Re: Check Argon ONE fan speed on RPI4 using CLI

Unless the fan has a "tacho" lead coming from the fan you can not retrieve RPM's of the fan. I don't believe the Argon fan has a tacho lead. I believe it;s a simple 2 wire fan. You can only retrieve/command the amount of power being sent (PWM 25%, 50%, 100%) ultimately changing the speed ...

Re: HOW TO write udev rule for USB disk

You need to edit /lib/systemd/system/systemd-udevd.service

MountFlags=slave to MountFlags=shared

Otherwise mount commands won't work

Re: [HOW TO] Early Boot Splash

Re: Check Argon ONE fan speed on RPI4 using CLI

Thank you so much. How can you get the fan speed value with your code if it's not possible with Argon's code? Without getting to technical my code saves an array of values in a special location that can be accessed by other programs all that other program needs to do is read that special file. All ...

Re: Break Beam Sensor Sensing distance 2 metres

For multiple beams use different frequencies and a tone decoder IC 567 for your transmitters use a 556 that's a dual 555 in a single package have to one frequency switch on and off the carrier. Then the receiver you put the out put to the tone decoder and it will give you a high low based on the Sig...

Re: Break Beam Sensor Sensing distance 2 metres

Have you looked at making your own?

You could use an IR remote transmitter receiver circuit they have ready made kits. All you need to do is flash your LED at the correct carrier for the receiver and it will output a high signal if set up right it should work for your needs.
