    PV Powered DC Pump Controller

    @Solar Mike, nice project :) I too had a similar issue with my solar tracker actuator drive some years back. The amount of damage solar panels can do to a motor or drive circuit is considerable, when power output is in the range where its not produce enough power to start up. One morning after...

    NOT command

    Thanks for the reply guys. It has straightened up my slow thinking this morning (y) I was thinking a NOT would work better... but it maybe not needed.

    NOT command

    This may be a silly question.. Is there a way to express NOT > value or NOT < value? I'm aware of <> or != the value. However, I couldn't find a variation for - NOT greater than or NOT less than the value. My application (M2) requires a NOT, due to ADC read fluctuations that can't be overcome...

    Electronically controlled water tank inlet flush unit

    Requesting data does work best for me as well. As you would know, this is almost impossible to do without a secondary picaxe that can handle that task alone. There are many things that I encountered that needed to be address with polling RF. e.g. the request for re-transmission of data in a...

    Electronically controlled water tank inlet flush unit

    Thanks Ibenson. You know..I'm sort of embarrassed of the way the serial comms looks in this project.. in fact in all of the 5 project that I have built, that talk back and forth with the central diagnostic unit. I tried 4 different RF communication methods. And spent months trying to get them...

    Electronically controlled water tank inlet flush unit

    Hi again guys, This is a project that I made a few years back. I actually have 2 of them operating on two tanks. The main disadvantage with a standard Water Tank 'First Flush', is that they don't get rid of enough debris from the water collection point and the organic matter that builds in...

    Portable battery driven water pump

    We have a Picaxe stockist here in Australia. But many times they don't have what I need. Because I only use Surface Mount chips. So I just order from RevEd directly. It never takes more than 2 and a half weeks, even with the two orders I made this year.

    Portable battery driven water pump

    Hi Mike. The display is an 8 x 2 OLED from the Picaxe store. https://www.picaxestore.com/axe131y Although the housing it is in, is 3D printed to suit the display and box lid. The label was just made using Word and then laminated and stuck on with transfer tape. Here is a view of it from the...

    Portable battery driven water pump

    Hi guys. This is a project I made to use for watering the Garden and Tree's through the drought we had recently. It made it much easier than running tens or hundreds of meters of hose from the main water line. While I do have a few small tanks around the property. I thought it might give an idea...

    Designing all in one PCB (wish list)

    Hi guys, Here is another board I recently designed to use for RF serial communications for a few projects. It uses an 08M2 to filter the data and then transfer it to the 20X2. So far I have only loaded it with a 20X2. But a 20M2 can also be used, due to them both having the same pin allocation...

    X2 vs M2 Pause times

    Thanks again.. No assuming for me;)

    X2 vs M2 Pause times

    Thanks for the reply. If I was running both chips at default clock frequency, for sure... But in this case both the X2 and M2 are running at 16Mhz. So I would assume that the PAUSE value would be 4x greater than the required, on both?

    X2 vs M2 Pause times

    I have run a certain program with a 14M2 for long while. And today I load it to a 28X2. The specific part of the code that I noticed the change was a Flashing sequence, that included PAUSE's. Its the same code with the same clock speed, M16. But the flashing sequence on the X2, is at half the...

    Midas vs Winstar 16x2 OLED

    I'm considering getting another 16x2 OLED display. So I download the specs of the Midas units. They appear to have some nice functions compared to Winstar. Like... smooth horizontal scrolling and line shift selection. Have any of you guys used one of these? To confirm that they will do these...

    RTC with 2/3 day lenght time

    Thanks Ibenson (y) I think I learnt more about Picaxe with this build over the last month, than I had in the last 10 years. Most of my past builds used Picaxe's like a PLC. I just have a bit more time on my hands at the moment.

    RTC with 2/3 day lenght time

    This is the first half a project that I started working on a month ago. Although it still works as a free standing unit at this point. The other part will be external with sensors. Plus I wanted to say a thanks to all you guys that have help me along the way, with many posts and snippets that I...

    Bptr Symbol and S_W variable questions

    Thanks for input and thought into the matter guys. I'll give your layout a go Aries, and see how I find the application of it. The reason for asking the original question was to find a simple and tidy method of doing this. Without too much memory use. As you can imagine, if I have already used...

    Bptr Symbol and S_W variable questions

    Thanks Ibenson. I was hoping there may have been some tricks that others had came across in there use of these two functions. Its useful to have extra variables. But I find myself getting lost with the use of too many BPTR. It would make reading the code far easier if they could be assigned to...

    Bptr Symbol and S_W variable questions

    I'm wondering if there is a way to give a Bit Pointer locations a Symbol? The example below doesn't check out. But I was wondering if there is a way to do it, that I have missed. Symbol TEST = bptr = 50 Main: If @TEST = 1 then : Goto stuff Endif And also wondering if a Special Word variable...
