Tone detector

Posted on Apr 1, 2012    4715

The detector circuit is made up a two-amplifier multiple feedback bandpass filter followed by an ac-to-dc detector section and a Schmitt Trigger. The bandpass filter (with a Q of greater than 100) passes only 5Q0 Hz inputs whch are in turn rectified by Dl and filtered by R9 and Ca

This filtering action in combination with the trigger level of 5 V for the Schmitt device insures that at least 55 cycles of 500 Hz input must be present before the output will react to a tone input.
