Mains Supply Failure Alarm - Whenever AC mains supply fails, this circuit alerts you by sounding an alarm. It also provides a backup light to help you find your way to the torch or the generator key in the dark. The circuit is powered directly by a 9V PP3/6F22 compact battery. Pressing of switch S1 provides the 9V power supply to the circuit. A red LED (LED2), in conjunction with zener diode ZD1 (6V), is used to indicate the battery power level. __ Learning Electronics

Medical timer warns when pills are due - 05/10/01 EDN-Design Ideas Some people need to take medication at precise, regular intervals. When you're in a hospital, a medical staff is present to ensure that you take your medication on time. But when you're taking medication at home, you must frequently look at the clock-a clear annoyance. When my wife was pregnant, she needed to take medication every two hours from 8 am to 10 pm. To help her time the two-hour intervals, I built the battery-powered circuit in Figure 1. The circuit derives its power from a 9V PP3 battery. All the ICs are CMOS
-based; the low power consumption of the circuit allows one-week autonomy. When you press the start button, BP1, a two-hour delay commences. Design by J Terrade

Micropower Thermocouple Signal Conditioner with Cold Junction Compensation - A thermistor, shown as R3, is used to monitor the cold junction temperature. Its resistance becomes smaller as the cold junction temperature increases. An increase in cold junction temperature will reduce the output voltage of the Type J thermocouple by 52uV/C.

Midnight Security Light - Most thefts happen after midnight hours when people enter the second phase of sleep called ‘paradoxical’ sleep. Here is an energy-saving circuit that causes the thieves to abort the theft attempt by lighting up the possible sites of intrusion (such as kitchen or backyard of your house) at around 1:00 am. It automatically resets in the morning. The circuit is fully automatic and uses a CMOS
IC CD 4060 to get the desired time delay. Light-dependent resistor LDR1 controls reset pin 12 of IC1 for its automatic action. __ Electronics Projects for You

Mini Alarm-Suitable for doors & windows, Portable anti-bag-snatching unit - This circuit, enclosed in a small plastic box, can be placed into a bag or handbag. A small magnet is placed close to the reed switch and connected to the hand or the clothes of the person carrying the bag by means of a tiny cord. If the bag is snatched abruptly, the magnet looses its contact with the reed switch, SW1 opens, the circuit starts oscillating and the loudspeaker emits a loud alarm sound. A complementary transistor-pair is wired as a high efficiency oscillator, directly driving a small loudspeaker. Low part-count and 3V battery supply allow a very compact construction. __ Learning Electronics
Miniature Loop Alarm - A few months ago, I decided to build a compact, yet effective alarm. My demands were:- simple construction, reliable operation, very small power consumption, and, most of all, small size. I started with CMOS
logic gates, but was soon forced to abandon the concept after a few unsuccessful (and far too complicated) attempts. Then I suddenly realized that a simple transistor switch might do the job and I was right.
