Not bad for a programmer. Ours usually vent by intentionally sending bad code to things. I’m sure he had to have a mechy give him a spark though.
Now I’m no electronics or programming person, but I’m pretty sure that’s not how that’s supposed to be used.
I would guess all that was required to fix that board was a 5v regulator replacement, because whoever designed this board neglected a simple diode to protect against reverse polarity.
They also neglected to make it fireproof, apparently.
Uhm… I do software, occasionally drive, and machine/manufacture parts for the robot…
If you want sparks… triggers plasma torch :yikes:
I’m noticing a pattern with the use of these IR boards:p
***very nice! i think thats a great way to show the IR board whos boss! ***
Lets just hope you didn’t want to use that ha
I guess that goes down to a use to the book “101 ways to use a IR Board”
Well theres your problem
