Couldn't pulseIn be used? - Scotty

How would one know how much fuel is passing through the injector per a time interval? - Scotty

How about rainbow colored ribbon cable? That's 26 guage.

Yes that would be good to use if there wasn't so much extra clear coating on it that I suppose is used to keep all the conductors together. The last time I used it I could not insert the insulation into a pin for a Dupont connector without shaving all the extra junk off of it. Perhaps there is some that does not have the extra coating? That kind of flexibility, like separate conductors of a ribbon cable, is what I'm looking for.

I use network and phone cable for most of my work.

Yeah, that what's I'm using now. Just don't like it.

Kinda like this, but with more cores:

For the kind of cable I'm looking for, those loose conductors would be drooping over.

Nonetheless, thanks to you all for responding. - Scotty

Hello All. I'm seeking a source of stranded hook up wire, 28 or 26 gauge to use for signal or low current power (leds, etc.) that takes solder well. I want very flexible wire that is flexible enough to droop when laid across a finger like cooked spaghetti. Ideally, I would like to find cable that would contain multiple conductors of different colors so I could strip away the sheathing and use the conductors within. That would save having to buy lengths of different colored individual wire. Any leads? Thanks - Scotty

Please post your final code. - Scotty

This may be a solution. - Scotty
7  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Servo on: May 21, 2014, 07:06:08 am
You may want to consider using a different motor. There are many high torque, inexpensive, small dc gear motors available to use in lieu of a pricey high torque servo. - Scotty
8  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: how to interface RF433mhz modules to arduino on: May 21, 2014, 06:59:01 am
A guy named Google can help you. Ask him to search "433mhz Arduino". - Scotty
9  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: Sending data between two nRF24l01 units (wireless altimeter for RC plane) on: May 19, 2014, 02:33:56 pm
Thank You. Looking forward to it. - Scotty
10  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: programming mess up! on: May 18, 2014, 06:09:10 am
SoftwareServo.h, SoftwareSerial.h & VirtualWire.h are libraries. Do you have them installed in your libraries folder? - Scotty
11  Using Arduino / Motors, Mechanics, and Power / Re: Arduino Car window on: May 12, 2014, 06:51:56 am
And yes when window will be fully closed then voltage will be incresed then i will made the code when voltae is bigger then 12v then arduino stop relay

The current, not the voltage will increase. - Scotty
12  Using Arduino / Motors, Mechanics, and Power / Re: Arduino Car window on: May 11, 2014, 07:45:49 am
Automotive window regulator motors will require a significant amount of current to run the window up or down. The amount of current will increase GREATLY when the window reaches top or bottom and the motor stalls. You might want to consider that. - Scotty
13  Using Arduino / Motors, Mechanics, and Power / Re: 12v DC pump/ SSR relay on: May 07, 2014, 06:41:09 am
I believe a SSR is essentially a triac. This is from a Wikipedia page: "Once triggered, the device continues to conduct until the current drops below a certain threshold called the holding current." - Scotty

Welcome to these forums. Help for you is available but you have to help yourself first. You must do some homework on your own to gain an understanding of what to do to get yourself started in your endeavor. To do so, simply Google 'Arduino DC motor' and read. If you do so, you will then understand enough to allow you to proceed on your own, at least enough to ask specific questions. Your original post seems to request 'take my hand and do this project for me'. - Scotty
15  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Re: Figuring out some numbers for a mini pump on: May 06, 2014, 07:23:18 am
How often and for how long is the pump needed to be run? - Scotty
