View Full Version : Back in the saddle again

Well, my saddle anyway.

In process or rebuilding the r/c transducer lift circuit. The china made wires had turned green and white over the past few years and were causing intermittent problems and was also binding up some.

I basically started over with the electronics and am using a microcontroller instead of relay controller. I wrote the control program for the unit during eye surgery recovery. I found it hard to concentrate with a patch on one eye.

Wiring in progress. This keeps me busy and off the streets.

The unit is a modified Da Ducer apparatus from my pal Rickie from Ky.

I did this because "it was there to do". I mostly used junk stuff for parts I had laying around.

Hoping to see you and Miss Brenda Saturday at the ShinDig.

Glad to see you using that Rocket Science again.

Cane Pole,

Have you fooled with the Arduino units for open source hardware? Those things are way too cool - and cheap!

Cane Pole,

Yes. I use numerous Arduino shields. This particular unit has two Arduino relay shields. Cheap as you mentioned and work good too.

I have several Parallax BS2 project boards, So I am using it as the controller. Easy programming as this controller is nothing but a sequencer circuit.
