Mobile Solar Power Station
Compact Pegboard Tool Case
I added a 285 watt solar panel to my van with two 6v golf cart batteries to power my Celestron CGE14 telescope. Similar purpose just different choices in the build details. http://www.instructables.com/id/Mobile-Solar-Power-Station/
Mine used the 'booth' part almost exactly like this instructable. The electronics were more like the electronics of http://www.instructables.com/id/Raspberry-Pi-photo...Best Wishes
1. You have a hearse. Cool. Hope it is empty.2. What do you currently do with the power you generate? 75 watts could run a fan to cool the back but air conditioners suck too much juice (like 115 v 11 amp with unknown surge) Best Wishes!
I made a similar one with my hearse I have 75 watts of power running through the back half of it.from my experience i need to find a wayto cool the back down on hot days its stifling otherwise.l get heat sick was thinking about adding a roof top window ac unit but dont know if thats possible yet but otherwise it works good during cooler weather.
Nice instructable! I love to see solar projects done well. I do not believe, however, that your single EverStart UH1 battery is providing anything near 220 AH. I believe they have a reserve capacity of 30, making them more like 20 or less AH. I'm also not sure how well they perform when deeply discharged. They are a good quality battery for the money, though, just maybe not designed for deep discharge applications.Best Wishes!
Interfacing Electronic Circuits to Arduinos
Sorry to have missed your question until now. I have no direct knowledge of ARINC 568 (It isn't even available at the ARINC store. Is it very old?). Many of the ARINC standards describe the protocols that are sent over ARINC 429 data bus. If so, then yes. If Arinc 568 is a different data bus then no, it wouldn't.Best Wishes.
Will this work for Arinc 568.
Thank you. Unfortunately I reused the parts for other projects so I am currently susceptible to an EMP :-(. I'll have to get this system back in the stowed configuration just to be ready!

Yet Another Arduino 110v Power Controller
Really cool! Would love to put the image on usb in an old router... Is that possible?
Nice start!According to the Axis of Awesome you will need 4 chords to play any pop song ;-). So just a little more work and you can play them all!Best Wishes.

Nice instructible.Your circuit was a little difficult to follow, however. I would have labeled +15v as BATTERY and the +12V as something else such as SWITCHED_BATTERY. As shown it implies that you have several voltage levels and that you connect +15v to +12v.The purpose of Relay #2 is to switch off the power under the command of the microcontroller after it has been turned on via SW3. Wouldn't it be better to power Relay #2 coil from +12V instead of +15V? That way the relay 2 circuitry is powered only after the +12V is enabled thus ensuring it draws no power when not enabled.Best Wishes.
If you are willing to give up on the SW3 monitor and want to take it one step further and remove all high impedance de-energized paths, I think this would also work.Best WIshes
Maybe it is not his car!
Very nice instructable!I made mine on my van here (http://www.instructables.com/id/Mobile-Solar-Power..., also to be used for camping/astronomy. Lead acid batteries can out gas hydrogen when charging so be sure the vent them properly!Is the battery a deep cycle? You might want a deep cycle battery or you'll want to discharge it only a little bit to give the battery a long life.Back of the napkin calculations: If you want only 50% discharge on your battery then each night you will use at most 17 amp hours. Your 100 watt outputs say 7 amp hours in full sunlight and therefore should replenish the energy used in maybe 3 hours of sunlight. Looks like a good fit for low, winter sun. You'll produce more energy than you can store in the other seasons. You may want to consider adding another battery when your pocketbook can take it to be sure you can continue to have lights after three cloudy days.Again, it was a very nice instructable!Thanks!
I also have a Chrysler Town & Country and am considering putting a solar panel on the roof. I was wondering why you didn't install your panel directl to the luggage rack?

Could something like this be used to convert analog NAV output from a radio into ARINC-429 output?
Thanks for quick reply, now it's easier to understand but i still didn't understand one thing.What actual processor chip pin numbers do you use for serial io port #1?
Idk if this thread is still alive, but i need a help.According to the last figure where it's show how DEI pins are connected to Arduino mega pins, you connected 34, 33 DEI's pins to 11 and 10 pins of Arduino while they're not digital IOs and you can't control them in order to send data. So, is it right and i'm horribly confused?Secondly, you created a simple protocol over the serial io port #1 (pins 1 and 2) while at the same time you use pin 2 for /OE2 input(DEI's pin 10). Is something wrong with it?Best Wishes,Valikhan))
