What is Gizduino?

Gizduino is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328 and ATmega168. It has 14 digital input/ouput pins, 6 analog inputs. With a 16 Mhz crystal oscillator, USB connector, power jack for external power supply, an ICSP, and a reset button. Simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable to power it with to a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to use it.

It is an open source computing platform based on simple input/output board and the use of standard programming language. Gizduino is programmed using the IDE (Integrated Development Environment).

It is ideal for beginner programmers and hobbyist because it is very easy to use wherein it is a multi platform environment that can run on Windows, MAC OS, and Linux. It is programmable via USB cable to make it more accessible and allows communicating with the computer.

Based on the datasheet: https://www.e-gizmo.net/oc/kits%20documents/ACS71x%20Current%20sensor%20breakoutboard/ACS711-Datasheet.pdf It is optimized for low-side current sensing application and it depends on the current capacity of the ACS IC. The ACS711 - 05B can handle up to 5A current load. Therefore, it can be use in AC or DC working voltage application but in <100V , not 110~240VAC power source. (Caution: At your own risk) We suggest AC Power Analyzer II were it is recommended for high current sensing up to 8A continuous.

How to Calibrate the Coinslot for ₱1, ₱5, ₱10?

Here's the slide switch connections (Default) MGN/NOM/• MAX (selected) • NO (selected)/NC Fast/• Medium (selected)/Slow 1. Power ON the coin slot (Input Supply 12VDC) 2. Press and Hold (2 secs) the SET button, and the 3 LED will blink. 3. Press and hold (2secs) the SET button, and the LED 1 will slowly blinking. 4. Put first the "1 peso coin" (20 x times) [ make sure the coin drops at the back of the coin slot] until the LED 1 will HIGH and the LED 2 is blinking fast. (Note: If you already pressed the button once, then you drop the coin and Nothing happens.. Try it again by pressing and holding the button then drop again the coin. It must be drop at the bottom not on the eject coins) 5. The Press and Hold again the SET button (2 secs). The LED 1 is HIGH and the LED 2 is slowly blinking. Now put the " 5 peso coin" (20x times) until the LED 1 and 2 is HIGH and the LED 3 is blinking fast. 6. Lastly, Press and Hold the SET button (2secs). The LED 1 and 2 is HIGH, the LED 3 is blinking slowly. Then put the "10 peso" coin.(20x times) until the LED 1, LED 2, and LED 3 is HIGH. after that you will see the 3 LEDs will turn off. Because the calibration is done well. You can now use the coin slot. Put the 1 (led1), 5(led2), 10 peso(led3).

Last update: 2018-04-21 04:59


Is this compatible in Arduino/gizDuino?

Yes, but you need to consider first what are the required power supply and other components for SIM800L module. (See the Datasheet) SIM800L module's input power supply is 4.0V (3.4 ~ 4.4V) to make it work properly, also the serial logic communication of SIM800L is 3.3V output. Then we all know that Arduino/gizDuino is 5V powered and the serial pins output is 5V logic. Their serial communication is not compatible, so what we gonna do for that? You need a Voltage Translator. Which it can converts the voltage from HIGH toLOW or vice versa. Multi-voltage level converter: http://www.e-gizmo.net/oc/index.php?route=product/product&path=59_66_103&product_id=16
