Radioactive lift controls recalled in France

NEW DELHI (AFP) - India's atomic safety body said Thursday that radioactive scrap metal which found its way into buttons installed into lifts in France had been traced back to a western Indian foundry.At least four Indian firms were involved in the manufacture of the components, an official said, but it was still unclear where the contaminated scrap originated."We are tracking back the whole chain," Satya Pal Agarwal, head of the radiological safety division of India's Atomic Energy Regulatory Board, told AFP."We are taking steps in each place. Exporters have been advised to buy monitors to check their materials before exporting."France's Mafelec firm delivered thousands of lift buttons to Otis, a subsidiary of the US elevator company, which installed them in at least 500 lifts in the country over the summer.Otis has said it is now in the process of removing the buttons, after France's Nuclear Safety Authority announced Tuesday that 20 workers who handled the lift buttons had been exposed to excessive levels of radiation.The French nuclear safety agency has said the lift buttons contained traces of radioactive Cobalt 60.AFP articleSteel items imported {into Sweden} from India showing faint traces of radioactivity were found in Sweden, before the same substance was traced on Indian-made lift buttons in France, officials said Wednesday.The levels of Cobalt 60, a radioactive form of the metal, were considered harmless and the steel components have not been recalled, the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM) told AFP."Dutch customs discovered that a shipment of industrial flanges from India to Sweden showed traces of Cobalt 60," SSM spokesman Mattias Skoeld said.Focus Agency feedFrench elevator maker Otis said it would remove the buttons from hundreds of lifts it has installed after a radioactivity scare over Indian-supplied materials.The company made the announcement after France's Nuclear Safety Authority (ASN) said 20 French workers who had handled buttons used in lifts had been exposed to to excessive levels of radiation.An Otis spokesman said the firm's plan to remove the buttons "concerned 500 to 600 lifts out of the 2,500 that Otis has installed, modernised or repaired between August 21 and October 9 even if there is no danger for users."The ASN classed the incident at factory of the Mafelec firm in the east-central French town of Chimilin at "Level Two" on a scale of seven because of the exposure of more than 10 people to doses exceeding the reglementary limit.SA Times article

How do you control 2 motors, 4 servos and 2 stepper motors for a RC airplane? Answered

For the upcoming Epilog challenge I was wondering if there is a 4 servo 2 motor controller for a R/C airplane.If there is can you give me the specifications on what to look for? Is there also a way to control 2 stepper motors from the signal from the transmitter, it has to be semi-light, or light enough for a RC airplane. How could a program both the motor/servo control and the stepper controller?

Converting Solar Garden Lights to 6V?

I'm trying to change the battery in a solar walkway light to a 6V. The reason for this is Im also now using a light that contains 21 LED's at 4.5V instead of the 1 LED that is in the light. The charge for the battery is from an external solar panel at 10V. I don't think the charge controller in the light can handle the volts in the battery as the light is always on - even when the panel is not connected. Like the power from the battery is going backwards thru the controller. I do see a diode in the controller and was wondering if I just need to increase the size of it? Please help. Thanx...

Has anyone modified a Minn Kota trolling motor? Answered

I have inherited a pair of MK trolling motors that have been modified to the point that they doin't work any more. The pevious owner wanted to make them remote control, so he attached a receiver from an RC car and an electric gear motor was attached to the end of the throttle handle.  I think the soft rheostat has been damaged, so now it doesn't work anymore. In the attached picture we have a white soft rheostat with a cable to the controller. I believe the controller is okay. I think I want to attach a new potentiomoter to the cable to run the two motors. Has anyone worked on one before? Please don't ask me to ask Minn Kota. They are less than helpful. The board containing teh ribbon cable is no longer made. And the newer versions have one ribbon cable rather than two.

how to use bike gears to control speed of vertical axis windmill for pumping water?

