A few days ago, our beloved Cosm Beta service that we used to recommend for real-time graphs from your Yoctopuce sensors, has changed its usage terms. Renamed as Xively, the web site is now focusing on revenue-generating services. Unfortunately, some essential features that we have been using, such as the ability to chose the display time range on a graph, have disappeared. It is therefore time to look for alternatives to Cosm...
Tinkering with the desk lamp brought up an omission in our product catalog: a latched relay was clearly missing. This lack has now been made up thanks to the Yocto-LatchedRelay, a latched relay which can also be manually commuted.
After the article on the remote controlled camera, we were asked if the Yoctopuce modules could be used to take pictures of scenes notoriously difficult to capture, such as a bursting balloon. We had to respond to the challenge!
We regularly present you with more or less original ideas on how to use our products. The subject of the posts depends on the inspiration of the week or on issues submitted to us. Usually, our examples are oriented towards home automation or industry applications. For a bit of fresh air, here are a few very different examples, created and made public directly by our customers.
Measuring devices which you can directly connect to the network are usually very expensive, more than 1'000 Euros. However, numerous applications, such as monitoring an experiment started on a napkin, could benefit from them if they were more affordable. We are going to show you therefore how to very easily transform a Raspberry Pi into a very flexible Ethernet multimeter, with the help of a simple Python script. A simple solution based on standard USB modules, demonstrated in a video.
