    AND

    It was a "syntax" error, I wished now I had "snipped" the screen before I closed it but after re-entering the code, it works. Thanks to all..... Dave

    AND

    Is there a way to have more than 2 inputs to control an output? If I add a 3rd, I get errors with the simulator.... Dave ;2 input AND gate main: if pinC.1 = 1 and pinC.2 = 1 then high c.4 else low c.4 endif goto main

    Extended time delay

    I am working on a device that will deliver a Covid-19 PSA over our PA system in our warehouse using a DFPlayer Mini MP3 using serial for each MP3 file. I tested the idea using my Halloween MP3 players ( funny to hear Halloween sounds coming from the PA system ) but anyhow, it worked. I have a...

    Accuracy is not a factor at all. Dave

    Extended time delay

    What can I use or how can I setup a controller that would trigger an output every 60 or 90 minutes. Dave

    3 pin ceramic resonator

    The project is nothing fancy but will be using serial 9600 baud to communicate with an MP4 Sprite video player and 3 MP3 DFPlayers for a Halloween prop controller. Project will have 3 witches talking to and sometimes over each other along with video projection into a crystal ball, well it looks...

    3 pin ceramic resonator

    Sorry but first time using a chip that required the external resonator....looking to use the 3 pin unit so just asking is there a device that you would use? Dave

    interface with 3x4 keypad

    Been away for a while...I am working on a project for my work to display safety videos on a TV by pressing buttons using a 3x4 keypad to communicate to a Picaxe. I know I can pull this off by using many push buttons and input pins but was hoping to interface via this keypad. The MP4 player is...

    twinkle little star

    Need some guidance please... Working with my girl on a school project and we want to simulate a star in the sky. Trying to; run a LED @ 50% the whole time and to be able to give it a quick flash @100% as needed for the effect. Dave

    SynchroLights

    4 wire sockets "2 in, 2 out" in the middle of the string and the 3 wire sockets are the lead and tail end of the strings. Dave

    Using restart/resume with multi task

    Question, I use this for triggering 10 watt LED strobes with a PIR for Halloween and noticed if I add another output "START5" the chip stops working. Is 4 the limit with this configuration? Dave #Picaxe 14m2 symbol PIR = pinc.3 symbol strobe1 = B.1 symbol strobe2 = B.2 symbol strobe3 = B.3...

    SynchroLights

    Hello all...are there any Picaxe hacks for the RGB SynchroLight strings? I am asking because Home Depot is selling them for 5.99 for a 12 light string. I opened a box, 3 wires between lamps with a pre programmed pod at the front of the string. Dave

    transistor with pwm

    Just asking, it may have been covered before but what is the best transistor to use with a PWM output? Dave

    DFPlayer mini

    Since MDfly removed their more popular MP3 player that I have been using for years with my Halloween controllers, I was given direction to the Robotshop for the DFPlayer mini. I am using a basic code just to see if I can make it work but looks like I am not communicating via serial. The player...
