Nixie thermometer – RGB leds

Nixie thermometer – RGB leds

luca January 29, 2016 0

My thermometer will have RGB leds beneath every nixie tube, to be able to light them up with different colors. I decided to use pre-built modules, which include the RGB led and also all the required

Nixie thermometer – let’s display the temperature

Nixie thermometer – let’s display the temperature

luca January 23, 2016 2

Today I wrote a sketch that merges the previous ones: reads the temperature from a thermistor (connected to PIN A0) and displays it driving two nixie tubes. I also added a third nixie, to display symbol °C.

Nixie thermometer – the temperature sensor

luca January 16, 2016 0

After having learned how to drive a nixie tube with Arduino, today I’ll show you how to read the data coming from the temperature sensor. The sensor I chose, designed for liquid coolers, it’s a 10Kohm

Nixie thermometer – counting…

luca January 11, 2016 0

Today I worked on a prototype to understand how to use an Arduino to “control” a nixie tube. The goal was to write a sketch to display a sequence of digits from 0 to

Home automation with Telegram BOT

luca October 13, 2015 50

The project I’m going to describe today it’s a sort of proof of concept that will demonstrate the possibility to remote control sensors and actuators (for example a couple of relays) via Telegram. Telegram is an instant

MobileRelays – enc28J60 and Arduino (21)

luca May 12, 2015 42

Today’s project, as always based on the enc28j60 ethernet controller, allows to toggle relays (or, generally, digital PINs) using a responsive web page, that is a page that automatically adapts its layout to devices with
