Re: CME hit!

Hi Stu Google dont seem to have completed their work on the IOT chart and still appears to be a basic demo with limited input ie date from/to, number of points and Thingspeak channel number to read from. It is a better chart than Thingspeak which is fairly basic in resolution. My plan was to have a ...

Re: CME hit!

Hope the darker nights bring better views Mark. Nearly always cloud here.

It's been working well now Stu for a number of months all in all a successful experiment.

New product for magnetometer?

Hi all just found this on the site that now sells the FGM 3 sensors. Could be useful for the sport especially if you can get an output for graph use?

Not sure about power supply stability etc. Any thoughts?

Re: Arduino Magnetometer Testing

Hi all the magnetometer readings can be seen live on the following link,
https://sites.google.com/site/iotchartsdemo/thingspeak
Just type in the channel box 438056 and change the number of points to 2000.
Last night's big hit can be seen.
Cheers Carl

Re: Arduino Magnetometer Testing

IMG_20180301_131210.jpg Hi all just a quick update on the build. I have now connected the WIFI module to the Arduino Uno board they are now both talking. It took over a week of putting the codes together to get them to work but I think I have cracked it😁 The live readings are now being send to THIN...

Re: Arduino Magnetometer Testing

An excellent match, Carl. You can now very easily get Excel to remove the transient spikes and you've got yourself a nice stable magnetometer. Given the low cost, maybe you could run three at once for the X,Y & Z components ;). Stu. Thanks Stu, yes that is certainly doable. Baby steps learning code...

Re: Arduino Magnetometer Testing

Hi Stu, all, Yes Stu it appears to be. Heres the story so far. The Aurdrino board is located beside a kitchen window which is opened and closed on a regular basis due to a cat! Its also beside a kettle. If this didnt test the temperature nothing would. I have found how to load data into Excel by doi...

Re: Arduino Magnetometer Testing

Nice one, Carl. Are you also able to capture/export the data as a CSV file (frequency and time)? Stu Hi Stuart that can be done. This chart is a basic one provided by the Ardruino software instead of pumping out a list of numbers. There are various ways of doing a CSV file live which I will look at...

Re: Arduino Magnetometer Testing

IMG_20180215_175322.jpg Hi all here's the first hit of the CME on the Ardruino board. Findings so far are it dosnt appear to react to the house temperature which is good. It concurs with the magnetometer at Crooktree. The raised section in the middle is the effect of my own vehicle which can be loo...

Re: Arduino Magnetometer Testing

Interesting and where can I buy those FGM Magnetometers ? In order to understand it a bit more ...this board can measure the frequency of a pwm signal from a sensor ie the FGM 3 with a program literally a few lines long called "freqcount". So you do not read an analog Signal but a frequency and if ...

Re: Arduino Magnetometer Testing

Cool. Looking forward to seeing more from this little (and cheap) device. Temperature fluctuations are the main issue I've found with my magnetometer. I've had to go to significant lengths to protect the integrity of the signal data using close temperature control at both the sensor and the receive...

Arduino Magnetometer Testing

Hi I have been playing with Ardruino boards over the last few months. These are very cheap and very versatile. They literally can control or monitor anything. One project was a weather station which updates to the internet every 5 mins, measuring pressure, temp and humidity and all can fit into a ma...
