Pressure Sensor Alarm Circuit Schematic

Posted on Feb 6, 2014

The simple pressure sensor alarm is built around a couple of readily available cheap components. Working of this circuit is straight forward and self-explanatory. When the circuit is powered by a 9V compact battery, the active piezo-sounder at the output of IC1 starts beeping for a short time and then goes into idle state. Whenever, the pressure sensor element (Piezo-ceramic wafer) is gently tapped, mosfet T1

is fired by the electric pulse from the sensor through related components and IC1 is again enabled by T1. As a result, the piezo-sounder starts beeping for a short duration, set by the in-circuit values of R3 and C2. Piezo-sounder at the output of IC1 can be replaced with a low current 6 to 9 V electromagnetic/solid-state relay to control external loads. Likewise, values of components T1, R3 and C2 are not very critical. You can experiment with another values to tune  the circuit as per your requirements. Pressure sensors (in piezo-wafer form) are widely available with reputed hobby electronics components dealers.
