    Re: Converting PULSIN reading to RPM, from PC Fan?

    It makes very little difference now that you've managed a method that works, but there is a pretty good read on measuring frequency with Pulsin here:...

    Re: Menu building

    You are correct and what you suggest is exactly my strategy. However, it is necessary to have simple means to correct in response to unforeseen circumstances. I often will cancel dosing when I am on...

    Re: MCS is Crashing

    I find it highly unlikely that it has anything at all to do with PBP (other than the obvious interruption to it). If so, I would think every user (having the exact same files loaded) would have the...

    Re: 12LF1572 Support

    For those of you waiting on the edge of your seat for resolution... Somewhere I've missed an update. Newest version of PBP3 is 3.0.9 an offers support for several chips 3.0.4 does not. I suppose it...

    Re: 12LF1572 Support

    I have verified that I have "gold". Oddly, it is difficult to do from the product directly (I couldn't find anywhere that there's a designation in plain language). I had to log on to my account and...

    Re: 12LF1572 Support

    After installing MPLABB 8.92, I am still unable to find any support for 12F1572. Perhaps I have "issues" elsewhere. Using Microcode Studio 5.0.0.0 and Compiler version is PBPX 3.0.4.4. MeLabs...

    12LF1572 Support

    I see here: http://www.pbp3.com/devicelist.html that PBP3 supports the 12F1572, but I find no support files in my installation. Am I missing an update/ upgrade? Possibly I am to copy/ modify some...
  12. Re: Electrical Issue: PIC input false triggering, Signal Noise suspected.

    No offense, but I hope you are forced back here regularly as this build progresses. I would love to feel (in some small FREE way) that I had helped to make it come together. I've seen many genius...
  13. Re: Electrical Issue: PIC input false triggering, Signal Noise suspected.

    I'm not a professional; I'm a hobbyist. My only qualification is a lack of expertise that has lead to many similar issues - odd, inconsistent behavior that seemingly comes from nowhere. For me, it...

    Re: Round the clock

    I do not follow the conversation well enough to speak in context, but in doing a similar thing I found the solution to calculate direction and distance separately; then, once I'd accurately...
  15. Re: PWM of voltage input to PIC - will it damage the chip?

    I think that you might easily do both with the same chip. Google "transistor as switch" this will allow all five LEDS to ramp-up from the same PWM output without issue (and the power needed to run...

    Re: different software times, impossible?

    It is, I understand, also possible to run more than one pic from a clock source. You mentioned connecting pics serially, but I do not see this as a solution; however, two (or more) sync'ed to the...

    I think there are several methods you ay use.

    You could have an interrupt routine that beeps for a short time, repeatedly. In the interrupt set a flag that increments with each very short beep...

    My own preference would be some flavor of Raspberry Pi - bit of overkill I imagine, but very doable and cheap enough.

    Re: Hot tub temp control

    I don't think you need PID or PWM, just a thermometer and a relay should do fine I would think.

    If it takes one minute to heat the tub one degree, and it cools at the same rate, then you may keep...

    You might also explore the use of MAX and MIN for setting bounds in situations like:

    if Event1_OT_Hour >23 then Event1_OT_Hour = 23
    or
    if Event1_OT_Hour <1 then Event1_OT_Hour ...

    Re: Moving menu down in LCD

    I think that Select and Case will work:
