Amplifier Timer

Amplifier Timer

This circuit turns-off an amplifier or any other device when a low level audio signal fed to its input is absent for 15 minutes at least.
Pushing P1 the device is switched-on feeding any appliance connected to SK1. Input audio signal is boosted and squared by IC2A & IC2B and monitored by LED D4. When D4 illuminates, albeit for a very short peak, IC3 is reset and restarts its counting. Pin 2 of IC3 remains in the low state, the two transistors are on and the relay operates. When, after a 15 minutes delay, no signal appeared at the input, IC3 ends its counting and pin 2 goes high. Q1 & Q2 stop conducting and the relay switches-off. The device is thus completely off as also are the appliances connected to SK1. C5 & R9 reset IC3 at power-on. P2 allows switch-off at any moment.

Notes:

Simply connect left or right channel tape output of your amplifier to J1.

You can employ two RCA input sockets wired in parallel to allow pick-up audio signals from both stereo channels.

The delay time can be varied changing R13 and/or C6 values.

Needing to operate a device not supplied by power mains, use a double pole relay switch, connecting the second pole switch in series to the device supply.
