General Electronics / Relay module is active low...h...
Last post by arusr - Today at 06:29 am
This seems to be a common problem, and newbies like me are surprised when it happens.  But what's a good way around this?  When the Arduino reboots, it sets off the relay, which turns on the output (a remote control power switch).  That's not the behavior I want.  I've tried setting the output to HIGH right away during setup, but there's still a long delay before the relay is de-energized.
What's a good way to make the relay modules active high?  I have an NPN transistor that I can use to flip it, but the example I find use a ULN2803, and I don't know how to take that schematic and apply it to a single NPN transistor.
For reference:

A tape measure?
The Serial Monitor application uses DTR=on in the serial port initialization process. The default for DTR is off. The DTR value must be on to communicate with the Leonardo and the Micro.
I just fixed my software with the DTR ON as you said when init the port.
It works as expected now.

Thanks a lot PaulS.

Ciao Uwe

But that requires the string.h library to supply the code whereas the latter method does not.

The string.h library is very useful once understood though.

OK, I think I'm starting to get it. Correct me if I'm wrong, but with a 5v/2a regulated power supply and connections soldered on a (non bread) board, I wouldn't need voltage regulators, and I could power two (or hopefully up to four) servos, even if they experience a load.

Thanks for the input, folks.

Which m1284 add-on code are you using?  AFAIK, the most popular ones assume a version of Optiboot in the 1284 as bootloader, and that will operate at 115200bps.
The "voltage too low" using the mkII may be to inappropriate wiring of the ISP connection; many programmers will provide power via the ISP connector, which is not always a good thing, so the VCC pin may be left connected.  The Atmel programmers tend to use the VCC pin to SENSE the operating voltage (they do NOT provide "power"), and may be unhappy with an unconnected pin.
Simple scheme. I use SPI to send the 4 bytes out that are displayed:
Code: [Select]

digitalWrite(ssPin, LOW);
for (x=0; x<4; x=x+1){
SPI.transfer(fontArray[dataArray[x]]); // double lookup - number to display and font-to-segment mapping
digitalWrite (ssPin, HIGH); // outputs change on this rising edge
Eh I was afraid of that. I will try that this weekend and report back. Thanks for the help.

By the way, is it really necessary to add func to the name of the function? Is that so that you can recognize a function when it bites you in the ass?
No not really necessary just a habit and pretty much yes that's why. ;)
It's a whole lot easier when you code the commands to a single letter and/or use a state machine.
