DIY Arduino Soldering Station

In this project I will show you how to create an Arduino based soldering station for a standard JBC soldering iron. During the build I will talk about thermocouples, AC power control and zero point detection. Let's get started! Step 1: Watch the Video! The video gives you all the basic information you need to build a soldering station. In the next steps though I will present you additional, helpful informat ...

CHARACTERISING A POTENTIOMETER WITH A STEPPER MOTOR

Potentiometers, or variable resistors, are a standard component that we take for granted. If it says “10k log” on a volume pot, than we fit and forget. But if like [Ben Holmes] you are modelling electronic music circuitry, some greater knowledge is required. To that end he’s created a rig for characterising a potentiometer to produce a look-up table of its values. It’s a simple enough set-up in which a volt ...

Evaluation board for STSPIN820 stepper motor driver

The EVALSP820-XS is a compact and easy to use evaluation board for the STSPIN820, the world’s smallest 45 V microstepping motor driver rated at 2.5 A. It provides a very compact solution to evaluate the performance of the STSPIN820 stepper motor driver with a minimum set of additional equipment and without the need of additional devices. The hardware is fully compatible to be used together with RAMPS or oth ...

Excellent starter kit for people interested in learning about Arduino

Arduino is an easy-to-learn prototyping platform that lets you create interactive electronic projects. This Arduino compatible kit is the one I recommend to people who ask me how to get started. The reason I recommend it is because it's very cheap and it has a bunch of components that would cost a lot more if you were to purchase them separately. Two things it doesn't have, but should if you really want to ...

Build an Arduino-Controlled AM/FM/SW Radio

Combine the Si4844-A10 analog-tuned radio receiver with an Arduino to make a full-featured multiband radio. The idea of a single chip radio is intriguing. The prospect is especially interesting to me because, frankly, I envy the analog skills I associate with building a radio receiver. When I browsed the circuit literature in the area, I came across the Silicon Labs collection. One of their chips, the Si484 ...

Automatic Irrigation System using Arduino

In this project, we are going to build an automatic irrigation system using Arduino which senses the moisture of the soil and opens or closes the valve according to the moisture value. The moisture value and the valve status is shown on the Nokia 5110 LCD display. Before we proceed, let’s take a look at another project – a plant watering system using Arduino, which is very similar to our application. You ma ...

Arduino Gear Motor Interface Using IC L293D

In this article, we are publishing a project which explains different aspects of Arduino-Gear motor interface. Gear motor is a specially designed DC motor whose gear assembly helps in increasing the torque and reducing the speed. Compared to a normal DC motor, maximum rpm a gear motor can produce is less. But they have the advantage that by using the correct combination of gears, its rpm can be reduced to a ...
