MOD-1016 AS3935 based lightning and storm sensor

I purchased a MOD-1016 AS3935 based lightning detector, http://www.embeddedadventures.com/datasheets/MOD-1016_hw_v4_doc_v2.pdf and while I wait for it to arrive I'm doing some homework. Looking at the schematic there are 2x 10K pullup resistors on the break out kit R1 & R2 and in the documentation i...

Ok here's the challenge. I have 2 Pi s one running MINIDLNA (working perfectly) address 192.168.1.34 The second one I have set up as a Wi-Fi hotspot as described in http://elinux.org/RPI-Wireless-Hotspot The 2nd pi has an eth0=192.168.1.2 and the Wi-FI set up with a dhcp server 192.168.42.200-192.16...

Re: Idea: Lightning dection and power/rj45/rj11 disconnectio

One way to deal with the scenario where everything's already switched on when you apply power is to do what is done in places I've worked. There's a box between the mains input and the sockets feeding the equipment, with a set of relays one for each socket, and a time delay that switches the socket...

Has anyone built a Pi to drive a washing machine? I have a washing machine that I call Bruce (from Die Hard).. He's 35 years old, and might need replacing.. I've sort of got attached to him as he's served me well. Within the machine the components are quite simple, 1) Main Motor (2 speeds) and direc...

Ok, so here's the idea, I live in Johannesburg, during the summer months we get quite hectic lightning strikes, Every day I physically disconnect my equipment, (out the wall socket) and RJ45/RJ11 (adsl) in an attempt to protect my equipment from lightning damage. Simply disconnecting the wall switch...

Re: I2CHub with Raspberry Pi

Christoph, I must say that I'm a real beginner,
I've done a little (very little) work on i2c, and from my experience, is that you can daisy chain the i2c bus,
so looking at that little board I'd say yes that would give you a simple way of extending thei2c bus

Perhaps the low profile SD card adapter from adafruit might help you?

How about an Education Store?

I've not looked at the store, and if it already exists I apologize,

How about a store where you get to pick what you want to learn?

Anything from PI basics to electronics to you name it, that way kids (and myself) can have a structured learning path.

anyway just a thought

Because of the wider flange My UK built Pi wont fit into the case I bought, from Built to Spec. Question is has anyone else noticed this? and ar...
