The Outlet Nanny

The Outlet Nanny

We designed a power monitor that could communicate with the PIC32 through UART to give both power and current readings for any device(s) (that use NEMA plugs) plugged into our box. These readings are then accessible on a website interface, on a graph. We chose to do this project because of the growing issue of …

Standard morphology of a cardiac electrical cycle

Single-Supply Portable ECG Monitor

Introduction The aim of this project was to produce a portable ECG monitor that displays the ECG signal of an Einthoven triangle configuration of electrodes (3 leads). The motivation of this project comes from the pervasiveness of cardiac problems in the world, which cause the highest number of death, as well as the relatively uncommon …

A simple display

A simple display that uses the POV to display messages in the air using PIC12F629 microcontroller

A simple rotating display. Just spin and enjoy. While the “Air display” is rotating, it writes the message on the air. Because the “persistence of the vision”, you will be able to read the message. Here is the circuit: Download the HEX file HEREProgram the PIC with this HEX file. (Use right-click and “Save as”) …

Quick Key Adapter, 10 Button HID Keyboard using PIC18F14K50

Quick Key Adapter, 10 Button HID Keyboard This Instructable covers creating a USB connected Human Interface Device Keyboard that has 10 button inputs which are mapped to key combinations in the firmware. Key combinations can be quickly accessed without using the keyboard which may be inconvenient to use. Such as with a MAME or similar machine where the keyboard may be stored or inaccessible or certain …
