Interfacing a Relay with PIC Microcontroller – MikroC

A relay is an electromagnetic switch which is used to switch High Voltage/Current using Low power circuits. Relays isolate as well low power circuits from high power circuits, this is a good feature especially for safety reasons a section of the circuit with high dangerous voltage/current could be isolated from the user. When a low voltage is applied to the relay (coil wounded on a soft iron core), this coil becomes a magnet which in turns energizes the soft...

Getting Started with Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi is a small credit card sized computer, It is very cheap compared to the traditional computers, the Raspberry Pi Foundation has arrangements with a few manufacturers from whom you can buy a Pi directly at $25 - $35. The Raspberry Pi unlike the traditional computer, it has the ability to integrate with electronics projects. Raspberry Pi to control devices that a microcontroller can control like LEDs, relays, LCDs etc. A Raspberry Pi is better used where more processing...

Arduino Shield Tutorial – Make Your Own Relay Shield

Arduino shields are boards that can be plugged on top of the Arduino PCB to extend its capabilities. This makes prototyping with Arduino plug and play. Instead of soldering or wiring external devices or sensors, you can simply hook your board with a shield. This speeds up development time even for absolute beginners. This is a practical tutorial, we're gonna build a fully working complete Arduino Relay shield, we're gonna go through all the steps

Getting Started with ESP8266 WiFi Transceiver

The ESP8266 is a wonder WiFi module that can literally give any microcontroller access to WiFi network and thus enabling countless Internet of Things (IoT) and Home Automation applications at a fraction of cost compared to the alternative options. It's easy to use, it's popular, it has stormed the world of makers in recent years since 2014, you can now build your own cool electronic application that communicates to the internet and can be accessed from anywhere in the world

Ethernet UDP-Based Control and Monitoring with PIC Microcontroller – MikroC

Ethernet is the leading wired standard for networking as it enables to connect a very large number of computers, microcontrollers and other computer-based equipment to one another. In this project we are going to learn how to control any device connected to a PIC Microcontroller from a remote location using a customized computer Graphical User Interface (GUI) software designed with C#. A number of client computers from different locations can be used to control the field devices from anywhere. With the...

Web-Based Control and Monitoring with PIC Microcontroller – MikroC

Ethernet is the leading wired standard for networking as it enables to connect a very large number of computers, microcontrollers and other computer-based equipment to one another. In this project we are going to learn how to control any device like an LED, a relay, a light bulb, a motor and so on connected to a PIC Microcontroller from a remote location using just a web browser. An operator can use a computer, tablet or even a cellphone to control...

Share Serial Port Devices Over Ethernet with Eltima Serial to Ethernet Connector

Serial to Ethernet Connector allows sharing of numerous RS232/RS422/RS485 serial interface devices over network, be it Ethernet LAN or Internet. You can turn your PC into a server with multiple clients which can be locally or at remote location, they can all access a device connected to the server PC's COM Port as if they were connected directly. In this project a remote client over TCP/IP will display graphically temperature read from a serial COM Port device connected to server.

SMS Controlled Relay with PIC Microcontroller- MikroC

In this project we are going to learn how  to control a relay connected to a PIC microcontroller with an SMS using mikroC compiler. This relay could be used in many applications to Switch ON or OFF devices such as an electric bulb, or opening a security boom gate like in this example. A security access control can be implemented at apartments or housing complexes, when a visitor arrives at the gate, he/she can phone the visited person who...
