Re: Industrial pi

TBH - I think a lot of these questions are way over the free forum here and need professional engineers (apologies to those who frequent here) rather than free advice. Well it completely depends on what he is trying to do and what sort of uptime/reliability he desires. I have seen fairly generic co...

Re: Raspberry Zero W и переподключения Wi-Fi

Отвечу сам себе, может быть кому-то окажется полезным. Устройство отключалось от роутера по причине своей "супер антенны", которая, как оказалось, недостаточная мощная. У меня мощность передатчика Wi-Fi на роутере уже несколько лет стоит на уровне 10% и этого было достаточно, чтобы все устройства д...

I have include a video showing the gui of Raspipool in action (see first post)
I don't see any parameter changes. Is it a simulation or real work?

About the interface, it's cool.

Actually, the Pi 0-3 have two UARTS. One is used for Bluetooth on the Pis that have the bluetooth chip, but it can be repurposed.
The Pi 4 has six (I think) UARTS.
Maybe you have any example for the project which uses 2 uarts simultaneously?
Is second uart is hardware? or software emulation?

Thank you very much.
Do you know if there is any tutorial on the Internet? Will search for it.

I suppose you mean OpenHAB?

Thanks,
Best,

Sorry, typo. You can find a lot of info on Node-Red forum. I don't use openhab in my projects, but tried openhabian and it works.

If you want to control the pool heater, ds18b20 is not so good idea for the temperature measurement. It's not so reliable solution if you use it with raspberry pi. Please, could you tell me why is not reliable? I am confortable with measuremets, because I have compared it with other thermometers an...

Re: Garden automation inquiries

Place the soil sensor as near as possible to your pi. I don't know which i2c frequency you use, but for 400khz max length of i2c cable is around 2 meters(because of cable capacitance).
Also, it is better to add the pullout resistor for mosfet gate (because of miller effect).

Using more than 10 sensors on one IO pin on the Pi will probably cause problems.

Re: RaspiPool. A Swimming Pool Automation System

What problems do you get with DS18B20s? I know the cheaper ones aren't as accurate as the quality ones, but generally they are good enough. There's nothing specific to the Pi that causes a problem. Unreliable. Sometimes PI just lost connection with this IC, this problem may be solved via reconnecti...

You can use new or used(ask in car repair) fuel injectors for this task. But, you need to remember, different injectors(different models) have slightly different open-close time, and you will need to play with timings. https://a.d-cd.net/41d4b38s-480.jpg Or solenoids from a washing machine,(around 8...
