Re: Dc voltmeter 0-55v

Hi Derrihj, Looks like a nice project, looking at the title of your flowcode project name. "Battery Charge Cut Out" Are you cutting off the DC charge current ? or using to offer "deep Discharge protection" of your batteries ? I must admit that i have not opened your project to lo...

Re: PCB layout and schematic software

Just had a look,

Looks like freecad can import eagle .brd files but the freecad forums have mixed reviews about importing eagle .brd files and the success rate
might have a go later when I have more time.

Re: Possable PWM Issue ?

Hi Leigh, Had a quick play at the weekend, didn't have much time. Still not working yet Did notice that PWM2 is mappable between 2 pins how do you change this ? in control the panel Do you have to use the "APFCON Register code" . do I just use a c code icon before the PWM enable ? Steve

Re: ACS712 component doing wrong

Hi Tadz When using AC these type of sensors will output a AC Waveform one option is by using a "precision rectifier" and a small capacitor to convert this to DC then the standard ADC component can read the value https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Precision_rectifier Hope this helps Steve

Re: Bad mistake in FC8!

Hi
This may be unrelated - have you just installed the latest build 1903 ? of windows 10
at work this has also broken Autodesk Inventor 2018 & Autocad 2018. We have rolled back to the previous build

So might not be a bug in FC8 - MS could have caused this
