Periodic Timer

  
A switched timer with equal make and equal space periods timing adjustable from over 6 minutes to 38 minutes. This timer circuit is similar to the 5 to 30 minute timer except that when switch S1 is closed, the on/off action of the circuit will continue indefinately until S1 is opened again. A 7555 time and low leakage type capacitor for C1 must be used. The 6 way rotary switch S3 adds extra resistance in series to the timing chain with each rotation, minimum resistance point `a` maximum point `f`.
Periodic Timer - schematic

The 7555 is wired as an equal mark/space ratio oscillator, the timing resistor chain R1 to R6, being connected back to the output of the timer at pin 3.The output pulse duration is defined as:- T = 1.4 R1 C1 This gives on and off times of about 37
