Sometimes it’s hard to take people seriously. They tell you they will never change and boom as soon as they say it, things get awkward. Smh and fists to the air.
Oh and my new year’s resolution is to really value and be grateful for what I have. Read more.write more. Research more. Draw more. Take more pictures of stuff. I’ll be back later.
Ever wanted to make a custom circle pcb in EagleCad? Heres how… and pretty much any custom shape using SketchUp. Check out my Video. Hope you find it useful.
I needed to take some close up pictures but they coming out dark. So i remember seeing a ring of LEDs. So i decided to make one.
Sorry but i forgot to take pictures of how i cut the pcb.
With the progress that I have made with the Sunpak AP-200W, I thought it would be nice to write software to control it. I currently have available the commands to tilt up/Down, Pan left/Right. Number of pictures and interval.
Well, here are some screenshots. of how it looks I will post video of it working with the Sunpak Pan/Tilt head. I will also publish all working Arduino files and vb.Net Project.
Yes! I have made progress. Now the Sunpak has a demo mode. completely autonomous. When it is plugged in it starts a Demo mode. Here is a Video I took. Sorry for bad quality i grabbed the first cam i saw and it was a little FujiFilm J10.
I came across this little monitor, it had no cable no power adapter and no remote. After not being able to find the proper cable and info online, I decided it was time to open it up. Continue reading Xenarc 480-TSV Cable Pin Out
I have made some improvements to the firmware i will leave the code below but first some of the changes.
Now Limit switches are identified.IR Receivers are working and have decoding capabilities.I have added “Mode” support or IR learning via serial Monitor.Error codes via Power LED blinking. Continue reading Sunpak AP-200W Arduino Hack (Part 4)
Well today I started to edit the sketch that will control the firmware for the Sunpak AP-200W. I have made progress. I have full control of motors and the LEDs’. I’m trying to get the IR sensors to work, but can’t seem to decide whether or not it should be controlled by IR or push buttons or even serial communication. Right now all this arduino sketch is doing is tilting and panning. Next version will implement button presses and Ir signals (Remote). Continue reading Sunpak AP-200W Arduino Hack (Part 3)
