Control servo motors with potentiometers and Arduino

Hi there. This is my first instructable, so I hope you will be patient with me if I make any mistakes setting it up.It is written for beginners like myself, so the more advanced among you can skip a lot of this and just get to wiring it up. The goal I set myself was to be able to control the robot shown in this web site: http://bocabearingsworkshop.blogspot.co.id/2015/08... I needed to be able to control 3 ...

Kristall 511 solder wire won´t dirt your PCB

ou, who are at production of electronic devices, know, how important is a choice of a suitable solder. A designer of a given device might not focus on a solder used at soldering of the first protoype, bu tin a production it will manifest itself – sooner or later. Not that some solder would be miraculous and otherone unusable, but each one is suitable for something else. Similarly lie in other segments, even ...

Tutorial 18: Two Wire Arduino Knight Rider

This tutorial shows how to interface eight LEDs to an Arduino using only two Arduino pins. This is made possible by using a PCF8574 I/O expander IC. A "Knight Rider" display is shown on the LEDs. Prerequisites Complete tutorial 4 – Arduino Knight Rider. Be able to use DIP IC packages, e.g. from tutorial 17. Components In addition to an Arduino Uno board, USB cable, wire links and a breadboard, you will need ...

iButtonLink T-Sense 1-wire sensor (Maxim DS18B20) + PIC 18F14K22

I came across a stash of iButton T-sense 1-wire sensors.. so I grabbed a couple and decided to check out 1-wire. Maxim makes a 1-wire device called the DS18B20. It’s a 9-12 bit temperature sensor with the possibility of being powered by parasitic power from the data line. This cuts the signal path down to a single DQ line and a return. A company called iButtonLink produces a nice little wrapper around this ...

How to wire an arduino-based 3-axis CNC machine using arduino

I've seen a number of tutorials about how to build the platform for a 3-axis CNC milling machine.  I have not seen anyone tackle the tricky subject of the electronics. Here now is my attempt to do so. Step 1: Parts You'll need: - an arduino. I chose duemilanova. (depends on the board you get) - 3 stepper motors.  I chose NEMA 17s . ($15/ea) - 3 EasyDrivers from Sparkfun . ($15/ea) - some Cat5 ($2?) - a 12V ...

Drive by wire go kart using Arduino

I just got a new go kart engine, i went from 6hp to 10hp. This new kohler engine I got I think was not built to put on a go kart, so I had some trouble finding a way to attach the gas petal. Well after a few days of not really figuring anything out, I remembered that I had gotten an arduino about a week ago, and maybe I could use this to help me out. Step 1: Power and safety circuit below is a diagram of ho ...
