Hi!

I'm thinking in add a new feature to Ferduino code but, I would like to know how many people have interest on this feature.

It should be like this:

Watch on youtube.com


If you are using Ferduino and Zeovit, please show us some pictures of your system.

Best regards.

hello fernando
I made a zeolite reactor very similar to what's in the video but I have not installed any engine because being inexperienced in electronics do not know what kind of engine mount. I thought to a stepper motor combined with a flexible coupling in order not to straining too much the engine to the gearbox of rotation.

what do you think about it??
You have no idea of how to properly size an engine ??

ps.

I have not yet learned to pstare photos on the forum :( :( :( :( :(

Hi!

I'm thinking to use an I2C motor driver with a NEMA 17 or 23 stepper motor.

The motor size depends of the quantity of zeolites.

Here have a tutorial to post images: viewtopic.php?f=27&t=173

Best regards.

I will be implementing similar by an arduino uno via serial2 pins 18/19 or i2c, most likely uno in i2c slave mode.
The uno will control 3d printed heads on nema17 stepper motors.

How about just general I2C stepper control, as this can be used multiple ways, such as protein skimmer cleaner, fish feeder, stirrer of all types.

I was going to do all this by connecting an arduino via serial bytes on pins 18/19 or over i2c on pins 20/21, or donating the pins used for PCF8575 and sending pulses and converting them to step counts within the uno.

Numerous ways to do it, you need to decide how to make the interface B-)

I do not think you should concentrate on zeolite alone, instead, general stepper control. Everything will be "which motor" "what time" and "how many rotations" in all instances, so better just to go strait to stepper control, instead of zeolite specific..

People will just change zeolite to something else! =))

i2c stepper motor drivers look very nice, I did not know of them until I read this post!

Peace.

Hi!

You are absolutely right.

I was thinking about skimmer cleaner when I found this topic some days ago.

Is not needed use an Arduino uno as slave. On I2C bus you can connect many devices since that addresses are different.
