Where do you guys ship from? And any idea how long it will take to arrive in Norway?

Just can't wait  smiley-grin

When I saw this I fell in love with it! Ordered one for me and my friend.

Genius!

But, one question. How do you run it with only battery power? Just use a 5volt regulator on 5+ and gnd?

But I do need that basic stamp serial thingy?

Thinking about that blue web4robot lcd.

Okai, I'm somewhat confused. What LCD is the easiest one to use with the Arduino?

Thinking about a character lcd type.

Are we forgetting the Arduino Mega here????

It's 65 USD each time the 10,000 is reached. NOT 5$

Hm, it's kind of a problem that the Mega got a soldered chip. Why can't they make the ATmega chips with more re-writes? 10.000 is kind of low.

Any rumours that a Mega with socket is on it's way? smiley

Only 10000?

Hm I might just think twice before uploading the program to my arduino smiley-sad

Or to put it like this, has anyone ever noticed this happened to their arduino?

Isn't it so that they can't live forever, just curious how many re-writes they can take before they are stuck.

I managed to get it working under my previous windows 7 installation.
But now I can't seem to get it working, it just tells me driver can't be installed.

Anynone got some ideas?

SOLUTION:

Download both the zip files, install drivers from there.

What potmeter is good to use? 10k ohms?

By that you mean like if the cold side is -19C and the hot side is +80C isn't good?

So far I've only had the cold side at -17C and hot-side at 27-34C.

To power my peltiers, I've also ordered a switch mode power supply from eBay. Gives out 12V and with a whopping 30A! They only cost 50$ with free shipping!  smiley-wink

Got my 60W today, freezes quite nicely.:



But, now I've ordered a 230W smiley-grin That should pack a punch!
73  Forum 2005-2010 (read only) / Bar Sport / Re: Arduino + Peltiers = refrigerator? on: August 11, 2009, 07:33:30 am
Well, I was thinking about using a temp sensor combined with arduino to control the outside fan, on the hot side. When it reaches above 50C it would turn on.

Also when the "fridge" reaches it's set temperature(temp sensor inside too), the peltier and fans are turned off. And turned on again when needed.

Anyhow, might be enough to use the 50W peliter. I dunno how much 50W is, when cooling down a 50x30CM "box" with stuff inside.

Or maybe the 136W would make a freezer? smiley-razz

Or... ebay got a 400W peliter, but then again I might just need a watercooler to keep it alive smiley-razz

I dunno, some inputs on how to do it. Or if anyone have done it before.
75  Forum 2005-2010 (read only) / Bar Sport / Arduino + Peltiers = refrigerator? on: August 10, 2009, 07:09:19 am
Just got some cheap 130W peltier elements from eBay. Also got some weaker 50W ones.

Would like to make a refrigerator out of it, just a small plasticbox and some isolation and it should work?

Arduino would control the fans/peltiers and measure temperature with a temp sensor.

Anyone got some ideas or?
