KeyPad & LCD Display Control Console

This is the control console for the DAV5 V3.01 Raman spectrometer, I designed it on FreeCad v0.16. I will be having this 3d printed by Sculpteo using POM material (powdered nylon type material,) color [white] for about $107.00US, as always, all my 3d parts are manufactured by Sculpteo and I have over 236 designs uploaded … Continue reading KeyPad & LCD Display Control Console


Microstepping The 28YBJ-48 Stepper Motor

Advantages of multi-grating turrets in spectrometers Phase I There are significant advantages of multi-grating turrets in spectrometers. Quite often it becomes necessary to select two or three gratings to achieve efficient light throughput over a broad spectral region. Turrets make grating changes an easy push-button or computer controlled operation, and also reduce the risk of … Continue reading Microstepping The 28YBJ-48 Stepper Motor

Communication between Arduino and Excel in Windows 10

I have Excel 2016 and Windows 10, two powerful platforms in my humble opinion, well thanks to an individual named Net^Devil over at the Arduino forums, he has a very clever program that I think perhaps has in large part solved a problem for me. I needed an alternative way of importing my CCD data directly … Continue reading Communication between Arduino and Excel in Windows 10

Stepper Motor Control With LM350 Voltage Regulator

I've been working on this concept for awhile on the side for this project, it's incorporated directly into the Czerny-Turner configuration. Most of the prototype is on a 590 pin breadboard with an LCD screen (1602-C) to display data output., motor control (using a 28BYJ-48 Stepper motor) Here is the concept below with an explanation for … Continue reading Stepper Motor Control With LM350 Voltage Regulator
