For one of our experiments, we needed a laboratory power supply, that we could easily move around and that we could drive remotely through a wired network connection. At Yoctopuce, hardware-wise, we tend to bet on the best known manufacturers, but this time we decided to give the RD6006 a chance...
A customer recently contacted Yoctopuce support to ask why his DIY tachometer didn't work with a Yocto-PWM-Rx. We looked into it and, to our surprise, we discovered that generating a clean PWM signal with a magnet and a reed switch was not as easy as one could think.
This week, we discuss a small DIY to display the weather forecast. It's an opportunity to show you that you can use the job system of the Yocto-I2C for something else apart from reading sensors.
This week, we are going to do a small and amusing DIY: we will build a speedometer for a hamster wheel.
It seems that when it comes to installing accessories such as electrically powered roller shutters or lights built into a house, the tendency is to avoid pulling cables but to stick on the walls switches which are actually battery-powered radio controls. We are not very convinced of the ecological balance sheet of such a shortcut, but it opens up interesting prospects in terms of DIY.
