Weather Monitor

This Instructable shows you how to build a micro-controller based weather monitoring device. Built on the Arduino Uno board it can easily be extended and modified should you have additional sensors at hand. Main requirements: - Measure temperature (accuracy +/- 0,5 degree Kelvin) - Measure barometric air pressure (+/- 0,1 Pascal) - Display measured values on a LCD on demand by pressing a button Main compone ...

Analog Read Voltage using Arduino

This example shows you how to read an analog input on Pin 0, convert the values from analogRead() into voltage, and print it out to the serial monitor.  Circuit: image developed using Fritzing. For more circuit examples, see the Fritzing project page Connect the three wires from the potentiometer to your Arduino board. The first goes to ground from one of the outer pins of the potentiometer. The second goes ...

Accelerometer powered LED dress

Let's be honest for a moment, doesn't everyone want a dress that lights up at your very whim? No? Alright, well I do. It's pretty straightforward, though the programming gets a wee bit tricky. So pick up your pencil, sketch out a design and then we'll talk parts.Here Step 1: Material [box color="#985D00" bg="#FFF8CB" font="verdana" fontsize="14 " radius="20 " border="#985D12" float="right" head="Major Compo ...

Digital thermometer using arduino

Digital thermometer using arduino and LM35. This article is about a simple three digit digital thermometer using arduino. Range of this thermometer is from 0°C to 99.9°C. There is also a provision for displaying the temperature in °F scale. Three terminal analog temperature sensor LM35 is used as the sensor here. LM35 can measure temperatures between -55°C to +155°C. The supply voltage range is from 4V to 3 ...

Temperature Sensor DS18B20

Electronic Brick, Waterproof and other Versions NOTE: There are different-appearing versions but they work the same. This is an electronic thermometer which has high accuracy over a wide range (accurate to ±0.5°C over the range of -10°C to +85°C) (Workable from -55°C to +125°C). You can locate these thermometer chips up to 100M away from your Arduino. Shorter cables can be just 2 wires. NOTE: There must be ...

How to make (and connect) a soft potentiometer

This instructable will tell you how to make and connect a soft potentiometer to a microcontroller, in particular we will connect it to a Lilypad Arduino. In our case soft potentiometer means a potentiometer made of a textile conductive ribbon. What you need: 1. soft conductive textile ribbon. The important thing here is that the tape must have some resistance along its leght. So if you apply a multimeter yo ...

Midi VU meter, LM3914, Arduino, PWM

Hello everybody, I've been working on a midi controller for some time now, Midi OUT hasn't been a problem, but for Midi IN i had to take some more time. i've used this circuit for midi input but i've used a 4n25: original thread @ http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1187962258/ it works great! but for my project i need VU meters, i thought this wouldn't be a problem, because i could easily say t ...

Digital Arduino Voltmeter with Temperature

Step 1: The case I dug out an appropriate case from the dumpster, milled out a rectangular hole for the lcd, and drilled holes to mount the LCD and the Arduino. I used brass standoffs and fiber washers to prevent shorts. Then I gave the whole case a quick spray of flat black to cover the scratched and scraped gray that originally covered the case. Step 2: Voltage Divider The first part of the code and elect ...

DIY wattmeter with an Arduino

DIY wattmeter with an Arduino It is difficult or sometimes even impossible to measure power and energy with ordinary multimeters. To carry out such a measurement reliable and accurate, a special wattmeter is required. Because these meters are very expensive, a cheaper solution is presented here as a DIY wattmeter based on a Arduino Nano board. Parameters This wattmeter measures the real power, apparent powe ...

Arduino Digital Voltmeter 0V to 30V

Here is a useful circuit for Arduino lovers and experimenters. It is a simple digital voltmeter, which can safely measure input dc voltages in 0 to 30V range. The Arduino board can be powered from a standard 9V battery pack, as usual. As you may well know, Arduino’s analog inputs can be used to measure DC voltage between 0 and 5V (when using the standard 5V analog reference voltage) and this range can be in ...

ARDUINO RF power & SWR meter

This sketch will readout RF power and SWR from any SWR bridge (for example 'monimatch' type). As this 'monimatch' type of bridge is frequency dependant, the meter must be calibrated for every band. Because my primary interest was for VHF/UHF/SHF,  I have foreseen positions for 6m, 4m, 2m, 70 cm, 23cm and 13cm bands - but you can use the ARDUINO readout on HF as well. If you intend to build a HF or VHF bridg ...

HOW TO MAKE CUSTOM GEAR FOR LINEAR MOTION

In the manufacturing industry, a wide variety of devices used at home or in the garden has been experiencing challenges in automating linear displacement of any of the items used. For instance, For example, an automatic opening of gates, automatic unlocking and changing positions of mirrors concentrating solar collection might be facing the problem of linear displacement. There is the feature known as the f ...
