I need to build a simple delay off timer. When the input is triggered (pulse only) the output must go high and stay high for a period of say 1 hour or 4 hours or selectable. When the input is triggered again, the output timing is restarted.
Any idea's? Would a 555 timer work? Not sure about the long (...)

I wouldnt use any of those for your application.
You want a loud buzzer, well you can get a cheap piezo that'll produce 100db's, which is annoyingly loud, getting that from your own circuit requires complexity.
I'd use the above piezo on a monostable to give the time delay.
A standard monostable 555 circuit would work fine, you'd need a 22

Sorry for being so unclear.
The fan is mains (220V) operated, and the toggle switch is part of the mains power, switching the lights on-off.
The delay off electronics is 12 V operated, and gets its power from the permanent phase and zero lines.
The coupling between the low V and the high V circuits is made with relays.

i have uploaded a corected version to
so check it out.
The idea is that you calculate the time on for the 555 timer i added to the time it takes to scan through the LED sequence and the time off to be the delay u want.

Read up on the 555 timer chip. This will give you the delay you need for a small LED to remain alight for say 30 seconds after you close the door. You will have to take a trigger from the courtisey light to activate the 555 timer

Say i want to have a motor running, and i want to hook up a 555 timer so that when i turn off the motor switch, the motor continues to run for the time i have set on my 555 timer. I dunno how to hook this up, especially as i don't want to interupt the power to the motor, not even momentarily as i turn (...)

I think you can use a 555 with a relay.

You really need to post your schematic. No one is going to know the exact Maplin circuit you "robbed".
Take a look at:
This is the basic 555 monostable circuit. One problem is charge stuck in C1. If you close the switch for several seconds, open the switch and then close it again quick

When the compressor stops you have the falling edge of 12V signal that operates the compressor ..
You can use it (through a capacitive coupling) to trig the 555 timer (simple negative edge one-shot) to generate a 2-minute delay ..
Then, you can connect the output of the 555 and the voltage that operates the compressor (...)

Power-on delay can be realized in several ways, for example with the very popular 555-timer, but I would like to encourage you to use a small microcontroller, some times called the 555 of the new millennium, namely the PICAXE08 ..
You shouldn’t have problems in buying it in Australia (Altronics) ..

I want to add a timer circuit to a led flashlight so after I press the 'on' switch it will shut off after a few minutes automatically
1. It has to be small
2. it works on 3 AAA cells possibly nimh so v~1.2*3=3.6V
3. no drainage during the many many hours when the light is off (either main switch off or (...)

use monostable circuit!
u can learn more about the 555 timer on thousands of sites on the internet ! and even use/download the program by which u can automatically calculate component values for your required timeout

I'd like to design a circuit such that at first, the circuit is completely powered off. The user pushes a switch, which injects power into the circuit. Then a mechanism maintains the power active, even if the switch has been released. At a later about 3 seconds, when the circuit does no longer need power,
it cuts its own power and sleeps u

You can use TSOP1738 IR receivers. They are easily available and are commonly used in TV remote control receivers. But they are excited only by an IR radiation of frequency 38kHz. So, you also need a 38Khz astable oscillator using 555 timer.Refer the following circuit for emitter. For that entry and exit thing try using a flip-flop as Magnatro

Do you mean you need a delayed starter?
You could use a 555 timer and connect it's output to a transistor to power your LC circuit.

I need to make a simple device which will change the current`s direction after a certain interval (i.e 5 seconds.).
Can you give me some idea or scheme of it`s construction? (Something with 555 timer would be OK.)
Thank you in advance...

if you want to do it by cheap cost just use a relay only and avoid using triac
by using microcontroller you can create 5sec delay ad trigerr your relay only for 5sec and after that make your microcontroller pin as low
or you can create it using 555 timer if you dont want to use microcontroller but the problem is after very 5 sec pulse will (...)

For a first guess, have a look at 555 timer application notes. If you want zero current consumption in off-state, a different approach might be required, e.g. using CMOS logic ICs or transistors.

You can use some kind of timer or counter supplied and started from the first regulator (4060 or 555). The output of the timers start the second regulator.
If the regulators you use do not have an On/off control you can use a P mosfet to connect the output to the load.

Type general family of circuit you need is called a missing pulse detector. Below is a link to an example. This can be done with existing timer or oscillator chips, like the 555. Or, as you mentioned, it can be done using a small microcontroller. Using an exisiting multivibrator chip or timer is usually faster to design. However, the (...)

This is a clever circuit and practical as well.
However it puts low-power circuitry in close contact with high power...
In such a case you need to ensure cooperation between the two.
This circuit should be tested in sections. The timer circuit should be tested for proper operation without being hooked up to the welding circuit.
Then take the n
