Dimming EL wire
We used a bitmap en the function you mentioned and it works perfectly now! Thank you!
hey we are trying to reproduce your work with our own image.If we use your grammaphone code we can get the image to show up on the adafruit display, but if we use the img2code mentioned in your tutorial to convert our own picuture it does not work. Can you share the ruby program you used to create the grammaphone or do you have any tips on how to fix this?
Thank you for your response! I am really happy that you answer my beginner questions :). I'm back with some questions:1. I can't find all components of your shopping list in your schematic:EL Inverter - 3v / COM-10201 = ???EL Wire = ???TRIAC - COM-09234 - MAC97A4 = BC550?Voltage Regulator COM-00527 = LM317?2. Are the two LED's (LED1 Blue 470nm, LED2 Green 555nm) necessary? Is the exact wavelength important for the dimming function?3. What's the difference between BS170 and BS171?4. What changes would be necessary if I want to power the el-powercircuit with a 3.7V lipo-battery instead of the 9V battery? Like this one: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8483I know these are maybe very idiotic questions but I hope you have some free minutes to help me out with them :D
Hi rikkkurdI'll try to build this with your instructions but for a beginner like me it would be very helpful to have a more detailed list with all parts like resistors, diodes and switches, ... Would it be possible for you to give me a more detailed list? Or do you have found a new way in the last two years to improve something?
