Arduino 3.2 tft colour touch screen build
« on: November 27, 2011, 10:38:44 PM »
This was my second Arduino reef build controller , Uses the bigger atmega1280 board and a 3.2" tft colour touch screen

Please note that iteadstudio lcd is now using the ssd1289 controller and the sketch will need some modifying before it will work or you will just get a white screen
The parts

Arduino reef build controller

Assembly is very easy just push together







Instructions are included in pdf file and the sketches are available in the link below

Arduino reef build controller

This is the modified Stilo sketch which is also uploaded on here called Jarduino Code

With this code you can have 6 leds and a moon phase running

The only difference is the front screen at this time






You still need all the sketches and folders from the stilo but need to add the one attached

A huge thank you to TheDOdblG for the code, the code is not to be permitted to make any money off or to be commercialized

Hi there,

I have just finished my DIY LED build and was going to use a pre made Typhon controller. It has 4 channels 2 white and 2 blue which I want to control seperatly. I have used the meanwell eln 60 48ps which use 10v PWM.

This looks much nicer but I know nothing about Arduino coding, I cant seem to find the links to the coding in your post.

I have just tried the links in Saltys Arduinos for dummies and they seem dead??

Any help would be great.
Lee

A warm welcome to you, the main code the first one you need is the stilo code that will gove you a simple 2 led sketch here http://code.google.com/p/stilo

for the sketch i have used above you will need to ask TheDOdblG for the code nicely

Look forward to seeing some pics

regards

Happy new year Kev!

Thanks for the reply, I had a PM with Saltydog but he was under the impression that you could only get two channels to store in the EEPROM if there was a power failure??

I will have to fire a PM to TheDOdblG and see what he says. How are you finding the controller? Easy to use and navigate? My build is logged on another forum I'm assuming is not the done thing to post links to it so I will transfer it over for you guys to see. (Just realised you use photobucket on here so it may take some time!)

Lee.

You can also link from facebook and the site has it own picture uploader, share the build with us got a feeling yours will be done before mine lol

with the arduino code you can manually put the lighting times in by the pc when uploading the sketch but then can only change the whites and blue channels on the arduino, in the event of a powe rcut the rtc chip should still work of its back up battery so all light times should still be stored on the controller

The lads done a great job with the other build hes a wizz with arduinos

Could one of these arduino mega builds monitor (and control) ORP and Ph probes.

Good question what monitoring capabilities does this have?

if it can do:

ORP (as an ozone controller)
Density
pH
temp
and control lighting

i would build one myself

I finally have all the boards, after a silly mistake on ordering the wrong ITDB02 shield  :-[

I've downloaded the latest arduino v1.0 for windows, running it on a windows 7 64bit
I've downloaded jarduino from this thread.
I've downloaded the library files for the touch screen, and copied them into the libraries folder under the arduino files.
I downloaded the stilo code and copied the libraries over too.

When verifying the jarduino sketch , I get:

C:\Arduino\arduino-1.0\libraries\ITDB02_Graph16/ITDB02_Graph16.h:76:22: error: WProgram.h: No such file or directory
C:\Arduino\arduino-1.0\libraries\DS1307/DS1307.h:12:24: error: WConstants.h: No such file or directory

I've checked and neither of these files exist at the identified locations.

There are a bundle more errors but they are also related to the screen, so i'm hoping on resolution of this initial query, it may just solve a shed load more of the errors.

I've done a wee bit of googling, and it advises to change some of the coding, but I thought I would be better checking here first to get the experienced advice  :whoo:

This is my first foray into arduino, so I would appreciate the assistance.
