RC5 Remote Control

RC5 Remote Control
This circuit has been designed to switch lights and other loads on and off, using any RC5-compatible remote control. The receiver can be programmed to respond to any RC5-code, including the address (TV1, TV2, VCR1, etc.). The default address is ‘TV1 code 4’.As can be seen from the circuit diagram, the circuit is very simple and consists of four main parts: an IR receiver module, a microcontroller, a triac driver and a supply section.The supply for the circuit is derived directly from the mains, via C3, R2 and F1. The voltage is first pre-regulated to 12 V by zener D2, which is followed by voltage regulator IC1 to provide a perfectly regulated 5 V DC.
