Products | Urbiotica. U-Sound | Urbiotica. U-Sound is a wireless sensor developed by Urbiotica which belongs to our smart environment solution. The sensor measures the equivalent continuous sound level (LAeq) in real time with the objective of monitoring and controlling urban noise levels. It allows doing a suitability analysis of the day-to-day activities and it can work as an input data for the development of strategies to promote and guarantee healthier city sound levels. Features Easy to install – Sensor can be installed in few minutes.Flexible devices distribution – It increases the density of measuring points in the city and allows deployment in isolated locations.Rechargeable battery by lamppost supply power or by alternative energy using solar panel.Resistant to extreme weather conditions.Remotely upgrading software.High integration capacity with existing meteorological, noise and air quality monitoring systems.

Thanks to these features and data measured by the sensor: How does it work. Home | Urbiotica. AirCasting. 3610_1 - 5mm RGB Super Flux ( Bag of 5 ) Related Products You can control up to 64 LEDs with: 1032 - PhidgetLED-64 Advanced You can also connect your LEDs to the digital outputs on the 1012 - PhidgetInterfaceKit 0/16/16. Connection When connecting to a 1032, use the LED cables and connect the anode to the red wire and the three cathodes to three black wires.

When connecting to Digital Outputs, connect the anode to the 5V and the three cathodes to three Digital Outputs. For more information on LEDs, visit the LED Primer. Note: When connecting to Digital Outputs, the LED will turn on when the Digital Output is OFF. 3303_0 - NEMA-17 Bipolar 48mm Stepper. Product Description This motor is a larger NEMA-17 motor that produces a whopping 4800g-cm of holding torque. The motor is also very efficient in converting current into torque and velocity. Motor Controller and Connection The 3303 stepper motor connects to a bipolar motor controller such as the 1067 - PhidgetStepper Bipolar HC.

The following table shows how to connect the motor wires to the board connectors to produce a clockwise rotation in the stepper motor when increasing position. Note: Make sure to unplug the power cord from the motor controller before switching wires around. Mounting Bracket The mounting holes on this motor are compatible with the 3338 - Mounting Bracket (NEMA17). Warning. GPRS/GSM Quadband Module for Arduino Tutorial (SIM900) Tutorial Index Go to IndexIntroduction NOTE: The codes of the tutorial have developed to work on Arduino IDE v1.0.1 Go to IndexStep 1: The shield (hardware) The board (shield) we are going to use in this tutorial is the GPRS/GSM Quadband Module for Arduino (SIM900) from Cooking hacks. The GPRS shield is fully compatible with old Arduino USB versions, Duemilanove and Mega.

GPRS Shield diagram version 2: NOTE: The Arduino/Raspberry Pi jumper MUST be in Arduino position. GPRS Shield diagram version 1: The LED of the shield shows the status of the GPRS+GPS module. Go to IndexStep 2: Using GSM/GPRS module with AT commands Important issues: Use capital letters for AT commands. The first thing we are going to do with the module is to connect the module to a PC directly (using an Arduino as gateway) and check the basic AT commands. Remember take out the ATmega microcontroller from the Arduino gateway. Basic configuration: Connect the shield to the Arduino gateway. All the AT commands here by Show Code. GSMShield. The Arduino GSM shield allows an Arduino board to connect to the internet, send and receive SMS, and make voice calls using the GSM library. The shield will work with the Arduino Uno out of the box. The shield will work with the Mega, Mega ADK, and Leonardo boards with a minor modification.

The Due is not supported at this time. The GSM library is included with Arduino IDE 1.0.4 and later. What is GSM GSM is an international standard for mobile telephones. Among other things, GSM supports outgoing and incoming voice calls, Simple Message System (SMS or text messaging), and data communication (via GPRS). What is GPRS GPRS is a packet switching technology that stands for General Packet Radio Service. A number of technologies such as SMS rely on GPRS to function. Network operator requirements To use GPRS for internet access, and for the Arduino to request or serve webpages, you need to obtain the Access Point Name (APN) and a username/password from the network operator.

By Member #645478 verified purchaser I bought this (supposedly) Original Arduino board a few weeks ago and the Arduino IDE shows me that it is not a Certified board. Single T replied on May 14, 2015: The Uno and other “official” Arduino boards such as the Mega, are not manufactured by the original crew. 5 of 6 found this helpful: Arduino is amazing by Member #633749 verified purchaser Bought it to use as a test mule for my new designs, and have become hooked. 5 of 7 found this helpful: in my mind it's fake by Member #151037 verified purchaser Sparkfun should make clear that this is an and not board.

Single T replied on November 10, 2015: If you are not interested in a Arduino Uno from the .org crew, we suggest you check out our Redboard! 2 of 3 found this helpful: Great, but Windows 8 makes it a nightmare. by Member #667699 verified purchaser The item itself is perfect. 1 of 2 found this helpful: EasyDriver Stepper Motor Driver - ROB-10267. Description: The EasyDriver is a simple to use stepper motor driver, compatible with anything that can output a digital 0 to 5V pulse (or 0 to 3.3V pulse if you solder SJ2 closed on the EasyDriver).

EasyDriver requires a 7V to 20V supply to power the motor and can power any voltage of stepper motor. The EasyDriver has an on board voltage regulator for the digital interface that can be set to 5V or 3.3V. Connect a 4-wire stepper motor and a microcontroller and you've got precision motor control! EasyDriver drives bi-polar motors, and motors wired as bi-polar. This is the newest version of EasyDriver V4 co-designed with Brian Schmalz. Note: Do not connect or disconnect a motor while the driver is energized. Note: This product is a collaboration with Brian Schmalz. Features: Documents: Replaces: ROB-09402. 1133_0 - Sound Sensor.
