kinasmith "both parts are very similar. the TLC555IP has a wider operating temperature (-40to+85c), and will work down to 3volt power input. From the datashee..." | Read more » over 3 years ago
kinasmith "Hello again. I just did two quick screen captures explaining how to do this with CoolTerm, using code from this GIST. The First one is here: https:..." | Read more » over 3 years ago
kinasmith "sorry, I wasn't very clear in that previous message. I'll try to clarify. You'll need an Arduino in the middle between the sensor and the computer...." | Read more » over 3 years ago
kinasmith "so, how long will the sensor need to collect data for? If there is reliable power, and it's inside of a house, and it isn't running for weeks on en..." | Read more » over 3 years ago
kinasmith "I've read through the datasheet/manual for this sensor. Their use of audio connectors for signal and power connections is pretty questionable, but ..." | Read more » over 3 years ago
kinasmith "this is actually an excellent solution to this problem without adding additional parts/complexity. The 1.1v internal reference is much more stable ..." | Read more » over 3 years ago

kinasmith "@KathleenSmart, I never got to the point of fully documenting the build process. They still need some work. Redesigning the sensor body so that it ..." | Read more » about 4 years ago

kinasmith "Hah. That's flattering, but my background isn't electrical engineering...I just kind of stumbled into it. The circuit is pretty obvious now that I ..." | Read more » over 5 years ago
