I have received a number of emails requesting schematics for infa-red remotes. So here is one.
This remote transmits a tone using an infa-red LED. This tone is decoded by the receiver. Since
the receiver only switches when it "hears" the tone, there are no accidental activations.
Schematic For Transmitter

Schematic For Receiver

Part Description Substitutions
R1 1 22K 1/4W Resistor
R2 1 1 Meg 1/4W Resistor
R3 1 1K 1/4W Resistor
R4, R5 2 100K 1/4W Resistor
R6 1 50K Pot
C1, C2 2 0.01uF 16V Ceramic Disk Capacitor
C3 1 100pF 16V Ceramic Disk Capacitor
C4 1 0.047uF 16V Ceramic Disk Capacitor
C5 1 0.1uF 16V Ceramic Disk Capacitor
C6 1 3.3uF 16V Electrolytic Capacitor
C7 1 1.5uF 16V Electrolytic Capacitor
Q1 1 2N2222 NPN Silicon Transistor 2N3904
Q2 1 2N2907 PNP Silicon Transistor
Q3 1 NPN Phototransistor
D1 1 1N914 Silicon Diode
IC1 1 LM308 Op Amp IC
IC2 1 LM567 Tone Decoder
LED1 1 Infa-Red LED
RELAY 1 6 Volt Relay
S1 1 SPST Push Button Switch
Two 1.5V batteries in
B1 1 3 Volt Battery
Board, Sockets For ICs, Knob For R6,
Battery Holder
RELAY 1 6 Volt Relay

1. To adjust the circuit, hold down S1 while pointing LED1 at the receiver. Adjust R6 until
you hear the relay click.
2. You can increase range by using a high output LED for LED1.
3. Bright light will stop the receiver from responding to the transmitter.
4. There is an error in the schematic. There shuold be a 1 megaohm resistor between pin 3
of IC1 and ground. This provides a 0 volt reference to bias the IC.

Thanks for the great circuit. It worked after I did some tuning of my own.. First the 1 megaohm
didnt work for me so I had to find a suitable resistor that worked. Also a precise resistance is
required from the resistance pot to make it work.. But overall it worked great.. Thanks again..
Keep it up..

I just went to the store ans asked for any phototransistor...The guy said I was crazy because he
doesnt know what to sell me from the milluion parts he has. He asked for a part number...can
someone give me the pert number they used or tried. The guy wouldnt even sell me a random
one...I asked him but he refused. Please someone help me out.

Could someone please help me. I am a beginner at this kind of stuff and I just want to make a
one button simple IR remote. I have an IR receiver module. Is this an IR triggered switch in

Hi I`ve a gradually voltage increased LED on the transmission side. For this i need a IR / RF
transmitter and receiver circuit

I'm in my way to finish the connection of the circuit but i'm asking how can i let the NPN
phototransistor receive the sign from the infra-red with longer distance pls help me in this thank
you... dear

not working for me.. I used NTE3122 phototransistor.. 1 megaohm resistor between pin 3 of IC1
and ground.. tried with and without R6.. all the parts I used are the same as in the list except
2N2222, unfortunately I can't find them here in montreal so I tried PN2222 and 2N3904.. I don't
know if the problem is from the transmitter or receiver.. but when I touch the phototransistor
pins with a jumper, as soon as I release this jumper, the relay receive a pulse and it activate for a
short time, but doesn't stay on.. I also tried many different IR leds on the transmitter..

I have a car which moves forward and back word dirction. But now problem is that it could go
backworkd direction the technical details of car as Circuit No JM67 using transistor No. S8050
S8550. can help me regarding circuit diagram of the same, please.

Hi im trying to build a simple IR remote which sends a short pulse to a receiver, which in turn
will send a signal to turn a motor. At the moment i have a debounced switch sending a signal to
an IRED. I was then thinking to use a phototransistor (incorprated in a common emitter
amplifier) to drive a motor. The circuit here look really good but is more complicated that i
invisaged it would be. Can you tell me if there is some thing im missing? Thanks, kind regards.
