how to measure home ac current 110v / 200v with arduino

The cool thing about an ACS712 is that current is measured is measured in two directions.  What this means is that if we sample fast enough and long enough,  we sure to find the peak in one direction and the peak in another direction. With both peaks known, it is a matter of knowing the shape of the waveform to calculate the current.   In the case of line or mains power, we know that waveform to be a SINE w ...

Create laser range finder using arduino

[highlight bgcolor="ffbb00"]I have collected 2 methods to create laser range finder, one is very simple but for hobbiest the first one using arduino clock but it comes with errors. Its just to conceptulize how we can create range finder. The second one with the The 7558 and 7555 Series Rangefinder/Processor professional one. It uses already built kits we only have to use these to developer arduino based ran ...

UT204 is able to measure DC current and also True RMS

company UNI-Trend is a near relative to the UT203. multimeter. Already UT203 provides a lot of user comfort and a very pleasant feature - measuring of a DC current without interrupting a measured circuit. However UT204 is different from its “weaker” brother in one essential thing - it enable measuring of a true RMS value of alternating signals (TRMS). As we know, usual multimeters usually deploy a simple re ...

Measure Capacitance with Arduino

This tutorial provides a guide on how to set up an Arduino to measure the capacitance of a capacitor. This can be useful if the capacitor is unlabeled or if it is self-built. Capacitance is an object's ability to store an electric charge. Reasonably, this object is referred to as a capacitor. A capacitor that stores this charge in an electric field between two conductive plates is known as a parallel plate ...

Wearable sensor measures UV index

The latest addition to STMicroelectronics’ portfolio of environmental sensors, the UVIS25 provides a direct digital output of UVI (ultraviolet index)—the international measurement of the strength of ultraviolet radiation, primarily from the sun, at a given place and time. Aimed at wearable devices, smart-phone, and tablet applications, the UVIS25 is sensitive to UV waves in the 200-nm to 400-nm range. This ...
