Workshop 88 is offering a continuation of the Arduino classes featuring a concentration on interfacing the arduino with external devices. solid state relays, H-bridges and other ways of controlling high voltages sources and motors.
If you already have an arduino, you have all the materials you'll need for this class. Otherwise, you can order a kit and we'll have it for you when you come to the class.
What you need to bring to the class: a laptop with the arduino environment already installed, your arduino, and your breadboard. What you'll get from the class: an understanding of how to work with the arduino to control higher current and higher voltage DC devices, 110-volt AC devices, and various servos, steppers and motors.
The class was originally scheduled for 2/15/14, but is being rescheduled. Watch this space!
