Loud electric buzzers are often used for alarms, doorbells and the like. These give off a shrill sound. Electric buzzers are sometimes even used when playing jokes or pranks with people.
You can normally buy loud electric buzzers in your local hardware stores. There is even a wide range of selections that you may choose from.
People who are more inventive choose to create their own version of the loud electric buzzer. This is actually ok because making an electric buzzer costs very little money. Also, it is very easy to assemble.
Here are the simple steps on how to make a loud electric buzzer:
Prepare the materials. You will need the following items when making a loud electric buzzer: scotch tape, 3v cell battery, 5v electric buzzer, scissors, and wire snips. Make sure you have everything that you need before you start with your project to avoid delays.
Remove the shrink wrap from the buzzer. The shrink wrap is made of polymer plastic film. It shrinks tightly over the buzzer when the shrink wrap is heated. You need to remove this from the buzzer before you proceed with the next step.
Use the wire snips. You need to use the wire snips when snipping the wires from the buzzer. Snip the wires about an inch from outside the base of the buzzer.
Position the buzzer. After you are done snipping the wires and removing all the excess wires from the buzzer, you need to set the buzzer upside down. This is the correct position for the buzzer.
Put the battery in place. The battery needs to be placed where the wires were previously located. To make a loud buzzing sound, you need to squeeze the battery to the buzzer. If it fails to give a buzzing sound, turn the battery around and try again. You need to make sure that the positive and negative ends of your battery are in line with the positive and negative sides of your buzzer.
Hold the materials in place. After you have successfully made the loud buzzing sound on your self-made electric buzzer, you can use the scotch tape to hold everything. This is to secure it in place and make sure that none of what you just assembled will move. Just use the right amount of scotch tape that you need.
By following these simple steps, you can experiment at home and make your own loud electric buzzer. You can in fact use old used materials that may be available in your house. If you are imaginative enough, you may disassemble old electronic buzzing gadgets. Get the materials that you may still use in creating a new electric buzzer. This way, you don’t need to spend much on the materials.
If you have children who are making science projects for school, you may suggest the idea of making a loud electric buzzer to them. You may even help them assemble it or you may probably just guide your children and give them instructions to follow.
