Re: IR Temperature Sensor Module for Arduino

Have tried with and without a hub, it does not seem to make a difference. Also unplugged all usb ports except the mouse. It would appear to happen when opening a new file. For instance if I have been working on a file and using COM1, if I open another file for reference purposes it appears on COM7. ...

Re: avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding

I had a similar problem and the way I got out of it was:- Update Arduino to 1.6.3 Supply the board with it's own Power supply (12v) my usb kept dropping out on overload. Make sure that for reasons unknown the the COM Port that the Arduino uses has not suddenly changed. Mine kept going from COM PORT ...

Re: IR Temperature Sensor Module for Arduino

Hi Angus, well after hours of trying I eventually got it working. To get this result I had to download the latest Arduino 1.6.3. I was using 1.6.1. Then the IRTemp files which took ages to even load as the installation instructions which seemed clear but the zip files didn't play the game and loaded...

Re: IR Temperature Sensor Module for Arduino

I am hoping to use this sensor at a very close range, like 5mm. Is there any limitations on that? or anything I should be aware of? Also the connections don't seem to be very clear! The info sheet says:- Data to D2 Clock to D3 Acquire to D4 As the Data output is from the sensor I would have thought ...
