    Can I use my open segment serial display to display my 12v battery power? I am a novice and although it says you can plug it into a 12v power source, I am wary.

    I just want it to display voltage i.e. 12.1, 11.5, whatever. I really like the display on this item, I would like to use it for power display. Any suggestions?


  • Tutorial - Using OpenSegment | about 4 months ago

    I have a couple of these and wanted to utilize them in my R2-D2. They have a wonderful level of color and I want that on the inside of the body. Initially i wanted to use them for voltage display but I understand that it will not work on a 12v battery, as a meter. So question,

      Can it be used to log time of use?  I.e. it starts counting when I power up my R2, then pause when R2 is turned off, then continue where it left off, etc. until i reset counter.

    *I am starting to implement i2c in some of the electronics inside of R2. I would like to understand how I can utilize the open segment for more than just a clock :)

    I am looking for a way to display voltage on my R2-D2. Will this work? *I am still learning.
