Re: Using LeoStick to drive Solid State Switch

I am using it to drive an AC fan (240V 80W induction motor with run capacitor). I have been using a Light dimmer (600W rating) to manually control it's speed, but would like to remove the manual intervention. I have a solid state switch which will take a DC signal and use it to turn on AC current. T...

Using LeoStick to drive Solid State Switch

I would like to use the LeoStick with an output connected to a Solid State Switch as a motor speed control, with speed increased or decreased, dependent on measured temperature. I plan to use a thermocouple as the sensor.
Has anyone done this and uploaded the sketch to share?

Now to start learning how to drive it.

Regards.

Re: Windows 8.1 does not recognise FreetronicsUSBDrivers_v2_2

Thanks for the advice. You have Nailed the issue. There are two possible ways to recover from this: - Check the board type in the Arduino IDE under Tools->Board is "LeoStick V2.0". Open the Blink example sketch (or any other sketch). Press "Verify" to compile it. Then get ready to press the "Upload"...

Re: Windows 8.1 does not recognise FreetronicsUSBDrivers_v2_2

I download the driver zip file, open the zip file and extract to the default folder in the downloads directory. It has 2 files : FreetronicsUSB.cat and FreetronicsUSB_v2_2.inf. I connect the Leostick and open device manager. The Leostick shows with an x against it. I right click and click on install...

Windows 8.1 does not recognise FreetronicsUSBDrivers_v2_2

I loaded the Leostick USB drivers as per the guide and loaded the "blink" sketch. It worked as expected. I then tried to change the sketch and load it to the Leostick, but the "Port" was not available (greyed out). I checked Control Panel/Devices, Other and the Leostick hasd an X next to it. I click...
