    If then syntax errors

    I want to write to write an if/then statement to in effect depending on the value of a variable to change the output of two pins without affecting what is going on with other pins and just seem to get syntax errors.

    I have written a program to use a modified AXE024 board to drive a servo to open a gate on a model railway layout. The program is using code snippets from the AXE024 data sheet to control the speed of movement and the positioning of the servo. At the end of each movement I am experiencing a...

    Aussie help required

    Apologies for this being a non-Picaxe related request but this is the only forum I know that has a significant Aussie contingent. To the point then. My school is having a World Cup day coinciding with the opening ceremony. The students will be involved in a number of world cup related...

    Sleep Command

    I would like to produce quite long delays in a program using the sleep command. Is there a limit to how many 2.3sec. periods can be used since the cell seems to allow almost any number to be entered in the multiples section. Richard

    Problems with WAIT commands

    I have been trying to produce a program that switches on a series of LEDs in sequence. The speed of the sequence is determined by Wait commands keeping each LED on for a set period. To vary the speed of the sequence I have used a potentiometer and Readadc the value thus obtained is used in a...

Two are the original flat cable type with the 3-pin header type connector (Useful for breadboarding) and 2 with the 3.5mm stereo plug. I would initially like to offer them to any UK school interested but any UK forum member...

    Infrain command

    When an Infrain command is executed in a program does it prevent any other inputs or interrupts. I cannot find anything documented in the manuals but that seems to be the case in any programmes I have tried. I know that when the programme reaches an Infrain command the flow is halted until an...

    Download Resistors

    I am looking to save space on some PCBs by leaving the download socket off where not required for future use. In effect the the two resistors now simply become a 32K pull-down resistance. Can these be replaced with a 33K or do they need to be that accurate at 32K, OR am I reading page 21 of the...

    Strain Gauge circuits

    I am looking for a circuit that uses a strain gauge as a sensor and came across one using a standard Wheatstone bridge and differential amp whose output was fed into a picaxe. Unfortunetly I forgot to bookmark the website which I think was either an Aussie or NZ site. I would be grateful if...
