Re: 5v Power supply

Thanks for that Andrew.
I shall be using a 9 volt battery to power the Arduino.
The 5 volts is for the stepper motor and the 10 turn Pertentiometer
Thanks again.
Regards Dave.

5v Power supply

Hi,
I have a 5 volt 1 amp power supply which I'd like to use with my Arduino Leonardo board.
I've tested this power supply with my digital meter and it's showing a rock steady 5.1 volt
Would this extra 0.1 volt do my board any damage or should I be able to get away with it?
Thanks.
Regards Dave.

Re: Which Display unit?

One more thing,
How do I get it to print 7.175 instead of 7.17?
I need it to show 3 decimal places 0.000
any ideas?
Regards Dave.

Re: Which Display unit?

Problem solved.

I've just changed the code a bit.

// print to LCD
lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
lcd.print("Kenwood TS-590S");
lcd.setCursor(4, 1);
lcd.print(MHz),lcd.print(" MHz");

Regards Dave.

I have 1 to 5 volts coming in to the Arduino Leonardo analog pin 1 The code then out puts the Volts to the display as MHz. All ...

Re: Waterproof Project Box (HCCASE0004)

Are these dimensions: 80(width) x 130(Length) x 70(High)?
It's just the 80, 70 I'm unclear about.

Re: Which Display unit?

Thank you for your helpful reply. I've just ordered the 1602 from your online shop. I'll have a good look at it when it arrives and see how it goes. Just a heads up.... I'm 56, grey and have grand kids so may seem a little slow to catch on. I've never coded in my life so please bear with me (not lit...
