This kit contains all the components to make a simple and reliable alternating flasher circuit using a 555 timer to alternately flash two LEDs.

In this circuit the 555 timer is used as an astable (oscillator) to directly drive two LEDs and to flash them alternately.

The kit is quick and easy to assemble even by absolute beginners. It provides a quick affordable way to add some electronic interest to a variety of projects for many hobbies and especially model railways.

The LEDs can be moved further away from the circuit board by installing wires between the circuit board and the Leds.

It is possible to alter the resistors in this kit to change the flash time and the brightness of the LEDs.

The image shows this kit assembled. It will be sent to you as a kit of components that will require soldering together.
