As a type of electronic buzzer with integrated structure, buzzers, which are supplied by DC power, are widely used in computers, printers, photocopiers, alarms, electronic toys, automotive electronic devices, telephones, timers and other electronic products for voice devices. Buzzers can be categorized as active and passive ones (see the following picture). Turn the pins of two buzzers face up, and the one with a green circuit board is a passive buzzer, while the other enclosed with a black tape is an active one.

The difference between an active buzzer and a passive buzzer is:
An active buzzer has a built-in oscillating source, so it will make sounds when electrified. But a passive buzzer does not have such source, so it will not tweet if DC signals are used; instead, you need to use square waves whose frequency is between 2K and 5K to drive it. The active buzzer is often more expensive than the passive one because of multiple built-in oscillating circuits.


  • A passive buzzer that needs square signals of 2k-5k to drive, for it has no built-in oscillating source, and then makes sounds when energized. 
  • Use an S8550 PNP transistor for drive. 
  • Controllable sound frequency – it can make the buzzer beep like Do, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La, Ti. 
  • Working voltage: 3 - 5V; PCB size: 2.0 x 2.0 cm. 
  • With power light and indicator of digital signal output.
