Electronic Siren Circuit

Electronic Siren circuit diagram

This is the schematic diagram of electronic siren circuit. The sound produced imitates the rise and fall of an American police siren. When very first switched on, the 10uF capacitors is discharged and each transistors are off. When the push button switch is pressed to 10uF capacitor will charge via the 22k resistor. This voltage is applied towards the base of the BC108B which will turn on slowly. When the switch is released the capacitor will discharge via the 100k and 47k base resistors and also the transistor will slowly turn off. The change in voltage alters the frequency of the electronic siren.

Electric current drain is fairly high in this electronic siren circuit so a appropriate power supply is needed. The duration the tone takes to rise and fall is determined by the 10uF and 22k resistor. These values may possibly be varied for various effects.
