1  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: Relay with TWO Input pins !!!! on: June 09, 2014, 07:24:34 am
this is how to connect to your module, my advice is to have a look at a few relay circuits and learn how they work

gnd to gnd
In to your auduino output.
Vcc to 5v

relay contacts (5v relay not a 24v)
com  common contact
no  normally open contact
nc  normally closed contact

it is almost, the one he has doesnt have the common connected really not sure how that one would work

here is a better picture, the modual you have looks confusing the common isnt present ie not soldered

here is a pretty good guide, you will need the higher voltage for the relay

another good guide, its near the bottom of the page

how about using just a 3.3v zenner diode and a 100nf c for de-coupling that would do it, one less component?
cheers

yup you correct of course geoff i will be adding a reg and c's, 
thanks for the advice

hi geoff thanks for the help, so im fine supplying vcc with 4.7v

i do realize its maby lazy / not best practice to add more circuitry to get it down to 3.3v, but if it works fine at 4.7v great

cheers

im hoping to use this max 3485e, due to my supply being slightly on the low side due to cable resistance, ive got 4.7v to play with.

one end in going to use a max 485e, other end max 3485e

am i right in thinking the supply for the max3485 can be max 7v, the data sheet contradicts itself  

vcc absolute max 7v,  or vcc 3.3v +-0.3v

cheers

thanks for the advice, ive mainly been using my scope for building / testing power supply's and such, not really touched it for anything else yet maby i should be getting a logic analyser as well
12  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Re: can someone reccomend me an entry lever scope please on: April 14, 2013, 12:25:17 pm
ive also got this as a contender as well, a pc based scope really keen price

hi,
ive been using and struggling with a pocket size single channel one, think its time to move on to a 2 Chanel scope could someone please recommend me one please, possible something i could grow into as my as my knowledge gets greater, seen lots of Chinese ones look good value,  wondering about their longevity

thank you

ive stumbled across this one, looks good

i used to use uv / light box, i now use the laser toner method much much easer and better end result have a look on utube lots of guides there

i see it has a atmega168 bootloader,  will that burn a atmega168, 20pu chip?

thanks
