Telephone blinker

Posted on Nov 25, 2012

A small neon lamp is triggered into conduction by the telephone's ringing voltage, passes just enough current to activate the LED in optocoupler Ul, which in turn triggers the 6-A Triac that controls 12—a 117-Vac lamp or bell. (Capacitor Cl is necessary only when the circuit is used to drive a bell.) The lamp will flash off-and-on at the ringing rate, which is normally around 20 Hz.
