  • What about the HM-11 or HM-10. I am using them in a project that is coming soon. I just switched to the HM-11 as it is smaller. I have a Android app working with it using JSON over serial.

  • So is this what USB uses in the D-/D+ differential pairs?

  • Thanks, I have been considering that. But is there issues with flux evaporating? Even sealed containers can allow gases to seep through.

    I feel a little better since its lead free. Nice to see SFE finally has lead free stuff. Now I can get smaller quantities.

  • I should mention keeping it in a cool place in an insulated bag does okay as well. I do that since I don’t want to power another refrigerator. The peltier small coolers don’t work very well for cooling a plastic container.

  • Probably not a good idea to keep it in the same refrigerator as your food.

  • I am surprised it only take 20mA. Seems low to me, I thought it was more like an Amp. When I as younger I used to work at a Vacuum shop doing repairs. One evening I grabbed two test leads at the same time while they were powered. (The other guy didn’t like the rubber boots). I ended up in the hospital. But no damage. It sure felt like a lot more than 20mA. It was 110V from one hand to the other. I couldn’t let go till I was unpluged. I felt really good after until I almost passed out. The paramedic said she was surprised I didn’t have burns and that the grease on my hands helped.

    I tell you hearing the sirens coming for you really makes you think. Be careful with power!

  • Or if you want just username put friedcircuits which is my Github username.

  • Sounds good! You can just put William from FriedCircuits.us. I am interested to how it improves ;). I am just getting back into the Rover5 and working on getting the BeagleBone with Arduino for the low level stuff working. I think I will be going the ROS route. Should be posting soon on http://mobilewill.us.

    Thanks Toni!

  • Hi,

    Early Last year I made a library for this controller. I just saw that SFE has it now and decided to post it. I posted it on Github so at least its a starting point. I am sure it can be improved but all the basic functions are there including encoders.

    http://goo.gl/Nx1CTf

    For info on the encoders it uses the teensy library inside of this library.

    Check out and let me know what you think.

  • ;) Love Halo. I am glad I never ended up with one of the old controllers, terrible.

No public wish lists :(
