I've seen alot of people wanting microcontroller-free relay bypass boards. There's a few designs out there, but most of them seem overly complicated, so I designed this one. It uses two 2N3904 as a simple switch flip flop and debouncer. It's not perfect (the occasional mistrigger happens) but overall it works pretty well for such a simple design. :)
I'm selling a Relay Bypass PCB in the shop for an improved version (with solid debouncing) with a smaller size than the vero version. Check it out. :)

I've built two of these but I'm struggling to get them working. My effect is working correctly, the relay itself is switching, and the LED is operational, but it doesn't seem to pass signal. I'm using a Takamisawa NA12W-k relay and 2n2222 transistors. Is there possibly a schematic available to help me verify my work?

Send me an email, and I'll sent your the schematic. Best regards / Fredrik

Is there a way to alter this layout to use a 5v relay. I have recently purchased a bunch for another build. I only needed one but it was cheaper to buy more

Thank you for the reply. Is this for a latching or non latching relay?

It's for a non-latching relay. The transistors act as both a button debounce and latching flipflop that controls the state of the relay.

Great little board. Easy build and works. One question/ comment. The schematic says "when turning a effect on it will toggle back to bypass if you hold the switch too long." I found this to be true but it's definitely less than 1 second and it's back to bypass. Probably close to .5 seconds holding the switch and it jumps back. Is there any way to extend this time? Thanks!

Increase the value of the electrolytic (4.7uF) to extend the time it takes before it switches back.

Would this work in place of a DPDT that a Klon circuit needs, like this one here:

Hello, how is everything? Does this relay work?
12/12/2021 06:43:23 pm
I try with regulator 78L05 and 5vdc relay, but it doesn't click the relay, sound like its back to off faster.. so what part i must to modified ??
