I'm no expert, but reading about the tuning challenge posed by monofilament makes me wonder why you don't try metal strings...
I developed this Arduino Simulator by myself: http://xevro.be
It requires an Arduino Board but there is no need to use real parts. There is a free version and a paid version (more options…).
A superb group of prizes of any engineer, first rate RS!
@Oding I cannot locate the module I used about 10 years ago now but for a 1kW variable frequency drive to a conveyor belt motor to control both speed and direction I used a Danfoss module. This was 230V...
Thanks for this article good info
Automation makes for easy, efficient and space-saving aeration and ventilation – speed control is already sufficient. For many applications, all you need is one switch, one SINAMICS G frequency converter and one motor.
This guide describes the process of mounting a thermoelectric module for use in a thermal management or energy harvesting system and for achieving the maximum potential from your TEC or TEG device.
An introduction to Power over Ethernet covers the basics of power transfer its characteristic and the stages of the power initialization cycle. Also, we focus on the new features of the 802.3bt standard for delivery of greater power capability.
Whether it’s compensating for temperature-dependent electrical changes, or ensuring equipment doesn’t overheat, there’s almost always a need to know whether your system is blowing hot or cold.
