I'm quite interested in this device because it hits almost every mark I had set out (web access would be nice).

Apologies for not digging through this 139 page thread for this, but; Has anyone made a follow-along instruction for making one of these yet?
The parts are easy enough to find, but the opening post seems to be missing the wiring diagrams, so im stuck.

You can see the post #1319 of this thread.
The Github https://github.com/NineteenFire/MrAqua
may also be useful.

Is there a place that sells a shield for this? I've read about it but it doesn't seem to be something you can just buy? You have to commission it somewhere?

Hello ...
We are on a DIY forum and I do not think that the sale of complete kits is tolerated. However, most of those who had ordered PCBs in China faced a minimum order of 5 copies or maybe 10 in some companies.
Maybe to see with these people. (I myself had ordered the O2surplus shield PCB and ordered 5 copies (not yet received).
You can also see here :
http://https://www.plantedtank.net/f...-v2-iaqua.html
and also see post #710 for the shield of O2surplus.
Hoping that it answers the question asked.
Best regards
Serge

Shield or no shield, its still DIY, so I think we're fine. :P
At Least I assume its ok to help each other source the parts to make something.
It seems that thread has gone 'cold' but ill try contacting him directly.
Shipping will probably cost an arm and a leg for me.
Thanks for helping though!

Hello
Efectively, this is no longer the excitement of the beginnings ....
But we still get help.
I do not understand who you want to contact directly.
If it is O2surplus, I suggest you avoid, he died last year.
We have his job left.
If I can help you, it will be with pleasure.
cordially
Serge

Hmm, you mean people are no longer interested in this project?
Is there a successor/alternative that's even better than this?

I wanted to contact people who had shields made,
to see if they still had one laying around.
Sad to hear O2surplus has passed away though.

I just want to get a shield so I won't have to deal with PCB making,
breadboarding it with standard sized components will probably make it huge,
and I dont have my PCB UV screening tools anymore.

This is normal, the creators of the project and those who followed them at the beginning have their controller built and working and are less interested in this thread today.
It must be remembered that this adventure is already over 5 years old.

I don't know any if exists

I've ordered mine some days ago an I have ordered 5.
So I''ll have some spare units if you can wait.

Maybe you can just port over the Reef pi shields (not sure exactly what you are looking for btw)

Hello ....

My goal is exactly what the shield of O2surplus and the software of AnotherHobby do.
The stuff you pointed on is probably good but is American stuff and for us in Europe, the postal fee to order American goodies is very very expensive sometimes 30$00 to ship a product witch price is 5$00 or so .... A pity

Thank you anyway for the info
Regards
Serge

I'm with Serge on that one; many good american products are stuck behind an insane shippingcost wall.
I tried getting something the size of a thumb out of america last month, 32 dollars to ship a 2 ounce package!
Yikes.

So were stuck with arduino, some chinese parts, and doing some handywork.

I hope this thread is not completely abandoned and somebody can still help me. :')

Can I use this thing to power some 24v lights while controlling them through the arduino?

Also, is there some documentation about the dosing pump headers?
Do they power the pumps directly or do you put a relay switch on them?

PCB O2surplus

Hello Sven ...

Good news: PCBs arrived at my home this morning.
Impeccable work.

Cheers

Good to hear! I will message you for the details.

As for the amplifier, Ive contacted a few vendors about it, they all say it can take a 5v PWM signal on the input.
So ive ordered one and will try it out to see if it works; If it does, yay, 3 dollar LED driver!
If it doesn't, I already have a backup plan that only takes a MOSFET and a resistor per channel;



R3 is a 220ohm resistor which is already on the iAqua shield.
The whole segment above the MOSFET is built into the LED strip itself.
This way is a little larger and more expensive and you have to make it yourself, but it works.
We'll see if its necessary soon.
