Device purpose:
This circuit was developed since a number of visitors of this website requested a timer capable of emitting a beep after one, two, three minutes and so on, for jogging purposes.
As shown in the Circuit diagram, SW1 is a 1 pole 9 ways Rotary Switch. Setting the switch in position 1, the Piezo sounder emits three short beeps every minute. In position 2 the same thing happens after 2 minutes, and so on, reaching a maximum interval of 9 minutes in position 9.

Notes:
Needing only one time set, rotary switch can be replaced by an hard-wired link.
A DIP-Switch can be used in place of the rotary type. Pay attention to use only a switch at a time, or the device could be damaged.
Varying R4 from 10K to 15K you can obtain more or less than three short beeps after the preset time delay.
To obtain a one-second beep only, after the preset time delay, disconnect pin 9 of IC1C from pin 9 of IC2 and connect it to pin 8 of IC1C.
