    Are Rev-Ed & Picaxe missing out??

    I've dabbled with Picaxe on and off for well over ten years now but never in a serious way but always willing to learn more all the time, this time 5yrs ago I couldn't program a PLC and now that I work with them daily I manage round a Mitsubishi PLC quite happily. I was having a look around...

    Thoughts on adding additional I/O

    Just been having a route about the forum and the picaxe website in the FAQ section and just wondered what fellow forumers (if that's a word) thoughts are on adding I/O. There are the following options from what I can see:- 1. Use a bigger picaxe chip (probably the easiest thing to do) 2...

    Hi all, I've tried to do a search on here before asking, but you can imagine what the results are when you search "output to input" you end up with every Thread ever written. What I would like to know is can I come out of the output of one picaxe straight into the input of another to read a...

    Pules input question

    Hi gang, is it possible for a picaxe chip to be connected to a mag pickup similar to those used on car ABS so that at specific frequencies of the square wave they give out it would change outputs? hope that makes sense.

    Motor control

    Hi all, I have a small dc motor and wish to use a picaxe to control the speed. what I am not sure about and wonder if anyone could do one for me is the code. I would like it that when say input 1 is pulsed high the motor runs at half speed and then when input 2 is pulsed high it runs up to full...

    Tool box alarm

    Hi all, it’s been a while. I have been asked to build an alarm for a friends site tool box and immediately thought of the old PICAXE. I can do the hardware side of things but the program side still gets me, so I thought I would ask the extended family. What it will have will be one input for...

    Hi, I’m starting to look at my second ever project with a Picaxe chip probably an 08. I want to get rid of four mechanical pressure switches and replace them with a single sensor and have four on/off set points with hysteresis for each point. I have seen the sensor that I would like to use it...
