The project files are on GitHub at: https://github.com/NineteenFire/MrAqua

Also checkout post 1319 referenced on the previous page.


The PCB files on GitHub are the Gerber files and I have yet to locate the source files....I'd like to locate them and make a few changes (e.g. using Adafruit's DS3231 breakout board instead of a DS1307).

Has anyone attempted to use NeoPixels (or others based on the WS2812)?

The source file is on the same Github than the PCB files ...
On the main directory of the Github.
What are the differences between DS1307 and DS3231.
Thanks a lot for advice
Regards
Serge

Can someone help me.
I downloaded all the files, but I couldn't figure out where to start.
You couldn't figure out how to set the nextion screen.
I have alarms, mraqua, screens, touch files, but I could not find information about where they are used.

Thanks

We will try to help you ...
Have you ever used arduino ??
If not, you are leaving far too far and you have things to study before embarking on this project.
If yes, what is it that bothers you? The main file is called "MrAqua.ino"; it's him you have to load.

IAqua has not been written for this screen at all, you have the list of materials on the Github.

As said above, Mraqua.ino is the master file of the project.
You must load it in the arduino IDE.

All the information you need is in the whole thread. Yes, 140 pages to read are a big journey
but you can't do this project IMHO without the reading of the thread.

Regards
Serge

I'm seeking the .SCH & .BRD files. The .SCH is easy to recreate...and I could import the gerber files to Eagle and use them to recreate the .BRD without completely reinventing the wheel, but having the BRD would be much easier. Also with Neopixels, I only need 1 digitial pin (doesn't require PWM)...so I could repurpose the current PWM pins for a different task. I say this with the current caveat that I have yet to compare the NeoPixels to the current ones used in this project (current draw, aesthetics, color temperature, lux, etc) other than to notice that NeoPixels do not require a heatsink. I only found this thread yesterday and have 120 more pages to read.

The DS3231 has the crystal embedded. Also, crystal oscillations change based on variations in temperature. The DS3231 also has an embedded temperature sensor that compensates for these variations. I can't remember where I read it a month or so ago (probably the Adafruit or Arduino forum), but as I recall some users report +/- 1-2mins per month with the DS1307, but only +/- a few seconds per year with the DS3231 (DS3232 offers 236bytes of battery-backed unlimited SRAM writing if desired, which can be used in lieu of EEPROM). Now that I think about it more....since the DS3231/3232 has the same package/footprint as the DS1307, I might not have to make any changes...just omit the external crystal.

I don't think the DS3231 is a drop-in replacement for the DS1307;
The DS3231 is an 16SO package, the DS1307 is an 8SO, I think?

Hello ...
All the necessary files are on the Github cited in post 2101.
Cheers
Serge

Ouupppsss .....
Big mistake from me. For the MrMan shield we do not have the .SCH and .BRD files (I confused with the O2Surplus schield ).
As for MrMan, we only have (in the "Arduino Mega Shield Schematic.PDF" file) an image of the SCH and a DU BRD.
Still sorry for this mistake.

I can't tell from the pictures and I dont have my gear yet, so i'm hoping somebody can tell; Does this unit allow you to set multiple on/off times per channel? I have an automatic feeding time twice a day, and for that I need the pump and heater to shut down (8:00 ~ 8:30, am and pm). From what I can see, there's only one on/off time per day cycle?

I will even go further about feeding: there is no plan for automatic feeding at all.
Simply the time elapsed since the last feeding is recalled, instructs the user to feed manually.
(Unless of course I missed something!). If anyone knows more about it ......

My autofeeder will be running on its own, separate from iAqua.
I just need the schedule on pump and heater to match the schedule I have in my feeder.
My autofeeder triggers 8:05am/pm, so I need iAqua to have the pump and heater off at 8:00am/pm and on at 8:30am/pm.

Ah !!! Ok, here I understand better.
By cons, a question: why turn off the heating during feeding? I only shut down filtration at that time.

My heater is built into my canister filter, and the thermometer probe is in the aquarium,
so if the heater turns on while the pump is off, it will only heat up the water in my canister.
It would keep heating because the warm water won't reach the thermometer probe.
So I hope it is possible to temporarily turn off the heater system.

Know problems thank you.

Would you happen to know if any shields are still available to purchase? as i am interested.
