This circuit uses a flashing LED in the role of the dial input in favor of a 4017 decade counter. mainstream flashing LEDs (eg, DSE cat Z-4044) jiffy on with reference to 2Hz so the outputs Q0-Q9 resolve cycle through on to facilitate rate. For pattern, Q0 will bear on for partly a back up, followed by Q1, then Q2 and that up to Q8 then it will start by the side of Q0 again. Up to nine outputs can survive used. If you would like fewer outputs, link up an earlier output to MR, pin 15. If MR is not used, connect it to 0V.
Uses in support of the circuit include sequencing another strings of Christmas illumination and that. The resistor from CP0 to ground can befall anywhere from almost 330O to about 10kO. drop standards self-control cause the LED to jiffy further brightly if with the aim of is necessary. With a 4.7kO resistor at the same time as given away, the device input CP0 (pin 14) will alternate flanked by about 2V and 7V. To drive heaps of up to 40W on up to 60V, join each one output to the gate of a 2N3055E before equivalent Mosfet (MTP3055E and so on), as publicized in place of Q0.
