    Picaxe or adruino programming

    Thought I would just put a shoutout here to see if anyone on this forum has experience with picaxe or arduino programming? may have some questions in the future, I am just learning about this as I am typing. some of the tutorials are pretty interesting. gonna see if I can make an led blink on and off! then its off to the solid state SG races.... I think I can get it eventually so the picaxe will tune to the load on the secondary.

    good to know, is how you get good analog readings..

    yes something like that....... I have a picaxe and all the stuff I need, so now I gotta dig in. I have no time!!

    You don't need a Picaxe nor any micro to perform automatic charging & discharging on an SSG (etc) with data logging. You can do it much more simply using comparators, timers, relays & plugging your DMM with data logging function into the computer. These DMMs are very cheap to buy these days. You can also go "full analogue" & run everything off the primary battery. This might look complicated, but anyone can replicate it.

    yea I understand that barrie, this is for pwm control of the coil, or for a tesla switch maybe. dunno will get to it when I can, I can think of 100 things to do with one.....

    MrRonsen,

    an interesting setup. I am about to begin experimenting with the SSG and i need an effective way to complete the 20runs. would you care to share the parts list and the code?

    sincerely,

    i will write a step by step manual with pictures on my website...
    so you could copy-paste most of code fragments..
    and profit from experience,
    i needed a long time to get good stable usable analog readings..
    a problem everyone is facing when beginning...
    other thing is, protect your arduino equipment, never make readings when powercoil is active..
    so disconnect the trigger, powercoil is inactive,connect your arduino analog reading equipment, make your readings,
    save them on SD card with timestamp, disconnect your arduino analog reading equipment, and connect trigger again..
    powercoils will be active again.. and your arduino and sensor keep alive..
    make sure, you cannot add arduino analog reading equipment while trigger is active.. and visa vi..
    i use a clever wiring, combination of relays, so the protection is in hardware, no software error will destroy your equipment..
    relays steering with optocouplers,... in first version only reading one battery, the secondary.. in second version..
    you can add hardware and read the primary also...

    getting good data.. BUT it costs a lot of money! ... piece by piece.. a nice sum, but its worth to me, a hobby,

    for analoge readings, i use this:

    PDF breadboard connections/setup

    arduino mega ref3, 12bit ADC MCP3208, 3.3 voltage regulator LM3940, Attopilot current voltage sensor 50V/90A
