Police Siren using IC 555 Circuit Schematic Diagram


This circuit will produce sound similar to police siren using astable multivibrator mode of IC timer 555. This circuit is controlled by 2 timer ICs and 2 resistor variables. First IC timer will produce 1 Hz frequency which will increase and decrease periodically. The second IC timer serves as periodic ON/OFF switch. VR1 has a function to control the speed of the rhythm, and VR2 control the frequency of the siren. Here is the schematic :
