  • hey buddy, this problem bother me for a year!! easy to to solve. the regulator over heat, it resets vy quickly. use 3.7v to 5v battery for the arduino chip is perfect. use 2nd 12v battery for inverter. that’s my solution for now.

    it just doesn’t work well with only one 12v battery for both inverter and the chip(reset all the time)

  • The parts, triac that you mention, does sparkfun sell it? I try to find, but cant find it.

  • Hi, I’m using a normal Xbee(300 ft range) for my EL SEQ and Xbee Explorer, if i want to control in further range, can i replace Xbee Pro (1 mile) at Xbee Explorer ONLY? while still using normal Xbee in all my EL SEQ.


  • yes, it’s working^^ Thanks a lot.

    Some of my EL SEQ’s channels are not working, what happen to it? 1. I’ve tried to change another EL WIRE, it’s not working, sketch is alright with another EL SEQ too. when i test it, there’s voltage, 150V, It just doesn’t light up when connect to EL WIRE.

    2, Is it spoiled by “short circuit” accidentally? If yes, what should i replace?

  • Hi, everything is going smoothly, thanks for your advises so far. I go my EL SEQ with your sample code(with xbee) working.

    I try to modify the code to suit my sketch, but i failed.

    what should i add i front of sketch if i want it to be like this

    i want my sketch to start running after i type “start” in terminal

    ??????(what code should i write here)??????

    define C 4

    define D 5

    define E 6

    define G 7

    void setup(){

    pinMode(C, OUTPUT); pinMode(D, OUTPUT); pinMode(E, OUTPUT); pinMode(G, OUTPUT); } void loop(){ digitalWrite(C, HIGH); digitalWrite(D, LOW); delay(662);

    digitalWrite(C, LOW); digitalWrite(D, HIGH); delay(666); }

  • Hi, I face another problem now. The X-CTU program can’t detect my Xbee, ask me to press “Reset”, but there’s no “Reset” in the Xbee Explorer.

    What’s should i do?

  • oh, your information is really helpful, i’m one step forward to my project^^ thanks a lot mate.

  • Oh…no wonder. Can I upload sketch using xbee wirelessly? Or is there any modification that I can do to plug in xbee without solder it?

  • Thanks mate

  • Hi, do i need to press “reset” before i upload new sketch? Seems like cant upload another NEW sketch after the 1st one.

No public wish lists :(
