You can adjust the time to suit your requirements by changing the value of R4 and/or C1. The circuit is designed to use an electronic Siren drawing 300 to 400mA. It`s not usually a good idea to use the bike`s own Horn because it can be easily located and disconnected. However, if you choose to use the Horn, remember that the alarm relay is too small to carry the necessary current. Connect the coil of a suitably rated relay to the "Siren" output. This can then be used to sound the Horn, flash the lights etc. The Support Material for this alarm includes a detailed guide to the construction of the circuit-board, a parts list, a complete circuit description and more. The circuit board and switches must be protected from the elements. Dampness or...
