16  Using Arduino / LEDs and Multiplexing / LPD8806 Addressable LED Strip Library (32 LEDs) on: November 01, 2012, 05:35:34 pm
I recently got this addressable led strip (http://store.rebootstudio.com/lpd8806-addressable-flexible-led-strip-waterproof). I have it running using the tutorial from Adafruit: http://learn.adafruit.com/downloads/pdf/digital-led-strip.pdf

However I cant figure out how to make my own sequence (Change the color of an individual LED).
My end goal is to create a light painting like this: http://mrossphoto.com/wordpress32/dlwblog/

Is there a guide or library that is for the LPD8806 version of the Digital LED Strip?

All Electronics sells this motor which has about the same dimensions and similar specs.

You could get a Normally Closed switch that completes a circuit. When the switch is broken it will trigger an alarm, in this case I would recommend rewiring the Life Alert 911 Phone (http://www.lifealert.com/911phone.aspx), so that the switch activates the 911 button.

Do I need a transistor for each pin or is their some way I can use just one, I only have one in by parts bin right now.

Hi, attatched is my current setup. What I want to do is be able to short the green 9v gnd wire with any of the 4 signal pins by using the arduino as a "virtual" relay/button switch. Can I use the blink program even though the green wire is 9v? Is there a simple resister that I only need 1 attached to the green wire to reduce the voltage.

Absolument!
Merci!

I found this and believe it will work, correct me if I am wrong.

Goal: Control a traffic light or any other three items using Arduino Uno, Traffic light, and three Crouzet M-OAC5-315 SSR's

I just was at All Electronics yesterday and in there store they have a Traffic light being controlled by http://www.allelectronics.com/make-a-store/item/MK-131/TRAFFIC-LED-LIGHT-KIT/1.html and three Crouzet M-OAC5-315 SSR's http://www.allelectronics.com/make-a-store/item/SRLY-19/1A-SOLID-STATE-RELAY-3-8VDC-CONTROL/1.html.

What I want to do is have the same type of circuit but instead of using the auto switching function that the kit uses, I would like to be able to control it using the Arduino. Do I even need the kit? How could I accomplish this using the Kit and the SSR's? Diagrams, Pictures, Links, and Schematics would really help.

You could just get a dc to ac power inverter. The http://www.powerbright.com/DX100-12.html is a cool one because it has both a usb and a ac port. I always find these great to leave in the car as they save you from having to by seperate dc chargers for things such as cellphones and iPods.

Thanks for putting up with my questions. I believe I understand the basic idea of the whole circuit. By the way, is their any program that allows me to test a schematic to see if it will operate properly? I end up a lot of the time with more unused or fried parts than working ones. I just need some way of making a circuit and testing it without actually spending money. I understand some of the terms in a schematic, but am more used to seeing "clipart" schematics. I am learning though.

Ok, I have the parts and have been looking at schematics and other posts about this kit, but I don't want to risk blowing the Arduino, the kit up and possibly my eyebrows. Is it possible that I could get a schematic of CrossRoads post and possibly a explanation of what page in the playground to take a look at? Any help is better than nothing. Thanks!

Thanks! I will try that tomorrow after I go get the parts.

I bought today this kit from All Electronics in Los Angeles. I built it and now hope with little modification to be able to use my Arduino Uno Rev 3 to control the 4 relays.

The voltage rating is listed as follows:
  • Max. load: 240V AC / 3A resistive
  • 9V DC / 300 mA power supply
  • Is controlled by a open collector output (9V/15 mA)

The manual that has this information can be found in the attachments.

Can an Arduino Uno Rev 3 output this voltage, or do I need some other parts?

Thanks! I will post back here if I run into any problems.
