5 to 30 Minute Timer


Posted on May 15, 2012

A switched timer for intervals of 5 to 30 minutes incremented in 5 minute steps. Simple to build, simple to make, nothing too complicated here. However you must use the CMOS type 555 timer designated the 7555, a normal 555 timer will not work here due to the resistor values. Also a low leakage type capacitor must be used for C1, and I would strongly suggest a Tantalum Bead type.

Switch 3 adds an extra resistor in series to the timing chain with each rotation, the timing period us defined as :- Timing = 1.1 C1 x R1 Note that R1 has a value of 8.2M with S3 at position "a" and 49.2M at position "f". This
