6 Volt Regulator using IC 7806
Here is the elementary 6V 1A power supply circuit using 7806 IC. The 7806 three-terminal positive voltage regulator is available in the TO-220/D-PAK package making them useful in a wide range of applications. 7806 employs internal current limiting, thermal shut down and safe operating area protection, making it essentially indestructible. If proper heat sinking is provided, it can deliver over 1 ampere output current.

Voltage Regulator Circuit Diagram
Pin out of 7806
From the 78XX Voltage Regulator Integrated Circuit series, 7806 IC is used to regulate the output voltage to 6 Volts (Fixed constant value with minimal fluctuations). Many chip manufacturing companies provide this IC with different output current and over-current protection characteristics. Each IC may have different output current characteristics varying from 1 Amp to 1.5 Amps. Refer datasheets to know which one you will need to design your 6V regulator.
The 7806 IC is also available in T)-3, TO-252, TO-92 & SO-8 packages.
- If 2A bridge is not available make one with four 1N 4007 diodes.
- Fit a proper heat sink with 7806 if your circuit draws more than 400mA current.

pls i need a report project on smoke detector
what is the name or value or information about this bridge in the circuit … please i need a quick answer 🙂 ?
Good Day Sir,
Please I need a full detail on Multiple Voltage Regulator. I am a final year student of the University of Port-Harcourt , Nigeria. My project is based on Construction, Design and Analize ”MULTIPLY VOLTAGE REGULATOR”. My email is (email@example.com) Please I need urgent response from anyone.
Thanks so much
Hi You can use the circuit appeared earlier in this column.
i am making a secure digital access system using ibutton pls tell me how i use 7806 voltage regulator
Hi Shruthi the IC is a fixed 8 volt series pass regulator input for the IC can be between 11volt and 35volt. It has built in voltage reference, comparators, current sense limit, thermally safe area of operation and series pass transistors. kindly refer Motorola datasheet and its internal drawings.
plz xplain abot working of the 7806 regulator
i just want to know the calculation of the 6 Volt Regulator using IC 7806 u’ve post .. will u please send me the complete calculation to this email add… firstname.lastname@example.org
thanks verry verry mutch
please i need information/circuit diagram on fire detection and fire suppression systems in an aircraft specifically in the cargo compartment. thanks
thanks 4 for supports .I’m interested in electronics and i want to build a battery charger for 5v and 250mA please send to me circuits and calculation.I’m looking forward .
Hi GBENGA you can use the same circuit with additional PNP transistors. you require 6 volt at 4amps you can use the following principle as done for 12 volt.
Hi Sir, could You please assist by sending me a circuit diagram with the components on how to build a power supply that will power a 6volts 20watts bulb.
Hi Manjunath you can use this circuit, instead of transformer you can use your generator. (Pl check the circuit current capability as the mobile phone requires around 400mA at 6 volts)
I am using Generator as as Photocopier Stepper Motor, it is generating upto 18 volts AC, i converted it to DC using Bridge rectifier it showing 16 volts DC and now i wanted to reduce it for 6 volts (For mobiling battery charging). Is it possible from this circuit.
Please reply me i am very much interested
With warm regards
plz post pcb layout of dis circuit………
I need to lear more aobut the fire alarm system
hi am a final year Aeronautical engineering student,i would like you to send me some details on voltage regulators for 28 v dc.Thanks
please i need full detail on automatic voltage regulator, i am a final year student and project is base on construction of AVR. please i want send full detail to me through my email(email@example.com) thanks
i just want to know how to control current o/p.
cos i need .5A & .21A o/p, please post the calculations..
First of all 7806 alone can’t deliver more than 1A. You need extra circuitry to boost the current capability.Using a series pass transistor is a good option.
ohhh oh yaar
i want 6 volt to 3 volt converter 🙁
with warm regard
thanks 4 support yaar 🙂
with warm wish
