  1. Thanks for your replies. This project got put on hold for a little while but I'm back onto it. I had a look at the USB plugs. They look quite interesting but not quite suited to my needs. I'll post exact specs and more information about what I'm doing later tonight. I've got some ATMega8515 chips spare that I was going to use and I'm looking into some relays that can handle a lot of power. I'll also get an rs232 interface going to the MCU for feedback and control to/from a computer. Any information I collect for this project I'll post here. :) Cheers again, KG
  2. Hi everyone, I fancy messing around with some microcontroller stuff and I've always fancied being able to build a system where I can switch plug sockets on/off. I was thinking of using an Atmega to accomplish this. I believe I would have to use some relays to switch on/off a 240v AC source? Can anyone point me in the right direction to information which could help me with this? If this was about switching a 5v DC source I'd quite happily get my teeth right in there but with this working with 240v I would be happier knowing I'm doing this safely. Any hints/tips/advice you can give will be greatly appreciated. :) Thanks in advance. KG
  3. Thanks for your reply. :) I've just checked the bike and it uses a 12v battery. Although since my last post we've decided to sell the cbr and use a kawasaki ninja 900 as the test subject instead. It also uses a 12v batt. :) Cheers again
  4. Hi guys. I've been given access to a fully functional Honda CBR 600 motorcyle to mess around with the electronics (just for the record, I'm allowed to break the bike :) ). While looking through the projects here I found this one in the 'Automotive' section. http://www.electronics-lab.com/projects/automotive/008/index.html My question is...Would this work on the above named motorbike? If not, does anyone know of circuit that would perform the same function? Thanks in advance peeps :)
  5. You want to use germicidal bulbs (UVC). You can get them quite easily. Don't buy them from somewhere that is selling them specifically for eprom eraser units, they tend to charge alot more for them. Best getting them from a pet shop (used in aquariums).
  6. I've just done some reading. I believe it could be the same service manual as the Sun GDM-17E10 monitor. Just incase someone has that ;)
  7. hi all, I'm trying to find a service manual for an SGI 17E11 monitor. Its just the Sony model rebadged for SGI. Or if anyone can help me out with reading the diagnostics LEDs that would be great too. Thanks
  8. Have a look at http://www.lirc.org/receivers.html for building an IR receiver and http://www.lirc.org/transmitters.html for building an IR transmitter. Both the receiver and transmitter are erally simple devices which can easily be built into the same device. That will give you your physical device for RX and TX but you will still need to set up your computers bios for IR on com2. Normally you'll find the IR setting in the peripherals section of you bios. I've built the Lirc Receiver/transmitter and it works great. Have fun.
  9. Hi, As far as I can see, the terminator is just a 330 Ohm resistor. Sorry I cant tell you what pins the resistor needs to be on, I'm checking this from an SCA adapter I have here. All of my drives are SCA80 so I need to use adaptors. Remember most new scsi controllers support auto termination, check in your scsi bios config for an auto setting. If you drive isnt appering, see if your controller is set to SE (single ended) or if there are other SE devices on the same line, SE and LVD devices shouldnt be attached to the same scsi bus.
