I'm waiting for some 1GB SD cards to arrive in the mail, but that's the least of my problems. I ordered the Sainsmart Mega with the Touch screen and shield, but it turns out that it's not compatible...

I ran into that too! Take the entire iAqua file after unzipping it and toss it into your Arduino sketch folder. The Arduino IDE will then recognize the font files and load them into tabs behind the...

Spent some time this weekend working on a custom shield for the iAqua Controller. It's no where near completed yet, as I still have quite a few components to add and traces to connect. Making the 40...

Hey AH-

When you have the time can you describe any prerequisites required to loading the image files to the SD card. I've managed to load the main iAqua sketch to the Mega and it boots up showing...

You're the man! Posting those libraries just made my day! Thank you!

Edit: I tried to compile the sketch and got an error. It looks like the tinyFAT.h library was left out and need to be included.

LOL- There's no way you need that much power. My 225 measures 72"L X 30"W X 24"T and I get crazy PAR and even coverage at the substrate with less than 300 watts. You could get similar results with...

I've never noticed an "X-ray effect" with my lighting system, but I do have a black back on my tank, so that may be why? I don't think you'll need more than 1 length of heat sink over your tank. Two...

Is the Makers heat sink available in Sweden? They're available here in various lengths, so ordering one in a 60" length could be an option. They normally come equipped with 1 fan for every foot, so...

Would it be feasible to put some TIMER ONE code in your software to create a 10 bit PWM signal? Then you'd have 1024 steps of resolution instead of 255?

LOL- as soon as I have some spare time, I'm gonna design a custom PcB for this project, and build one of these for myself. Thanks for all the hard work you put into this project.

What are the dimensions of your PcB? If it's 10cm x10cm or smaller you can get 10 of them from Seeedstudio or Iteadstudio for about $25 plus shipping. That's only $2.50 per board.

LOL- 29's would have been complete overkill. So you're only pushing 1000ma into the 5600K's? Is that with LDD-1000H's or are you simply PWMing the heck out of the 1600ma drivers that I sent you?;)

LOL- I'd been thinking that I'd screwed up by purchasing the 5000K 70CRI Vero 18's. Now with what you're saying- I got it right? I guess I'll hold off on those 90 CRI 5600K units for now.:wink:
