In this post we are going to make a digital socket timer using Arduino whose countdown time can be witnessed via 16 x 2 LCD display. Introduction The proposed circuit is general purpose timer with display and few buttons for setting the time. Once the time is set output goes high and starts countdown the […]
Time Delay Relay
When a relay is operated with timed delay it becomes a delay relay switch.
In this category we learn how to build many such small and big timer circuits which could be integrated with relay for creating delay relay switches.
Under this category you will find a substantial number of small and big timer circuits as per your specific needs which could be combined with a relay to constitute a timer based relay switch.

The post discusses a simple food warmer lamp timer circuit for restaurants and hotels which can be used for automatically switching OFF the lamps after a predetermined time whenever the food under the lamps are idle or in the absence of an interaction under the lamps, thus saving precious electricity. The idea was requested by […]
The post details a timer circuit for submersible borewell pumpset which alternately switches the pumpset ON/OFF at a predetermined rate in order to allow the ground water sufficient time to restore at regular intervals and to ensure a consistent water supply to the attached overhead tank. The idea was requested by Mr. Siva. Circuit Objectives […]
The post talks about an IC 4060 timer circuit problem implemented in a coffee wending machine, in which the circuit simply stops working each time its stipulated delay period is lapsed, even after a complete power switch OFF and ON. The question was presented by Mr. Kenndy and was solved through the following email discussion: […]
