5-30 minuts timer circuit using IC 555

Here is a 555 timer circuit project. You can use it for the snooze alarm with a buzzer.

When on-time 5, 10, 15, and 30 minutes or even 1 hour.

It is easy to make and portable with small PCBs.


If you want to control other loads. It is easy with a relay directly. Because the output of 555 has a maximum current to 200mA.

How it works

5-30 minuts timer circuit using IC 555

When we turn on switch-S1 to enter a power supply to the circuit.  It will be ready to go.

The parts have a different function.

The circuit includes IC1-555 Mono Stable (timer) for the delay.

Switches S3 S6—choose a time as we want

  • If turns on S3 for 5 minutes. Then, turn off the S3.
  • To turns on S4 for 10 minutes.  Then, turn off the S4.
  • Next, it turns on S5 for 15 minutes. Then, turn off the S5.
  • Last, turns on S6 is scheduled for 30 minutes.

This project uses the principle of monostable multivibrator 555. It works with a delay charge and discharges completely.

When in time that setting. It will send a signal to Pin 3 is low. But can power buzzer-BZ1 beeps out.

The time value is determined by the value R2, R3, R4, R5, and C2.

If you want to set up a long time. It increases the R and C.

The time is short. If it reduced the R and C.

How to build this project

This project is very easy. Because of using a few components. As shown in Figure 2 is PCB layout and the component layout.


the PCB layout of 5-30 minuts timer alarm circuit using IC555

You must be careful about some devices with terminals. For example, IC-555, Electrolytic capacitors, and buzzer. 

They will are connected to match terminals only.

Figure 2 is the PCB layout and the components layout

This project worked my son test it on the breadboard. Below!

He tests at 5 minutes.

Adding Relay to control more

If you want to control more load. It is an easy way with helping of Relay. Look at the image below.

This is a simple universal timer project. You can use a relay to connect with the buzzer. To control other loads that you want.
