This is a dead easy question for most of you! But I'm relatively new to circuit design, so I'd just like to ask whether this circuit might work (at all!)
Here's a picture of the circuit
Basically, what it's trying to do is if the push to make switch is NOT triggered, then it should sound the buzzer, and light the LED. When the push to make switch IS triggered, then it does nothing. The toggle switch on top triggers whether the circuit is running or not, as checked by the AND gate.
It's meant to be an alarm for something of value, ideally, the push to make switch is under a glass cube that encases the item, when the glass cube is moved, the alarm sounds!
Specific components aren't really needed at the moment, in generalized terms, would this circuit do the job it's trying to do? Or would it fail miserably!
Also, if you don't understand my horrible drawing, then:
- The two circles with the line on top, is the push to make switch
- The triangle is the op amp (comparator)
- The bent line connected to 2 circles on the top is the toggle switch
- The box with 1 rounded edge is the AND gate
- The rounded triangle on the right is a buzzer
- The thin rectangle is a resistor
- The ugly LED symbol is the LED.
Thanks for any and all responses!
