My UPS is designed to run on 36v Dc input. Can i be able to use a single 12v battery for it to run? if not is there a way i can adjust the input power to 12V?

Does anyone else seem to think that a lot of the entries here are not technically mash-ups. I entered one that, the more I think about, isn't really a mash-up. Sure I combined a couple of things to make something new, but unless you consider turning two decorative things into a third decorative thing a "mash-up", I'm not entirely sure it fits this contest. I'm working on something that I think will be more appropriate, but I'm curious what everyone else thinks.

Hi Guys, My first time to post a question here. I had purchase a UPS from a store. The UPS have 2 6 volts battery inside of it, the seller said that 1 of those battery isn't working anymore. My question is this, how do I replace or is it possible to replace it with 1 12 volts battery instead of having 2 6 volts battery to fit there. What will be the layout of the wirings if I have to do it on 1 12 volts battery. I tried making search of the actual item on the net but couldn't find it. Here's the pictures and the information of the UPS Information -------------------------------------------- 2009000002391 MODEL: ELITE 500 VOLTAGE: 220V / 60Hz MADE IN TAIWAN --------------------------------------------

I am wanting to build an Uninterrupted power supply. I was planning to use relays to connect and disconnect and the mains and battery power. N/O for the mains and N/C for the DC voltage. I wasn't sure if the relays would switch fast enough for the CPU to remain on. I loaded 2 pictures. Has anybody ever built something like this?

Contrary to popular belief, I havent left instructables, and I havent died. I have however been working on bunches of projects (some of which you may remember from my "Things I'm Going to Post Soon" slideshow). Unfortunately, most projects, such as a crossbow, slide-action pistol, semi-auto sniper, etc., have miserably failed. And even worse, several projects (FAMAS, M6G, and the D.R.A.G.O.N) have been demolished for lack of pieces, and will need to be rebuilt. The first project to be posted will be my M6G Magnum (halo 1 pistol), which should be up by the end of the week, followed by my completely new Sniper, the KSR (at least until I find a better name), which I have made since, according to previous feedback, my R700 simply wasnt cutting the jib. It features an extremely comfortable handle, an upgraded trigger system, and better overall statistics (range and accuracy). After that is posted, I might be able to rebuild the FAMAS, or the DRAGON, but dont get your hopes up, they are hard to remake, so I'll probably just make a new gun, such as the Shipka SMG. Stats: M6G Magnum •Range: ~ 20-30 ft. •Accuracy: Consistent •Mag: Loads 9 pcs. KSR •Range: ~65-70 ft. (depending on bands) •Accuracy: Very Consistent •Mag: Single shot / rail system FAMAS •Range: ~30-40 ft. •Accuracy: Good consistency •Mag: Loads 12 pcs. D.R.A.G.O.N •Range: ~50-80 ft. (depending on ammo type) •Accuracy: Medium consistency •Mag: Single shot / dual rail system PS - Constructive critisism is welcome, but dont just say: "wow _____ gun sucks" The pictures are as follows: 1. M6G Magnum (w/ comparison) 2. KSR 3. FAMAS (w/ comparison) 4. D.R.A.G.O.N

Nowadays many sites do this very horrible thing that is really annoying to the point I just want to throw my monitor out the window or beat the crap out of my monitor with my keyboard over and over. When you go to a site, like this one, you are reading the article, instructable, watching a video (or whatever), and few seconds to 2 mins later, the screen dims and a pop-up comes out saying "do you want to sign up?" Other sites might say "do you want to subscribe?" "Click "like" if you like this article" This is one of those things that's really fking annoying. If people want to sign up, they can click on it in the top right corner. The sheer amount of sites that do this, that forces you to read their pop-up, making you close it everytime. The only thing I am interested in is the instructable/artcle I was currently reading... This site would be decent if you removed it.

I've got loads of LEDs and resistors from eBay and using the resistors, only up to 4 LEDs in serial will light. I can't just use more resistors, as I broke open a mains lighting bulb that uses 20 LEDs to provide lighting. Looking at the printed circuit, they are all soldered in series. If I put + at one side of an LED and - at the other with these resistors I have, it lights, two three and 4 work, but on the 5th, it drops dim, after that it won't light at all. Do I need a different resistor, of is something else wrong. Could someone kindly tell my what resistor I need for 20 5mm White LEDs running off 18v (two 9V batteries), and 9v (one)? Thanks! Josh.

Recently whenever I comment on a question the page "scrolls" down like I have commented, but no text shows up. Sometimes this happens with my version of Chrome (15.0.874.121 on Mac osX lion), but a page refresh usually shows the comment. I checked again once and about 4 hours later, but nothing shows up...

