We have begun the build process. We are building a triac circuit in a PVC electrical box. If you are a prospective NEW attendee, please be aware that because of the build schedule it may be difficult to easily "get up to speed" and be successful with the current build. Please contact me (Wayne) during a Tuesday night open house or by email, if you have my email address, if you still think you want to try. Other than than, the meetup will be closed to new members until May 9.
This class will generally repeat every week as an educational outreach of Freeside Atlanta. Paying members of Freeside Atlanta may attend free. The class fee for non-members is $10 per session. Project materials may also have a cost.
Prerequisites: Prior attendance is required or approval of the instructor. We will reset the requirements and open to new attendees on May 9. We will then continue to design and build the “chain” or “stack” that will bridge the gap between a personal computer and a 110 volt 100 watt light bulb or fractional horse power electrical motor. The limitless variations and possibilities make this an extremely flexible project. Come and learn the science and the engineering that makes this such an open-ended project.
When attendance is reopened, if you have an “interface” that is not working or not working the way you expected it to work,bring your device and the documentation so we can advise you correctly. If you don’t yet have parts, kits or devices, bring your product and price research, if any.
The leader for this series is Wayne Salhany and all class sessions are conducted by Wayne. For information about Wayne, see his LinkedIn profile.
