  1. Closed: Re: Automatic Water Level Controller - Dynamic Dry-Run and OverLoad Current Calc Rela

    Sounds a good strategy. But...

    If you see a trend (current slowly increasing or decreasing over a long period), perhaps the motor is getting overheated or due to retire...

  2. Closed: Re: How the washing machine Automatic Load Sense works?

    Then how does it overcome "This in addition to the drum's high inertial load that will obscure the inertia of the wash load."- the problem stays.

  3. Closed: Re: Automatic Water Level Controller - Dynamic Dry-Run and OverLoad Current Calc Rela

    Looks OK.

    For dry run (pump running without pumping anything), the actual current will depend on the type of motor. For simple capacitor start induction motors, 20% will be a conservative value.

  4. Closed: Re: How to brake a three phase brushless DC motor?

    This is expected.

    Plugging is considered an emergency method to stop the motor; first you disconnect the power (so that the motor runs on its own inertia) and then it acts like a generator. At...
  5. [SOLVED]Closed: Re: Inflatable Hard Drive - transferal of data between three devices via USB

    It may be wise to think in advance how you are going to connect it. The SATA hard disk can be connected to a PC and the arduino can be connected to the PC. Where you are going to connect the USB hub?...
  6. [SOLVED]Closed: Re: Inflatable Hard Drive - transferal of data between three devices via USB

    Computer is connected to the hard disk via the USB cable; the filesystem reports the amount of hard disk used.

    How this information comes to the arduino? You need to have a connection to the...

    Closed: Re: Light distribution from multi LED lamp?

    I understand.

    You are planning to use the LEDs at a low height. In this case, the peripheral rays can reach the ground and you want to divert some of the central rays to the edges. But most of the...

    Why use a lens at all?

    15cm X15cm heatsink for 10 COB LED with 300W power input may be difficult to focus on a wide area - best may be to skip the lens altogether. Unless the light source is...

    Although the anion has less important roles, sulphate is not the optimal anion in this experiment. You should use Cl- as the preferred anion in your experiment: just add sufficient NaCl in the...

    The situation will be different if you want a small spot or a wide area of illumination - these are different requirements.

    For practical purposes, you can consider each COB as a point source; A...

    Closed: Re: Light distribution from multi LED lamp?

    300W is not really much; I presume that 300W reflects the input power.

    Just as a rough approximation, say about 50% of this input is converted into light. The rest will be converted into...

    Closed: Re: Clarification on power consumption

    Refer to the circuit diagram shown in #6.

    The two negative ends of the voltage source are connected to ground; they are at zero potential.

    Potential at V1 is +10 and the potential at V2 is +5V...

    Closed: Re: Light distribution from multi LED lamp?

    If you want any specific distribution of light, you need to use individual lenses. It may not be possible to use a single lens to focus on a desired distribution. For example, to get an uniform...

    It is not possible to use Al and C electrodes to make a rechargeable cell using water as an electrolyte. You need to use non-aquous electrolyte for recharging to be effective.

    The correct statement will be over a complete period; not over half-cycles.
  17. Closed: Re: Basic 12v Battery VOLTAGE METER, more resolution needed

    There is one example in the application notes that can be used to set the lower point (the voltage needed to light up the first LED) and also the steps for the next LED.
  18. Closed: Re: Basic 12v Battery VOLTAGE METER, more resolution needed

    No, it won't work; because the driver for the display takes the power from the same battery and the ground is common.

    You need to have an offset (say 10V) and then apply the voltage to the input....

    PCB layout is an art and some consider it as a black art!

    Simple advice that may work sometimes: group blockwise and keep related blocks close.

    Each resistor has two ends. It is a symmetrical device in the sense that you can exchange the two ends without ANY effect.

    There is nothing like a carbon dioxide resistor. Two common types are composite and film.

    For low values (say less than 1M) you can usually ignore the thermal noise. There are other types of...
