Long duration timer

Posted on Apr 16, 2012

The time circuit can provide a time delay of up to 20 minutes. The circuit is a standard relaxation oscillator with a FET current source in which resistor Rl is used to provide reverse bias on the gate-to-source of the JFET. This turns the JFET off and increases the charging time of Cl.