I would like to use bike gears to switch gears eighter clockwise, or counterclockwise on a vertical axis windmill for pumping water. The purpose is to slow down the speed of the spinging rotor or switch it intoa idler gear, to allow the rotor to keep spinging, and to disconnect the water pump, so it wont' be damaged in high winds; Also not to slam the rotor to a sudden stop, by ingageing a brake. I am building this not only for myself, but also my church for them to give away free to needly people around the world. Thank you for any and all help in this matter.

VAWT a new way to wind generation

Guys need help to realise its feasiblity and pros & cons. This project will comprise of a renewable energy source which is controlled by TI msp430 controller by closed loop system. This renewable energy source will use a magnetically levitated vertical axis wind turbine with single phase permanent magnet alternator made by our team. There will be 3 stationary wind guide vanes/flaps of concave shape on the outer periphery of turbine. These vanes will be controlled by dc gear motor for constant wind flow and protection against high speed winds. Using perturb & observe MPPT algorithm on DC-DC boost converter, constant DC voltage for GRID integration is made. A lower energy Bluetooth module will send data on user computer about whole system parameter, hence making the whole system to be smart and hence data is saved in database. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fC5hYLjhO9U OR YOU CAN SEE https://www.instructables.com/id/Building-a-new-type-Vertical-Axis-Wind-Turbine-VAW/

Multi Flash Flasher circuit?

I am trying to make my own flasher controller for a pair of LED light modules.  The 12 volt, low amp draw lights are to be used on a golf cart that we use when the patrol cars are not needed on campus. Traffic control is the main use due to being able to put it anywhere the patrol cars will not go. The flash patterns can be any type as long as it is automatic, and keep changing, like the strobe lights on police, fire, and EMS units. Some have 4 patterns, some have up to 18 patterns. Any one have a diagram or circuit design that may work? Thanks for any help.

Instructables HQ flooded!

The San Francisco Bay area is being hammered by a series of winter storms right now. There are gusts to 75 MPH and a torrent of rain. All that wind-swept rain has flooded our server room and created a foot-deep lake on the runways outside the control tower! If things aren't working right on the site, it's the rain's fault, really...This storm is actually pretty tame by East Cost standards, and I'm proud to report I got a little bit of kitesurfing in yesterday morning on the front of it before the wind and rain truly picked up. It's just that we have perfect weather 90% of the year here, so it's really the relative difference, not the absolute magnitude, that makes people talk about how bad it is.

Easiest route for me to take in the hopes of making a completely waterproof guitar hero/rock band controller(wireless)?

I've been looking for waterproof momentary switches, and the such, and was planning on a sort of plexiglass/silicon enclosure for the main electronics. It just has to be playable, not looking to set any records on it, more of just something cool to play with than a rock band expert's ultimate plaything. This is for use inside of a pool at a friend of mine's pool parties (shallow end) on the projector screen. Every other part of the electronics setup is directly poolside, a safe distance away, and raise away from the pool slightly. I'm tech savvy, and could probably figure this out, but as any DIYer knows, sometimes other people see an easier way that should have been apparent from the get-go, haha.

Is there a formula for calculating the evaporation of water on dry land? Answered

     I have pigs and during the summer they get hot. I've tried misters and timer controlled sprinklers but neither suited my needs, the pigs either got ahold of the mister line and ripped it down or i just forgot to head out and turn it on and off, and the sprinkler on a timer was never right, on hot days it underwatered leaving the pen dry and dusty which is unpleasent for the pigs and on cold days it overwatered leaving the pen a muddy mess which was also unpleasant for the pigs (contrary to popular belief pigs actually don't like mud its just something cool for them to roll in and natural sunscreen. Pigs would much rather have clear water raining down on them). I decided I'm going to make a simple Arduino controlled pig sprinkler. I'm going to equip it with a temperature and humidity sensor and I want it to plug the data it gets into a formula which calculates how long it will take for the water to evaporate, it will then take that data and use it to calculate the time in between sprinkler runs. But the obvious dilemma here is I cant seem to find a formula which will work. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks a bunch.            Harry88
