ir remote control home appliance

Posted on Feb 7, 2014

This is the most popular IR Remote control circuit for home appliances like lamp, fan, radio, tv etc to make the appliance turn on/off from a TV, VCD or DVD remote control. It is very simple to build because of few components and simple design. The circuit can activated from up to 10 metres. The 38kHz infrared (IR) rays generated by the remote con

trol are received by IR receiver module TSOP1738 of the circuit. Pin 1 of TSOP1738 is connected to ground, pin 2 is connected to the power supply through resistor R5 and the output is taken from pin 3. The output signal is amplified by transistor T1 (BC558). The amplified signal is fed to clock pin 14 of decade counter IC CD4017 (IC1). Pin 8 of IC1 is grounded, pin 16 is connected to Vcc and pin 3 is connected to LED1 (red), which glows to indicate that the appliance is off. ` The output of IC1 is taken from its pin 2. LED2 (green) connected to pin 2 is used to indicate the on` state of the appliance. Transistor T2 (BC548) connected to pin 2 of IC1 drives relay RL1. Diode IN 4148 acts as a freewheeling diode. The appliance to be controlled is connected between the pole of the relay and neutral terminal of mains. It gets connected to live terminal of AC mains via normally opened (N/O) contact when the relay energises. you can use any NPN transistor inplace of BC548. You can also use SL100 or any NPN transistor lying around you. The delay depends on the C1 capacitor. Using higher value capacitor will create more delay and using less value capacitor will switch the circuit more than 2 times when you press a remote. Analyse the circuit by placing the 10uf capacitor in place of C1 (100uf).
