Top 10 555 timer based projects for beginners in 2018:

 

10. Dark Sensor built using 555 Timer:

 

OBJECTIVE: To build a Dark Sensor circuit using 555 timer and LDR which turns on the buzzer in the presence of dark.

This project is build using an LDR with 555 timer. The Buzzer is used as an output indicator in this project.

When light falls on the LDR, 555 timer process this signal and sends logic 0 to the output i.e, the buzzer. And as soon as the light goes off, no light falls on the LDR. Then 555 timer process this signal and sends logic 1 to the output i.e, the buzzer. This way buzzer produces beep sound in the absence of light or in the presence of dark.                               

Components you need for this project are:

1) 555 Timer

2)  LDR(Light dependent resistors) X 1

3) Connecting Wires

4) Buzzer

5) Battery 9v

6) Breadboard 

7) Capacitors 100uf and .01uf

8) Resistors 4.7k and 47k

9. Servo tester using 555 timer, BC547 and two Pushbuttons

Servo tester using 555 timer, BC547 and two Pushbuttons

 

OBJECTIVE: As the name of the project itself suggests, this circuit built using 555 timer checks whether your servo motor is working or not.

One pushbutton causes clockwise rotation whereas the other pushbutton causes anticlockwise rotation of Servo motor. Apart from 555 timer, you also need a BC547 transistor and couple of resistors to built this Servo tester.

Components you need for this project are:

1) 555 Timer

2)  Resistors 

3) Battery 9v

4) Continous Roatation Servo

5) Connecting Wires

6)  2 Push Switches

7) BC 547 Transistor

8) 100nF Capacitor

8. Tone Generator using 555 timer and potentiometer

Star Wars: Imperial March on Floppy Drives

OBJECTIVE: 555 timer generates signals as you rotate the potentiometer causing a series of tone generation from Speaker.   

To build this tone generator using 555 timer, you need a potentiometer along with a couple of Electrolytic and Ceramic capacitors.

Components you need for this project are:

1) 555 Timer

2)  Potentiometer 1 Mohm

3) Connecting Wires

4) 9v Battery

5) Breadboard

6) 1k resistor

7) Speaker

7. Water Level Indicator using 555 Timer and a Buzzer

 

OBJECTIVE: As soon as the level of water rises to a specific height, Buzzer starts beeping.                                                                   

This project was posted on Electronicshub.com.      

Two metal contacts, probe or wire is placed at different heights. One is always placed at the bottom of the container whereas other is placed at a position where as soon as the water reaches, buzzer starts beeping. We have to change the position of this contact according to our need.

As soon as water reaches the required level, circuit becomes closed i.e, current starts flowing through these contacts. And Buzzer indicates this by producing sound.

Components you need for this project are:

1)  555 Timer IC

2) Breadboard

3) Connecting Wires

4) Resistors

5) 9v Battery

6. LED chaser using 555 timer and 4017 IC

OBJECTIVE:  10 LEDs connected at the outputs of 4017 IC through 555 timer starts flashing one by one as soon as the circuit is powered on.

Since LEDs glows one by one, it seems like they are chasing each other.
