Topic: Floodlight issue in firmata? (Read 539 times) previous topic - next topic

Hi All,

I would like to trigger a small floodlight (120V, 1A) using the Maxuino. I have a pretty standard relay system setup (Sainsmart 4-channel) with optically isolated switching voltage, and this works well in Max/MSP via Maxuino/Firmata with anything low wattage (ie. Christmas lights). However, when I use this system to trigger my floodlight, serial communication hangs after ~15 switches regardless of switching speed. This error also occurs within the Firmata tester, so it is not constrained to Maxuino. The error does not occur if I write a simple blinking program for the arduino to flash the bulb. Any thoughts on the issue I am facing are much appreciated.

Thanks,
Charles
