Electronic ship siren
The circuit consists of a multivibrator (Ql & Q2), and a low power output stage Q3. The speaker should have an impedance in the region of 40 to 80 ohms. To use a low impedance speaker, connect an output transformer from the emitter of Q3 to ground. Cl and C2 determine the pitch of the siren and the values specified will provide a tone of about...
This circuit mimics the dual-tone drone sound that"s produced by the unusual wind instrument. Urnjunction transistors Ql and Q2 are connected in similar audio-oscillator circuits. Each of the oscillator frequencies is determined by one of the two resistors selected by one of the pushbutton switches, S4 through Sll. The odd-numbered resistors...
This siren provides a constant audio output, but alternates between two separate tones. The LM13080 is set to oscillate at one basic frequency;
Unijunction transistors Ql and Q2 are both connected as relaxation-type, sawtooth oscillators. Transistor Ql is the low-frequency control oscillator and Q2 is the tone generator. Sawtooth waveforms are produced at the emitter terminals. Without R4 connecting the two emitters, each oscillator operates independently, with its frequency...
Transistors Ql and Q2, with feedback provided via Cl from the collector of Ql to the base of Q2, forms a voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO). De- pending on the voltage applied to Q2 "s base, the VCO frequency ranges from around 60 Hz to 7.5 kHz. The instantaneous voltage applied to the base of Q2 is determined by the values of C2, R2, R3,...

Six preset controls and seven selector switches enable a vast range of different sounds to be produced and altered at will. Such sounds as steam trains chuffing, helicopters flying, bird chirping, and machine guns firing are possible, as well as the usual police sirens, phaser guns, and bomb explosions. The circuit incorporates an amplifier...
A pair of timer IC"s are the heart of a circuit that simulates the warbling bee-haw of a British police siren. One of the 555 timers, U2, is wired as an astable multivibrator operating at about 900 Hz. The other, Ul, operates at approximately 1 Hz. Its output at pin 3 is a square wave with a 50% duty cycle-on and off cycles of about 0.5...
The wailing sound of a siren is generated by a VFO consisting of Q1 and Q2. Capacitor C2 provides the feedback for the oscillator. The frequency of the oscillator is varied by the voltage applied to the base of Q1 through R3. When switch S1 is closed, capacitor Cl charges, thus increasing the oscillator frequency. When S1 is released,...
The simple circuit transforms the steady beep of an audible-signal device, such as a Mallory sonalert, into a distinctive warble or chirp. The value of R, C2 determines just what tone color you"ll get. With 1k the 1-I"F value shown, the circuit produces a warble similar to the ring tone of an inexpensive phone. A R, 10-I"F value produces a...

Siren system circuit
The circuit uses a CA3130 BiMOS op amp as a multivibrator to control the siren's rate. A CA3094 used as a VCO is followed by a CA3082 transistor array used to drive a speaker. A "Manual" or "Auto" mode switch allows the user to select either intermittent or continuous siren operation, respectively.
Two NAND gates are used for the oscillator, and two as the control. If the two-tone speed needs to be altered, the 220 Âµ capacitors can be changed Oarger for slower operation). If the frequency of the oscillator is to be changed, the 0.2 and 0.1 /iF capacitors can be varied and the value of Rl can be increased. To change frequency range between...

Car Alarm and Immobilizer
The alarm is "set" by opening Sw1. It can be any small 1-amp single-pole change-over switch - but for added security you could use a key-switch. Once Sw1 is opened you have about 10 to 15 seconds to get out of the vehicle and close the door behind you. When you return and open the door the buzzer will sound. You have 10 to 15 seconds to move Sw1...

Sub-Harmonic Bass Converter for Electric Guitars
The sub-harmonic bass generator is a sound producing unit for guitars. The sound it produces looks very much like that of the bass guitar. The octave generator is sometimes quite unusual since it does not produce any of the usual ways of coloring the sound, such as filtering or distortion. Instead, a frequency division system produces outputs...
Echo Depth Sounding Sonar for Boats
In the past the sounding (sea bottom measurement) was done with the "bullet", that is, with a heavy lead object that the seamen plucked into the sea hung from a calibrated rope. As soon as the "bullet" reached the bottom, the depth appeared directly from the calibration of the rope. This arrangement still exists in some yachts. The big...
