24 volt motor run time

Hi all, We just finished a remote control lawn mower project that utilizes 2 24V wheel chair motors and two wheel chair batteries for drive power. The balde is powered by a gas engine. The unit weighs in at around 260 lbs and is used for some serious slope mowing. The issue I have run into is that I can only get about 1 hour run time before having to recharge. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to increase the run time without decreasing power? Thanks

Did you miss me?

You may have noticed that I mysteriously stopped posting for a couple of days. I've been camping! I came on as a last-minute substitute when another leader was unexpectedly hospitalised, and whizzed off to Gilwell 24 with a small group of our Explorer Scouts. It's an awesome event for teenage scouts - from 09:00 Saturday, to 09:00 Sunday, 24 hours of non-stop activities without the requirement of sleep.  Four thousand Explorer Scouts took up the challenge, and almost all of them managed a full 24 hours of extreme Scouting. 3G Swing Archery Bushcraft Zone Bouldering Campfire Climbing (Outdoor rock and revolving wall) Craft zone Crate stacking Disco Fairground Flying Trapeze Geocaching Giant games Gilwell gauntlet Global Zone - including Shelterbox High ropes course Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting Mountain boarding Orienteering Outdoor arena Quad Bikes Outdoor Woodland Quaser Raft Racing / Boat Racing Rifle Shooting Competition Scavenger hunt Scuba Diving Slacklining Speed climbing Segways Simulators Technology zone Water rockets Assault Course Car driving Go Karts Power Boking Inflatables Fire Building Fishing Military Activity Team Speed Stacking Caving Zorbing As well crafts and other activities going on all the time (I had my first go at wood-turning at 14:00, and was soldering together an AM band radio at 22:30 (goodness me, the writing on a capacitor gets small later at night!)). Add to that a month's rain in about 20 hours, giving liquid mud on the scale of Glastonbury, it's hardly a surprise that every single Explorer fell asleep on the train home. Because my standing-in was very short notice, none of my electronics were properly charged, but I did get a few snaps of the atmosphere before my iPod completely died. I have never been so wet or so dirty on a camping trip, and I was taking it easy - it's the first time I've been forced to pack my tent away wet and muddy at the end of a camp. If you're a Scout or an Explorer, and will be over 13½ next July, why not take up the challenge yourself? If you fancy taking part, offering an activity, or otherwise getting involved in next year's event, they are already taking comments and ideas.  If you're not in Scouting, and didn't realise it was so awesome (or that girls are allowed at any age), then why not think about joining? (As an aside, I'd never seen Rock-It-Ball being played before.  Looks fun.)

Step down transformer

Hi I would like to build my own power supply. i am a noob at electronics but hopefully this project will improve my skills... http://electronics-lab.com/projects/power/001/index.html This is what I want to build The problem I am not sure on is the 1st initial step of the step down transformer. I have only found a 24 volts 4.16 amps with 100va. I want to keep the project as exact as possible and was currious whether if the current rating is higher than 3 amps for that particular circuit I want to build can it blow any of the circuitry. The transformer I found was 24 volts 100 va and has an output current of 4.16 amps. Is that a problem or will it only draw as much current as needed?

A do-it-all-in-one-cable For laptops(an idea) Using the ATX 24...

I just recently got an idea,its kind of an ingenious(well i think so) idea.ITs a do-it-all-in-one cable,a cable that connects to your laptops s-video,rca,vga,sound,and even usb through one cable using CAT5 cable for it(If cat5 contains enough cables in it)The cable at both ends will have the ATX 24 pin connector that connects to a project box,but thats another part,we will get to that laterS-Video ---------- 3 Data 1 common groundRCA ---------------- 1 Data 1 common groundVGA ---------------- 5 Data 3 common groundUSB --------------- 2 Data 1 5V 1 common groundSound ------------ 2 Data 1 Common groundGrand total = 15-mixing grounds/ 19 - separate groundsSo according to that,i would need 2 and a half CAT5 Cables(if i use separate grounds),which i am going to squish together into one big cable.Or 2 CAT5 cables (if i mix all of the grounds)Now,i would have all of the cables squished together into some tubing(heat shrink?,no too expensive in such a large amount)with the ATX 24 pin connector at each end.Now,the project box,it will have the opposite connector(the one that the other connector connects to) will go into a box with that connector soldered on a breadboard inside of it(i could get the connector from a computer,or 2(i have 2 fried motherboards so ...))and in the other side of the (plastic)box would be all of the connectors(Sound connector,VGA,Svideo,RCA,usb(maybe for IR receiver or something))that connects to the TV,or monitor.The other end with the same connector would connect to the laptop,it would have VGA,RCA or SVideo,Sound,and USBSo now that i got my point out,what do you think?That the all-in-one cable,or a bunch of tangled cables just to put video and sound to the tv,and that is without USB,whats the fun of not having a usb connector from your laptop 20 feet away from you,you could connect a web cam,to see yourself on the tv,or a ir receiver,to control the pc without a keyboard and mouse,or whatever else you can think of.So...what do you think(poin tout any mistakes i have made by chance)So...comment...or whateveri think this would be pretty nifty,no?

How to step down and convert wall outlet to 24 VDC?

Hi I am working on a project and i need to convert 120 VAC from a wall outlet to 24 VDC to run my device. I was wondering if anyone has a suggestion if i should first transform the 120 VAC to 24 VAC and then convert the 24 VAC to 24 VDC? or if there is a 120 VAC to 24 VDC with a normal wall plug for sale.

Where do you find 24 Bit Audio files??

