Simplest lamp flasher circuit

Posted on Feb 5, 2014

This is a very simple lamp flasher circuit that uses only three components (a capacitor, relay and one resistor) other than the lamp. The working of the circuit is very straight forward. When the power is switched ON the capacitor C1 charges through the resistor. When the voltage across the capacitor is sufficient, the relay switches ON and the la

mp connected via the normally open contact of the relay glows. The relay remains energized until the capacitor discharges and then the lamp extinguishes. The charging and discharging cycle of the capacitor gives a flashing effect to the lamp.
