59 KB,
I'm really stuck on this circuit I'm trying to build to heat and cool a block. The thermal blocks heats and cool based on whether I apply a +12/-12V at each of its inputs and I have to swap them manually to invert the heating/cooling function.

I was thinking of using an Arduino that sends a Digital signal to a multiplexer to convert the voltage whenever I reach a certain temperature.

So when I am at 60c, I want to heat, and at 95C I want to cool and cycle back and forth. I want to swap the voltages but I'm not sure if I can do this with a multiplexer....

You'd end up with a much simpler design by simply using a pair of relays.
Since the thermal blocks likely use a decent amount of power you're running them with a decent set of Transistors or Relays in the first place.

An H-bridge is a type of circuit that does exactly what you want here: it swaps polarity between two wires.

balloon idea.png
39 KB,
Pneumatics people, would a setup like pic related work for closed-loop controlling the volume of a balloon without attaching a positional transducer to the balloon itself? From looking on the internet, I've found that the volume-pressure relationship of a balloon is many-to-one with an initial peak as it inflates, so you can't reliably estimate volume from pressure especially when starting from atmospheric.

The balloon is just a regular latex party balloon and the pumps are http://www.robotshop.com/ca/en/sfe-air-pump.html . I don't need to spit out the exact volume. Just be able to inflate then deflate to manually-adjusted setpoints, then have the control system repeat that motion on any identical balloon.

Ideally it should be able to fully inflate and deflate a balloon quite rapidly, in 1/2 a second or less. The sense chamber would large enough that it would be negligibly stressed in doing so. I also realize that compressing the balloon will cause volume to decrease without registering in the sense chamber, but this is an acceptable compromise.

Now that you're being more clear, rather than a pure soft robot, which sounds like a pain in the ass, I would make a hybrid soft/hard robot with joints and rotary encoders.
It'd be a lot easier than building a circuit that PIDs based on volume vs ambient pressure.

So I bought this motorcycle and the PO had at some point broke off the left mirror and """repaired""" it with JB weld. It snapped off when I went to adjust it. The mirror assembly is threaded on one end M10-1.25 to be precise, I have a nut that will fit. It would normally thread into a (plastic) boltplate to the lights control switch assembly but it's fucked. The handlebar has some space, it's about 3/4" around or whatever that is in metric sizes.

So my ideas so far, get a pipe clamp or conduit strap on the handlebars, but I feel like this would vibrate around the axis of the handlebars unless it was perfect. Its a metric bike so no construction hardware would fit perfectly and I'd have to drill them out to fit the 10mm thread.

I could also attempt the same route as the last guy, bore out the old hole in the light switch assembly and JB weld a nut in there but that failed last time and I want a faster solution than waiting for JB weld to cure forever.

Friend suggested having shop weld a nut to the bars but I feel like no reputable shop would do that or they'd charge like 60$.

I''m looking for a quick and easy and inexpensive solution, it''s a beater bike so it doesn't need to be pretty, just needs to work. State law says I have to have two mirrors and I don't like doing 180 head checks everytime I merge left.

Any ideas? I asked /o/ but they're all hayabusa bros that don't jury rig nothing. Pic related as you can see how the mirror is screwed into the switch assembly and how they can break off, if you're not familiar with them.

Longer term - grab a set of bar end mirrors off fleabay for $10..... Wait a week from chong kong.
Alternately, drill the switch block, get a spiral thread repair, jamb that in. Done.
Dont weld the fucking handlebars anon. Dont weld the fucking handlebars. Many shouldnt be drilled either, as some such as alu bars have structural integrity issues that result in fun things like the bars folding when a larger force is applied.

Bar-end mirrors are as bad as no mirrors, you have to take your eyes off the road and down on the pavement 3 feet away to use them. Also newer versions of my bike have their mirrors mounted on separate clamp/ bracket things and they cost like 7$ but I don't want to wait and there isn't much space on the bars with the old-style switch block to mount one.

Drilling out the switch block to run the threaded end, then secured with a nut sounds like it might work though. I wonder if the plastic would hold...

I have a two year old laptop that was made cheaply in Taiwan, and the rubberized plastic that coats most of the laptop's surfaces is starting to degrade and get really sticky. I've had this situation before with mice and a few other electronics, but this is the first time it's happened so quickly. My Logitech mice had no problems for at least 4 years, and I've still got a Zune HD with a similar rubberized plastic bottom that hasn't degraded at all, but has rubbed away.

Dear /diy/nosaurs,

I am planning to convert an old fridge into a fermentation chamber so that I can brew beer at home. Most people in the homebrewing community seem to use something called STC-1000, an inexpensive temperature control unit, which is basically just a temperature sensor hooked up with an MCU and two relays, that switch the fridge and an (optional) heat source

I have some experience with low-voltage circuits, but I have never really built anything that runs on the mains and I am not sure how reliable these cheap Chinese electronics are. Most people...

Those controllers are designed to handle compressors and heaters. There is even a "compressor delay" on them so you dont burn out your compressor.

The built in relays are beefy enough for fridges dont replace or supplement them. You can add fuses if you want, but I never saw a need.

I used mine to make a sous vide setup with a crock pot. It handled the load of the crockpot on "high" just fine.

There may be a better way of doing this. Depending on how household refrigerators work, cutting power to them may be noisy and hard on the system. I suspect that there is a fairly simple method of interfacing with the temperature controller inside the fridge to give it a false reading, enabling you to turn the compressor on and off.

The main limiting factor with those are the passive components and 4060 is also influenced by supply voltage variations.

I don't really care for the actual frequency all that much. I can get the 8 hours from almost any frequency smaller than a second basically. I wrote a tool that automatically calculates the pin connections based on the measured frequency.

Stability is the big factor though. From all the tutorials/blogs/websites, it seemed like the crystal oscillator thing would have a highly accurate 2 Hz output on the 4060, but I've been extremely let down.

About the voltage variation, my hookup is as follows:
