Hi,

The circuit boards arrived a while ago,
but was full time on the mill improvements...

Back to the switch motor project itself,
everything looks good.

Steve

Hi Steve  :wave:


It looks like you are doing really well.  :thumb:

Your awesome CAD work is producing some nice lil' prototypes !  :)


I just came across the i2S bus, for connecting up a small OLED screen.  L:

I need to fit a new floppy-emulator to the vintage 1980s Christmas present I got !  :shocked:


Things have moved on from vacuum-tubes a lot these days !  ;)
I'm a lookin' & I'm a learnin'.  :old dude:



:moose: :moose: :moose: :moose: :moose:



Si.

Si,
Do you mean I2C bus?  That's the typical bus used for OLED displays.
Never have come across an OLED device with an I2S bus.

  Hi, I made a series of switch motor boxes, each with a different style of hole for weather testing:
  • 1: box without any additional holes.
  • 2: box with the "throw lever" switch installed.
  • 3: box with 0/039" hole and 0.039" rod.
  • 4: box with 0.039" rod running thru 1mm ID silicone sleeve.
  • 5: box with 0.039" rod running thru pair of 1mm ID silicone o-rings.
I placed a cobalt chloride moisture and humidity detection test paper inside each box.
The boxes have clear lids so I will be able to monitor them for leaks without opening.
The boxes are positioned on the trestle with the holes facing the wind/snow:

02-17-2020: 4" snow storm last night, all boxes dry inside:2t:

I took a chance and placed a "medium run" order for 40 of the PCBs.
