Mindsets 555 Noisemaker Solder Kit
• Build your own noise maker with an adjustable tone, to connect to a speaker
• Generates a square wave between approximately 20Hz – 20 kHz
• Simple and fun to solder with 18 parts
• Requires a DC 9-18V power supply (not included)What can I do with this kit?
With this kit, you can output a square wave to drive a FET for output into large loads (such as a speaker) directly. You can generate and adjust a frequency between 20Hz and 20kHz. Use it as an alarm or scarer by connecting to an external input (not included). With a 53mm x 29mm board, you can fit this board in almost anywhere and connecting is quick and easy with screw terminals. With 18 parts, this is a great kit for those looking to progress from basic builds. How does this kit work?
This kit contains the 555 timer chip, which have a lot of applications. This is a great kit to learn how they work. You can set the frequency using the potentiometer (variable resistor) and the 555 chip will create a square wave which can be used as a logic signal or connected to a speaker to be used as a tone generator. Get experience in soldering resistors, potentiometers, capacitors and microchips and see how they go together in a circuit. This kit requires a soldering iron
and solder and may require a wire cutter. How easy is it to solder?
This kit is great for those looking to move on from beginner’s kits and is a good introduction to the 555 timer chips – which are used in more complicated circuits. Once the kit is built, you can add to it with additional gear, creating an enclosure or connecting it to an input such as a motion or light sensor. The kit is powered by a 9-18V power supply (not included).
