Introduction: Arduino Nano Capacitance Meter
This project is pratically three components because it's formed of a 16X2 LCD Display, a potentiometer 10K, and an Arduino Nano. The rest of parts are a PCB 5cm x 7cm, 1 X 40 HEADER, 0.1" SPACING, and 4-625" STAINLESS STEEL HEX STANDOFF, M-F, 6-32. In a nutshell, Capacitor Meter can measure from 0.000 to 1000uF.
Step 1: Bill of Materials
What you will need:
1-16X2 LCD Display
1-5cm x 7cm PCB
1-1 X 40 HEADER, 0.1" SPACING
4-625" STAINLESS STEEL HEX STANDOFF, M-F, 6-32
Some Connecting wires
Soldering 60/40 roll
Step 2: Schematic
This is your schematic so that you can construct the project correctly.
Step 3: Preparing Your LCD
Taking the 1 X 40 HEADER, 0.1" SPACING, cut 16 pins and insert that part in your LCD.
Step 4: Preparing the Arduino Nano
Taking the 1 X 40 HEADER, 0.1" SPACING, cut 6 pins and 3 pins and insert those parts in your Arduino Nano. That is, the 6 pins are to install in D2-D7 and +5V-GND pins.
Step 5: Installing the LCD
Taking the PCB, insert the LCD previously prepared.
Step 6: Installing the Arduino and Pot
Taking the circuit with the LCD previously inserted, install Arduino and pot.
Step 7: GND Connections
Do GND connections each other LCD, Pot, and Arduino nano.
Step 8: +5V Connections
Do +5V connections each other LCD, Pot, and Arduino nano.
Step 9: Central Pin Pot
Connect the central pin from pot to LCD.
Step 10: Connect Arduino D2-D7
Connect the arduino pins from D2 to D7 to its respective LCD pins according to schematic.
Step 11: Install the Hardware
Install the 4-625" STAINLESS STEEL HEX STANDOFF, M-F, 6-32.
