Chicken Coop Automation

Automating a chicken coop with sensors and actors, using an Arduino MKR1000 and the Blynk internet dashboard. Introduction To protect our new chickens from the different predators, an automatic door is needed. We had a look on the available solutions on the market, but none could meet our requirements: Remote monitoring and control by using an app Possibility to add additional sensors and actors to measure ...

Driving a DC Motor with an Arduino & the L293D Motor Driver

In this tutorial, we'll be looking at how to power and drive a DC motor with an L293D and an Arduino. Story In this tutorial, we'll be looking at how to power and drive a DC motor with an L293D and an Arduino (we're using the Arduino MKR 1000 here, but you can use any Arduino that provides enough voltage for your motor, and has 2 digital output pins). The L293D is a 16-pin Motor Driver IC which can control ...

4Duino Servo Control

In this project, we will control the angular position of the DC Servo Motor via an I/O port (with PWM output capability) and touch knob. The 4Duino resistive touch display is used as a means for a graphical interface to control the angular positon of the Servo. Servo motor is a very useful device for hobbyists and robot enthusiasts as it allows your project to have moving parts. Servo motors are unique, as ...

DC Motor featuring 4Duino-24

In this project, we will learn how to control the speed and direction of a DC motor via I/O ports with PWM output capability, a L293D quad half-h drivers IC and 4D Workshop widgets. In its simplest form, a DC motor has two wires which is connected to a power supply. Depend on whichever way current flows in the DC motor, this will determine the direction in which the motor will spin. Motors are often used in ...

Arduino DC Motor Speed and Direction Control using Relays and MOSFET

In this project we control direction and speed of a 24v high current motor using Arduino and two relays. No power switches are needed for this circuit, just two push buttons and in Potentiometer to control the direction and speed of DC Motor. One push button will rotate motor clockwise and other will rotate it counter clockwise. One n-channel MOSFET is required to control speed of motor. Relays are used to ...