Haterz. Stupid, stupid, haterz. What is up with them? I mean, lets take a random example, a few days ago I posted the TR18 (with KILLERK's permission) and it rose up to 4.02* within a few days. Now I checked that a few hours ago, and it was still as 4.02*, and then about 10 mins later, it had gone straight down to 3.85* because some stupid hater gave it 0.5* for no reason whatsoever! Anyway, I just decided that I would share that with you, thanks!

A bunch of broken furniture and enough epoxy, and you've got Thomas Wold's Piecemeal.Commissioned to design a "green" coffee table for Good Hotel in San Francisco (the "first hotel with a conscience"), Wold scavenged used bits and pieces to create his piece.

Would it be possible to assemble a circuit using a piezo sensor and a string of LEDs so that a snare lights up when hit? My knowledge of stuff like this is extremely limited (read: non-existent) so any help would be appreciated! Also, if my idea is useless, it'd be great if other ways of doing this were discussed. Thanks!

Hey I have a litte problem! (sorta, not yet!) So, I have one of those wall adapter things, and it says it outputs 12vDC and 1 amp. Out of curiosity, i hooked up my volt meter to it and the output was a whoppin 20 volts! Why was it 20 instead of 12 like the transformer said? This is making me worry about my other ones!

Last night (May 23, 2012) between 9:00 PM and 11:45 PM Eastern time i posted 2 new instructables. One of which has been featured. Problem is they are not showing up on the technology page or the Electronics sub page. There have been several instructables posted today that are showing up on the page. They have even been accepted into a challenge or 2. I also posted an instructable back on May 15 2012 and it is missing as well. Since this one has been missing for so long i sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org asking about the issue. The email was sent 2 or 3 days ago and i haven't heard back (other then the auto reply that is sent). All 3 show up on my profile and show up on the Challenge and contest pages they have been entered in. They just don't show up in the Technology page like then should or the sub category they should be listed under. What do i need to do to get this fixed? Here are links to the instructables affected.

Does anyone know a super simple game console hook-up? I don't really know much about circuit boards, and electronics, but I'd like to learn. What I mean by simple is: a power supply plug for it, AV cable plugin, an on/off switch, controller ports, and game cartridge port. To be specific, I'd like to be able to build a smaller, simpler version of a Sega Genesis, or N64, or whatever. --- Thanks!!

As you all know, I manage the Nominating Instructables to be Featured Group. I've looked at so many instructables and the people who written them. There are so many instructables that are great and many new authors who write them. So I decided that on top of nominating instructables, starting today members can start nominating their new favorite new author and I will post nominations as part of the group. Start searching!

Hello instructables, I am a student at High Tech High North County and we are working with arduinos in our Engineering class. Our project is to create a reverse sensor for a motor vehicle, we are having trouble finding a way to set up the sensor with the arduino. The sensor we are using is HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Ping range sensor. If you have any idea on how to do this, please reply. Thanks.

I recently acquired a very large 12V SLA battery and want to make a UPS for my computer. I think I have the basic idea, but I'm not entirely sure how I would go about this. I'm guessing I could use a relay to switch from the mains to battery, but then I would need a very large capacitor to run the equipment for a few milliseconds whilst it switches. I would need a separate transformer and regulator for the relay, and also an inverter for the battery, which I will probably buy as it looks like it would be too hard to make. Is this the right approach to it?

I had installed Ubuntu as a program that I can run within windows, just to try it out. Turns out it didn't quite fit my needs. When my computer boots up, it gave me the option to boot from windows or Ubuntu. Well, since I no longer want Ubuntu, I uninstalled it following the directions given by their website. I still have the option to boot Ubuntu when my computer starts up, but when I select it, It won't boot. I want Ubuntu out of my options to boot from. Anybody know how I would remove it from the list?

Hi , new to instructables and have been looking at some posts and am now confused. Im in the process of seting up a led lighting board, I am using 20 blue high power 1W led's 350mw each. My plan is to run them from a computer power supply, but am unsure of the safest way to hook them up, parallel with a resistor for each or so on, I am basic when it comes to electronics and components, i can read a basic diagram. Also some parts listed in high power led driver on this site are parts numbers that are not available in Australia, i know i need to regulate voltage and current at 3.5v and 350ma but don't know what parts to use, i used led calculator and was told to use a 1watt 5.6ohm resistor in parallel. Please help

I just spent 4 hours writing up a really kick butt guide using the new editor. I went to publish. Published it. I had something like 15 steps written out, and then I had three. Just three. The rest were gone. No idea why or how. What happened is that I started writing in the "old" editor, but stopped three steps in before switching to the new editor. Seems as if the system didn't like that. Oh well. Looks like I wasted four hours of my time.
