In this video we find out why a Switchmode powersupply went faulty, and sparked in a closet full of clothes and wooden shelves. And introduce you to a Native of South Africas, Kwazulu Natal, South Coast. Can we fix it?
In this video we take a look at a Solar Hybrid Inverter, that has a burned MPPT board, that has burned right through. We test the system, and see if it works or is dead..
In this short video, we go through installing a whole house energy monitor, including installing the Current Transformer Non Invasively in the house’s Distribution Board / Consumer Unit / Switchboard / Fusebox.
We also use the Nooelec RTLSDR dongle to see what frequency the Transmitter is communicating on.
What causes most remotes in an area to not work properly? It is when a technician wires a remote to an alarm sensor the Wrong Way. A Remote Jammer. What we found, and how we rectified it. All it needed was a bit of Flipping Logic
In the final part of this Project series, we delve into the Electronics (The DMX Shield), as well as the Arduino DMX Code, and show you how it all goes together (including a nighttime video of the effect)
In Part 2 of this Project, we work on the Physical Hardware, by Casting the LED Block in Resin
In this video we start a unique project. Converting an Indoor Fog Machine into an outdoor attention-getting effect. We dismantle the unit, go through its basic operation, look at its guts, and reveal our plan going forward.
And now the conclusion.
We replace the faulty Switchmode controller IC, Suspect Main Filter Capacitor, and the fuse, and test the unit
In this video we start diagnosing a Behringer DCX2496 that died suddenly..