Hey guys, I've been googling around, and I'm not nessesarily looking for a "warez" site, but I'm trying to figure out where you would find 24 bit audio files, like a flac file or something (stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec). I have a 24 bit creative sound card, I figure, why not LISTEN to it in 24 bit, but of course that wouldn't make sense unless it was recorded in 24 bit in the first place, as far as I know you can't really "upscale" audio such as that with a video file. Any suggestions peeps?? Pm me if you have to.

24 LED strip

Hello all, I've got what i thought would be a simple project so i could take some impressive long exposure photos. eg: www.flickr.com/photos/24528515@N05/2356088056/in/pool-lightpainted Heres the materials i have: (also see pic) 1: 24 white led's soldered in series (yes i started without knowing what i was doing :P ) 2: A small 4.5v battery pack. 3: A simple clicky switch. Heres what i dont have: 1: A clue about resistors or where to add them. 2: I don't know what voltage the leds are as they were removed from a broken led lamp by my brother. (who also dumped the casing so i cant see what the circuit on it looked like) 3: Any more patience. :) The third pic just shows one of the 24 leds being tested with a 3v battery. I've done this with all 24 to make sure that there are no dead ones. Can anyone help my ignorance?

VESA Mount for 24" Monitors ... design request

HI folks. Just wanting to see if anybody had a good way to mount some computer monitors. I'm in the market for two 24" monitors (widescreen) that I want to mount side by each vertically (not using the original mounts that come with the units, as they only go horizontal). Since VESA mounts are standard, I thought there could be a way of putting them onto something behind my desk so that they just fit that way. Any ideas?

24 x 24 LED Matrix Project

I would like to share with you all an awesome project and some doubts and questions related to the same. This is a 24 x 24 LED Matrix project taken from here. All the data is taken from the same link. 24×24 LED dot matrix -->   This is pretty old circuit but I found it interesting to describe here. 24×24 LED display is formed by using 9 8×8 Dot LED matrix displays, that are connected to AT90S2313 MCU. MCU scans an indicator lines in series. Special PC program is written which allows drawing images on screen and transfer them via COM port to device. You can send images in series what gives an animation effect.   Circuit is was built using obsolete AT90S2313 MCU which can be replaced by Attiny2313 MCU with minor modifications of firmware. To make program work you event don’t need to connect device to computer COM port. You can store images in other master MCU EEPROM memory Each received byte from UART is immediately sent to 8 LEDs, second byte to next 8 LEDs and so on. Bytes has to be sent one by one without delay. USART is working at 115200 baud, 8bits, no parity. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE PROBLEMS >1>I really dont know if the circuit is good or not tell me if it is going to work. >2>I cant get 8x8 dot matrix displays so i am going to normal leds to a 24x24 one. >3>I have never worked with bus before (the bold red lines in the circuit) so i dont know how to connect it. >4>The schems are segmented i am finding it hard to figure out how to connect some of the segments. >5>Also i need to know how to hook it up to my pc. >6>I have never done programming so i need to know how to program the ic. THANK YOU I couldnt get the images uploaded nicely so i linked them. 1 2

However l want when one types a text and or numbers -maximum seven, they should be displayed permanently or stationary except of course if one decides to change the text and send again from the serial monitor. Kindly can someone send a full code for the task. I suppose you will change and update the code from the above link. My email address is : simonnjoroge2000@yahoo.com

Raspberry Pi 24/7 Panda Cam

So I'm trying to make a birthday present for my girlfriend and something for her new apartment. She loves pandas and loves to watch the 24 hour live panda cams at the Smithsonian National Zoo. So I came across the idea of using a raspberry pi and a digital photo frame monitor to give a live feed of the pandas 24/7. Only problem is, I didn't realize Rasbian doesn't support Adobe Flash and there's no way to view the feed. Does anyone know if ARM Linux would support the feed. Or have another completely different take on a way to tackle this project? I want it pretty seamless so all see has to do it plug in the power supply and maybe an Ethernet cable and the rest be taken care of with a python script or something similar. I program for a living as well have a degree in Electrical Engineering so even if its complicated let me have it. I appreciate your help. Thanks!

Cable extension parts

I am working on a project involving a Presario V5000 laptop (well mainly its innards) and would love to find extension cables for some of the components.  For example, the keyboard attaches to the motherboard via a 24 pin flat ribbon-like cable (see example image).  It would be great if I could get a simple extension piece (male to female) to give me any additional length, but I cant seem to find anyone that makes this, or what the techincal name is for that type of cable. (is it even a cable?  Is it a flexible circuitboard?) Anyone aware of a good vendor for hard to find laptop accessories like this??

what would this stepper controller pinout mean?

I salvaged the interesting bits from two gravity fed laserprinters recently, and was delighted to find the stepper motors have small driver boards mounted to them.  Unfortunately, i dont know much about steppers or their drivers.  I'm hoping somebody with more familiarity can point me in the right direction to figuring these out. They are 13.9W 24V steppers, and manually rotating them i can feel 24 jumps, so im guessing they rotate 24 steps per revolution. The pins on the driver are LD, CW, START, GND, DC24V.  Aare those common pins for a stepper driver?

Where can I buy corrugated platic sheets (Coroplast?)

Hi. I recently was working on an art project and realized the material I desperately needed (after many others failed) was clear corrugated plastic sheeting. Apparently the main manufacturer is Coroplast. I looked around and only could find places selling large quantities. And I mean LARGE, more for structural projects than craft ones. I'm just trying to find a place where I could get a few sheet of clear 24" x 24" sheets. Does anyone out there have any suggestions?
