Sequential Turn Lights Driver

This device was designed on request and allows sequential operation of four Leds either to left or right direction, obtained by means of a 7555 CMos timer IC (IC1) wired as an astable multivibrator driving a Decade counter (IC2). This IC is set to count a sequence of four by connection of pin #10 to pin #15, but any sequence count in the 2-10 range can be set by choosing the appropriate pin connection. Obviously, LEDs, Transistors and their respective Base-limiting resistors must also be added or omitted accordingly.R1 is a variable resistor (Trimmer), used to set the desired speed of the LEDs. SW1 is a change-over switch that should already exist in your motorcycle, having a center-off position and Turn-left and Turn-right positions.D1, D3, D5 and D7 are the Turn-left LEDs; D2, D4, D6 and D8 are the Turn-right LEDs.Sequential Turn Lights Driver
