721  International / Scandinavia / Re: arduino uno alarm on: May 21, 2012, 04:32:16 pm
Velkommen til!

Når du læser lidt af de andre indlæg, så kan du se at du er nødt til at fortælle lidt mere end kun "nemt og hurtigt alarm".

Hvad er den "nemme" del : Konstruktion? Kredsløbet? Softwaren? Brugen af det?

Men begynd med at fortælle
1) Hvad det er du overvåger (temperatur, vandniveau, antal fodtrin på et følsomt område)
2) hvordan du måler det (eller har tænkt at måle det, sensor type)
3) Hvad alarmen består af (blink, lyd, mail, SMS ...)
Og måske hvorfor du mener du behøver en Arduino involveret (kompliceret niveau/antal sensor input, kompliceret alarm (sende en SMS))

(Istedet for en lang beskrivelse kan du attache en tegning, muligvis en indscannet en)

On a standard Arduino pin 0 will not work as an interrupt, only pin 2 and 3. So your interrupt is never activated, never setting resetP to 1, thus never satisfying the if to call your subroutine.
723  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: Branch To Subroutine on: May 06, 2012, 10:57:13 am
Subroutines are called, not branched to.

There is nothing in your description as to why it should not be called.

Looking inthe attached code, I am missing a few #includes (or the other *.cpp in your directory) to get it to compile. That way I could see if you have mismatched a bracket or two.

You only go into your reset code if the interrupt on pin 0 triggers. Which never happens as I mention further down.

Swapping the 4-wire is a good try, assuming the chip is controlled correctly. It is enough to just swap any (adjacent) pair of motor wires.

Code suggestion (your actual pinnumbers and values may vary)
const int Mdir=6 ;
const int Mstep=7 ;
pinMode(Mdir,OUTPUT) ;
pinMode(Mstep,OUTPUT) ;
digitalWrite(Mdir,HIGH) ;  // LOW to go the other way
for (int j=0; j<200; j++) {
  digitalWrite(Mstep,HIGH) ;
  delayMicroseconds(12) ; // Step occurs on rising edge
  delay(3) ; //  more delay-> slower rotation speed.
Lastly, if you use delay() you are blocking, that is, the Arduino wont be able to do other things, like watching if a button is pushed, whilst turning the motor. That is also how the stepper-library works. If that is good enough, fine. Otherwise you have to start reading about "avoid using delay". Here and here and lots more from other contributors.

Damn, you're right ! smiley Didnt test it. The cause is that 24.8 is (probably) internally stored as 24.7999999... due to the finite limit of representing decimal fractions in binary.

Well, in an effort to keep my pride intact smiley-wink and to keep it "elegant" use the round function for the last bit
c=round((f[n]-int(f[n]))*10) ;
726  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: Ardiuno UNO, a4983 driver and stepper motor on: May 04, 2012, 04:04:54 pm
The stepper library does not know that you have an a4983. It is toggling the pins alternatly, thinking there is a motor. As one of the pins is the "dir" pin on the chip, your motor just jiggles to and fro.

Control your pins directly. Leave the pin going to the "dir" high and then alternate the the "step" pin up and down with a delay.

(I'm sure someone has made a library, but it is just a 3 line program to control the motor through the A4983.)
727  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: From float to seperate INTs - in an elegant manner :-) on: May 04, 2012, 03:52:28 pm
float f = 24.8 ;
int a ;
int b ;
int c ;

a = int(f)/10 ; b= int(f)%10 ; c=int((f-int(f))*10) ;
728  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: An error is causing my code to work! Bizarre... on: April 24, 2012, 12:17:57 pm
Editing of posts after people have discussed in several following posts them makes reading the thread very hard as they refer to something no longer there. Keep the edit feature to minor typos or suchlike.

Back to the subject: The code as I read it at this moment you declare two variables with the same content. The setup code does: Set pin to Input, Write High to pin, set pin to Output. The loop then reads the output pin. Reading an output pin "should" return the last value written...(similar case) which is HIGH.

If we leave out the 2nd defenition, or rather change (to avoid the undefined compiler error) then the code is
Set pin to input, Write high. The code then just reads the input pin.

You claim the exact opposite is happening. Have I understood you correctly?

I tried your code on my Arduino and it works for either case. Here is my code (which I will not edited after posting smiley )
const int FrontDoorPin = 4;
const int relay = 4;  // changed to 11 .. still works

void setup()
  digitalWrite(FrontDoorPin, HIGH); //pull up
  pinMode(relay, OUTPUT);   
void loop()
  if (digitalRead(FrontDoorPin) == LOW)
    digitalWrite(13,HIGH) ;
  else digitalWrite(13,LOW) ;
I even listed the assembly output and there is no "funnies" about the compiler getting confused or optimizing something away.
729  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: Stepper motor repeat/interupt code on: April 23, 2012, 05:51:11 am
if (mode ==0 && digitalRead(setupAswitch) == LOW){ mode = 1;}
will read the reed smiley and only switch into mode 1, from the startup state. Nice code. That part works. And it will not be confused with button bounce.
case 1:  // Set Stepper start position A
//Rotate until reed switchA is LOW
mode = 3;
I presume that is a place holder for now, 'cause mode 3 does nothing, exect allow us to move onto mode 4&5 on the next pass of the loop. (approx 10-odd microseconds later.)

Similar to the case 4, we test the condition for leaving mode 1, and if not do something in mode 1. (I really want you to find the solution yourself smiley )

The test will be digitalRead(reedswitchA), and on to mode 3 else do a Stepper.step and delay a while. (if it is +1 or -1 is your choice)
730  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: Stepper motor repeat/interupt code on: April 22, 2012, 12:10:52 pm
The solution depends on if you need to run loop() during the initial sequence (f.ex. to blink a LED, move another motor or check a temperature meter)

If you only need to do this motion then something like
case 4: // Run Stepper Prog A
 for ( int c=0; i<500; i++) {
mode = 6;
would work BUT this means that the machine does nothing else for 50 minutes.

If you need to monitor - fex. an quick stop switch - then

Define variable CountA, set it to 0

In case 4 fix the last line to be
  if ( CountA++ >500 ) mode = 6 ;

This way the code will (as long as the first 4 lines do not change it) repeatedly do case 4 for each loop() pass, until it has executed 500 times.

$200 for the controller -  smiley-eek

Ehr ... apart from the Voltage/current which fit, was it something particular you were worried about?

I would think it was harder to specification-match that controller to the steppers you have.

734  Using Arduino / LEDs and Multiplexing / Re: RGB led controlled by Matlab without using official matlab script on: April 17, 2012, 03:13:58 pm
I do not know of MATLAB, so I do not know what happens when you use fwrite() and send a value greater than 256. It either truncates it down to 256, sends the value modulus-256 or it sends several bytes. You need to know which.

Your problem is that will alwys only read a single byte at a time. Just like your keyboard only sends one key at a time, and you compose words by several keys in sequence and finish with a space, so you need to send your LED commands as several bytes.

I suggest you send three bytes. The first byte is the LED1 value, the 2nd byte is the LED2 value and the 3rd byte is 255.

In your send code you never send 255 as the value. In your receive code, if the 1st or 2nd byte is 255, then you know you have "lost a byte somewhere" and your code should start waiting for byte 1 again.

That is what is called a "protocol", ie the rules how the bytes are interpreted, and how to handle some errors. There are many ways to define a protocol, my suggestion is just a simple variant that fits the approach you have in your code.
