This is a simple and easy to build multi tone alarm circuit that can be used in burglar alarms or sirens. The circuit is based on dual op-amp MC1458 and LM 380. The two op amps inside the MC 1458 are used to produce square and triangular waves.LM 380 is used to amplify the output.The first op amp IC1a is wired as an astable multi vibrator and second op amp IC1b is wired as an integrator, to make the square wave triangle.
The two output square ans sine can be selected using switch S1 to the input of IC2 which amplifies it to drive the speaker. POT R4 can be used for tone adjustment.
- IC1a and IC1b are same. So their power supply is common.Wire exactly as shown in figure, nothing to care.
- C1 and C2 are ceramic, C3 is electrolytic capacitor.
- Pin 6 of IC2 (inv input) has no connection.
- A dual power supply is needed here.
