Touch Switch with 555

Posted on Jul 22, 2012

The modern mechanic switches are improved concerning of old technology. We need however many times to replacement some old switch or to check currents bigger than the durability of certain switches or simple we need something with modern appearance. For he and different reasons is essential the up circuit. He is simple in the manufacture and the materials that use they exist everywhere. This based in the known 555, which drives a relay of which the contacts play the role of switch. The metal surfaces can have what form we want, but it should they are clean and near in the circuit.

In order to it changes situation it suffices touch soft somebody from the two plates. Plate JF1 in order to the contacts of RL1 close [ON] or plate JF2 in order to the contacts of RL1 open [OFF]. The current that RL1 will check depended from his contacts. The Led D2 turns on when the switch they are in place ON and the contacts of RL1 closed. Part List R1-2=3.3M 1/4W 5% D1=1N4148 RL1=12V Relay [Your choise ] R3=10K 1/4W 5% D2= Red LED 3 or 5mm. JF1-2=Metal Plate R4=1K 1/4W 5% Q1=BC547 C1=10nF 63V MKT 5% IC1=555
