Infrared Remote control Timer


          This Infrared Remote control Timer circuit has two sections which is IR Transmitter and IR Receiver. By using this circuit, we can access the appliances using Infrared radiations at a particular distance.


Transmitter section

  • The astable multivibrator NE555 (IC1) is used to generate a 10 kHz modulated IR signal.
  • The output of IC1 is connected to the base of PNP transistor T1 via resistor R2.
  • Two infrared LEDs (IR1 and IR2) are connected in series between the collector (via  R3) and ground.
  • When switch S1 is pressed, the IR LEDs transmit the modulated IR signal of 10-11 kHz.
  • This frequency can be changed with the help of VR1 potentiometer.

Receiver section

  • Two photodiodes (IR3 and IR4) receive the IR signal transmitted by the IR transmitter.
  • Transistors T2 and T3 amplify the weak signal. The amplified signal is filtered by capacitors C6 and C7.
  • The amplified and filtered signal is now fed to the inverting input pin 2 of op amp IC2 (IC 741).
  • The output of IC2 is further connected to trigger pin 2 of timer NE555 (IC3) that is used as a monostable multivibrator whose frequency may be varied with the help of potentiometer VR3.


  • When switch S1 of the transmitter is pressed, the modulated IR rays are generated, which are received by photodiodes in the receiver section and amplified by the amplifier circuit.
  • The output of op amp goes low to trigger the monostable. Then high output at pin 3 of IC3 activates the two changeover relay RL via transistor T3 (BC548) for a preset time.
  • The on/off time can be set in the timer with the help of VR3 and C10. Switch S2 is used to reset the monostable.
  • If you want to turn the appliance on for a predefined time, connect the appliance via relay RL(a). If you want to turn the appliance off for a preset time, connect the appliance via relay RL(b). The timer can be reset by pressing reset switch S2.
  • The circuit works up to 3 metres without using any focusing lens. However, you can increase the operating range by using focusing lens.
