    Hi Bill,I did order 2 of your boards.I want to control 16 switches.How do I modify the code to get there.It is not obvious to me how to change it.Thank you!Jay

    Well, thjat did not work, all I got was a t not defined error

    It still shows as Centigrade after adding that

    No, that did not work either

    I made this & I think that covering the components with tape might make them overheat.Using double faced tape to mount the board, that would let them breath.This used 6 LG 18650 batteries, I have tons of different manufactures good batteries laying around. Now to find uses for the rest!

    I built this using a different case, one with a gauge. I also used old 18650 batteries. I timed the charge rate over a 5 day period to match them. They also charged to 4.2v easily. Thanks for this instructable.

    I am getting nothing from my DHT11. I get the same value no matter what I do.Humidity = 2147483647%Temperature = 2147483647CI even tried a different DHT11.Also, Is there a way to display Fahrenheit?Thank you!Jay

    Arduino - Points/turnout Control

    Hi BillThe relay board I am using is opto-isolated.I have modified the code mapped the outputs to 22 - 53.I also removed the current monitoring as it will not be needed.My command station is DCC++.It goes to the DCC circuit. That feeds pin 2.I am using JMRI to test it.Nothing is happening. I tested the connection from the Mega to the board with a custom sketch. It hits each relay, in order, for 150ms.Any ideas?Thanks!! Jay

    I got it working, have you developed the restart auto wake up script yet? Also, when I am installing Shairpoint, I enter "perl Build.PL" & it errors out. it says it is missing 2 files. Makefile.PL & META.yml. I can do most of the rest OK, but when I try to launch it it fails. Jay

    I will be using this board.http://www.ebay.com/itm/401237960337?var=670832094489&ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649It takes a 5v logic signal to drive the relays. It has the driver chips on it.I am using DCC++ for my DCC System. It doesn't appear that it is sending switch packets. That's another issue I am working on now.Thank you!!Jay

    Arduino - Points/turnout Control

    Hi! Great project! I was wondering if using an Arduino 16 Relay board could be used. That would simplify things considerably as an Arduino can drive the relays directly. I need to drive at least 16 solenoid switches. An Arduino Mega 2560 has enough digital pins on the end header to do the job. Question, which pin does the DCC Signal com in? D2?
