    Question about Pin and which Leg it is

    I need to use the ReadTemp with an 8M chip. I have it connected to In-3 which is Leg 4. The manual says for an 8M the command is not available on Pin 3 ... very confusing to me. So - which is the Pin we are talking about? Thanks

    Easiest way to have Picaxe wait 3-5 minutes before taking another sample?

    Using an 8M I will be using it like a intervalometer and only need to read the temperature every 3-5 minutes. Is there a simple way other that a pause in a loop?

    DS18B20 ... a way to shift the range higher or offset?

    I would like to make a temperature controller with a Picaxe and a DS18B20. However, I need the range to cover a little higher temperature .... up to +325°F. I will actually operate at ~ 100°F to 325°F The data sheet shows a range of (-67°F to +257°F) for the DS18B20. Is there a way to...

    Completed Motorcycle turn signal cancellation unit.

    I have completed the unit and it appears to work well. I finally had to use a count method to watch the flasher module to get it to work. The code isn't elegant but it is functional. Here are all of the files in Eagle and the code file. I have routed the PCB's in several versions. The one...

    Piezo Sounder Frequency

    The resonant frequency of the device is ~ 2900 Hz. I am using an 8M and the lowest freq. I can get with the PWMOUT command is 3900. I also tried the TUNE command. I want it as loud as possible and it is running at 12v already. How to get the correct frequency?

    Help with a small section of code needed

    I need some help with one section of my code. It works perfectly; however, it is probably time sensitive when checking to see if the Signal Line is toggling (CheckForFlasherToggling). I used hippy's idea to watch that line and it works, but when/if the battery voltage changes it may not...

    Piezo disk or sounder

    Will this be sufficient to protect the Picaxe?

    I have two input circuits. Both are sitting at +12v and I want to know when one of them goes to 0v (ground). This is just the basic to show the question and the Picaxe is not finished, etc. When either line goes to ground the input to the Picaxe should go low. My question is with the 5V on...
