You'd still be at 214 milliamps right?

Why not go for resolution and calibrate to get your accuracy?  If you take water and ice floats in it, it is 0°C, boil water and your at 100°C.  If you can get ahold of a calibrated instrument you could compare something around the temp you are targeting and calibrate to that.

No I can't...I got it all apart and I can't really tell what chip drives it (I don't really see much for chips...?

The #s on the screen are


I'll see if I can get some pics.

Anyone have any information interfacing with other cell phone/PDA screens?  I've got a spare Siemens SX66 w/ a acx502bmv-7 touch screen on it I would like to salvage for parts.

True, I could use the half price 1As for most of them....So all I'd need to do is run the output of the arduino to their input and i'd be good to go?  No need to worry about diodes and voltage running back from the relay when I switch it off?

Thanks for the link Ran...6.50 a pop..ouch!

As the title states.  I am trying to switch up to 8 110VAC via an Arduino.  Can I use the digital out pins to switch 110VAC relays?  How would I go about this?  What relays are suggested?  I would be switching up to 2.5 Amps on the 110VAC side but most would be in the 0.5A range.

Thanks all in advance for the help.

PM'd, hopefully we can work on this project together

Hello everyone,

I figured I would start a post and introduce myself.  Ian here as you can tell by the most inventive screen name.  I am getting very excited by the possibilities of the Arduino low cost and feature set!

Anywho I am an avid scuba diver, work in R&D for scuba/lifesupport systems, reef keeper, programmer, motorcycle enthusiast, firearm supporter, alcoholic.  That fairly well describes me in 50 words or less.  ;D

Interested in my first project w/ an Arduino in building a controller for my reef aquarium.  If there is somewhere to start project threads, I will start one there.  I will have MANY newb questions, but do have a bit (very limited) electronics background, but a much nicer programming background.  I also tend to get very involved in forums that I am well..involved in!  So I will thank everyone now for the help they will be providing me and I apologize for the arguments when I gain adequate knowledge to disagree with the experts!
