Speed alarm

Posted on Mar 23, 2013

Pulses from the distributor points are passed through a current limiting resistor, rectified, and clipped at 4 volts. Via Q1 and the diode pump, a dc voltage proportional to engine rpm is presented to RV1; the sharp transfer characteristic of a CMOS gate, assisted by feedback, is used to enable the oscillator formed by the remaining half of the 4011
