I'm Guillaume, a french guy that love computers, electronic, and... shrimps!
(sorry for my poor english...)
I have found this thread 2 month ago, what amazing work
While I wanted to build a similar project, I decided to try to adapt iAqua to my tank, so....
Thanks Dan Cunningham (AnotherHobby), thanks robsworld78, thanks Ryan Truss (MrAqua) and all the others contributors!
I started with the v2.5.1 of MrAqua (thanks again), this code is pretty cool!
I've made my own shield to fit my need (do you think it looks like MrAqua's one? It's normal, I was inspired by it!):
There are 6 outputs with optocouplers for the LED PWM signals
Bottom view (with the PCA9685 SMD):
A view with Arduino Mega:
First launch (dates in french (library modification) and hour in 24h format):
LED WRGB ramp (home made):
I have redraw all the icons to make the texts uniform (note the added MISC button):
For the moment, only 1 more parameter : the possibility to change the PWM frequency in the interface.
Before, PWM freq was "hard stored" in the code (120Hz) and my fish and shrimp were "blinking" on fast movements.
Now, all is visually fixed
The code is working, but I have some graphic improvements to do...
Now I have to debug 2-3 things, and add new stuff to fit perfectly my needs...
Once again, THANK YOU GUYS FOR THIS WORK !!!
