Not with a vague question like that.

Thank you for the replies... Serial LCD looks like what I want... Now to find a local store here in Albany that carries them is another issue lol

Thanks!
3  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Please recommend a LCD on: October 18, 2012, 05:33:52 pm
Hey there.

I am looking for a LCD that uses minimal pins.  I know there are a lot of options.  I am looking for either a 2x16 or a 4x16.  Please recommend one to me.

Thank you.

PS. One with examples on how to write them from Arduino are a plus.  Thanks.
4  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Looking for switches... on: October 14, 2012, 04:43:34 pm
Hello everybody!

I am looking for two different types of switches.

First, I need a 3-way switch, ON, OFF, AUTO.  I'm not sure how they work with adruino.  Does each position output a different voltage so I can determine the position of the switch?

I also am looking for a 2-way switch, ON and OFF.  Basically the same thing, I need to determine the position of the switch.

Thanks for any help and recommendations.

This thread may be deleted.  Apparently my sketch wasn't properly uploaded.

Sorry.

I tried that, Its still on the same line.

I am printing text to the serial monitor but I cannot get the text on new lines.  It's all just crammed together.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

I'm open to suggestions on the LCD's.
9  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Multiple LCD's on: October 04, 2012, 02:49:50 pm
Yes everybody's comments are great and helpful.  I said I would list what I bought so I did.

I only need to output text on the LCD's.

I need two of each of these on the Arduino.  And I also need two LCD's, which I have not purchased yet.

Do your machines have on-board computers?
12  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Multiple LCD's on: October 03, 2012, 07:31:11 am
The temp sensors need two pins I believe.... Input and output.... I will link the components I bought when I get home from work

I am new to Ardunio, but loving what I see so far.

I just purchased a Uno R3.  I have been messing around with it and I think it is awesome!

I have not ordered any LCD's yet. However, I am looking to display 2 different LCD's, use 2 different temp sensors, and run a couple relays for power outlets.  Will the Arduino be sufficient for this setup?

Thanks.
14  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Which board do I need? on: October 01, 2012, 03:49:23 pm
I'm not sure which arduino board suits me best.  Also I should add that I need to do two instances of this.  Meaning I need to monitor two temps and turn on/off two outlets.

Any Arduino can do that. The Uno is a handy size.


Thank you for the reply.  I picked up a Uno a few days ago... Loving it more each day.  I am learning that I can do a lot more with it than I though.  It's just a matter of finding the right components and trying to learn about electronics at the same time.  I will hopefully get it all figured out...  I am real excited to actually start building my project.  Right now I'm just in research mode and making the light blink on the Arduino haha.

If I can get these relay's figured out I will be in good shape to start building.

I found this tutorial.

I think this is what I need.
