What began as a programmable delay timer relay is now the latest watchdog timer for my home automation pc. This is part 2 of the new watchdog timer project. I will be replacing the original one that I created nearly 2 years ago!
Part 1 of this project is here:
Step 1: Getting the Relay Ready.
Step 2: Removing the Original Watchdog.
I will use these delay timer relays for future projects.
Step 3: Installing the New Watchdog.
Reset to motherboard
Pulse to reset from the labjack u3 hv.
I used a cable tie to secure the watchdog and now it works perfectly. I pressed the pushbutton and the pc rebooted. When the automation software is running, the led display countdown is reset every 10 seconds. If the pc crashes for 15mins the new watchdog will reset it every 15 minutes until the automation software comes back up to reset the watchdog.
Step 4: A Glimpse at the Automation Software!
