To observe the
applications of various
loads like capacitors,
transistors, diodes relays
and rectifiers in a cycle
timer circuit.

Electronics have a vast use in our lives. They
store our money, monitor your heartbeats
carry the sound of your voice into other
people's homes, bring airplanes into land and
guide cars safely to their destination. It's
amazing to think just how many things "they"
actually do. "They" are electrons: tiny
particles within atoms that march around
defined paths known as circuits carrying
electrical energy. One of the greatest things
people learned to do in the 20th century was
to use electrons to control machines and
process information. The electronics
revolution, as this is known, accelerated the
computer revolution and both these things
have transformed many areas of our lives.
Electronic circuits are at the heart of any
electrical device. One such circuit discussed
here is the working of 'ON' and 'OFF' relay

switch that cycle at a selected rate. These are

useful for light displays, flashers, beacons,
greenhouses, aquariums, photography,
science projects, lab testing and any other
application that needs time controlled ON-OFF

An electric circuit is a path which electrons
from a voltage or current source flow. Electric
current flows in a closed path called an electric
circuit. The point where those electrons enter
an electrical circuit is called the "source" of
electrons. The point where the electrons leave
an electrical circuit is called the "return" or
"earth ground". The exit point is called the
"return" because electrons always end up at
the source when they complete the path of an
electrical circuit.
Relays: - relay is an electromagnetic switch
operated by a relatively small electric current
that can turn on or off a much larger electric
current. The heart of a relay is an
electromagnet (a coil of wire that becomes a
temporary magnet when electricity flows

through it). You can think of a relay as a kind of

electric lever: switch it on with a tiny current
and it switches on ("leverages") another
appliance using a much bigger current.
Working:- When power flows through the first circuit (1),

it activates the electromagnet (brown), generating a

magnetic field (blue) that attracts a contact (red) and
activates the second circuit (2). When the power is
switched off, a spring pulls the contact back up to its
original position, switching the second circuit off again.
This is an example of a "normally open" (NO) relay: the
contacts in the second circuit are not connected by
default, and switch on only when a current flows through
the magnet. Other relays are "normally closed" (NC; the
contacts are connected so a current flows through them
by default) and switch off only when the magnet is
activated, pulling or pushing the contacts apart. Normally
open relays are the most common.
How a relay links two circuits together: - On the left
side, there's an input circuit powered by a switch or a
sensor of some kind. When this circuit is activated, it

feeds current to an electromagnet that pulls a metal

switch closed and activates the second, output circuit (on
the right side). The relatively small current in the input
circuit thus activates the larger current in the output

1. The input circuit (black loop) is switched off and no

current flows through it until something (either a
sensor or a switch closing) turns it on. The output
circuit (blue loop) is also switched off.
2. When a small current flows in the input circuit, it
activates the electromagnet (shown here as a red
coil), which produces a magnetic field all around it.
3. The energized electromagnet pulls the metal bar in
the output circuit toward it, closing the switch and
allowing a much bigger current to flow through the
output circuit.
4. The output circuit operates a high-current appliance
such as a lamp or an electric motor.

Transistors- A transistor is a semiconductor

device used to amplify and switch electronic
signals and electrical power. It is composed of
semiconductor material with at least three
terminals for connection to an external circuit.
One of the major transistor classes are the
bipolar junction transistors(BJT). Both NPN and
PNP are bipolar junction transistors (BJTs). BJTs
are current-controlled transistors that allow for
current amplification.
A current input into the base of the transistor
allows for a much larger current across the emitter
and collector leads. NPN and PNPs are exactly the
same in their function, they provide amplification
and/or switching capability.


NPN Transistor

An NPN transistor receives positive voltage at the

collector terminal. This positive voltage to the
collector allows current to flow across from the

collector to emitter, given that there is a sufficient

base current to turn the transistor on.
How a NPN transistor works: As you increase
current to the base of a NPN transistor, the
transistor is turned on more and more until it
conducts fully from collector to emitter. And as you
decrease current to the base of a NPN transistor,
the transistor turns on less and less, until the
current is so low, the transistor no longer conducts
across collector to emitter, and shuts off.

PNP Transistor

A PNP transistor receives positive voltage at the

emitter terminal. The positive voltage to the
emitter allows current to flow from the emitter to
the collector, given that there is no current flowing
into the base.

When there is current at the base, the transistor is

off and does not conduct to power the load
connected to it. When there is no current at the
base, the transistor is on and conducts across to
power on the output load.

Rectifier - A rectifier is an electrical device

that converts alternating current (AC), which
periodically reverses direction, to direct current
(DC), which flows in only one direction. The
process is known as rectification. The full wave
bridge rectifier has 4 leads. Two leads (on
opposite corners) accept incoming alternating
current, and the other two give Direct Current

Logic Gates - A logic

gate is an elementary
building block of a digital
circuit. Most logic gates have two inputs and
one output. At any given moment, every
terminal is in one of the two binary conditions
low (0) or high (1), represented by different
voltage levels.

Logic gates are primarily

implemented using diodes or
transistors acting as electronic
switches, but can also be
constructed using vacuum
tubes, electromagnetic relays.

Different logic gates with their input and outputs

Diode - A diode is a simple electrical device that

allows the flow of current only in one direction. So
it can be said to act somewhat like a switch. A
specific arrangement of diodes can convert AC to
pulsating DC, hence it is sometimes also called as
a rectifier. It is derived from "di-ode " which means
a device having two electrodes.

Circuit diagram:-


In a single cycle on/off timer when you

press the start push button (P.B) the
relay will be turned on after preset time
and remains on for preset time.
When the P.B is pressed the latch
formed by N1,N2 will set pin 3 of N1 as
well as N5 high. It will start charging the
capacitor C2 via resistor 4. As soon as it
reaches 2/3 of supply voltage, pin 11 of
n8 will be low to switch on relay through
relay driving circuit formed by
transistors T1,T2.
Simultaneously it will reset the latch
through N3 and N6 as the latch is reset
pin 3 of n5 is low and pin 11 of n4 is
high. It will start charging the capacitor
c1 through p1 R3. As soon as it reaches
2/3 voltage pin 3 of n5 will be low and
output of n8 will be high to switch of
relay. This way the cycle completes and
repeats as P.B is pressed.
