The Top Business Design Layouts for Your New Blog

Your blog can serve as the hub of your business, so it makes a lot of sense to make sure you have the right look. Right after you set up your domain and web hosting, you should start looking at what kind of layout to use for your blog. If you’re setting up a business blog, you may think that you’ll be confined to certain types of looks. However, there are a wide variety of layouts that you can use to help your blog stand out. Here is a quick list of business design layouts you can use for your blog. Simple Hero Image Layout If you want to go with a minimalist approach and focus on the content, Help Scout has a great layout you can model. Half of … Continue reading

Difference between digital/bourdon pressure gauge

Pressure gauges, defined in the simplest way possible, are instruments used to measure and display pressure. Although all pressure gauges record the same thing, there are still several types of gauges used in various fields. For better or worse there are several factors that determine whether or not a specific gauge should be used in the field. Take, for example, one of the oldest, and still the most popular, Bourdon pressure gauge. The first models of these have existed over a hundred years, whereas now there are digital pressure gauges that are beginning to come into competition with this classic style. Both have their positives and negatives and we intend on exposing them for their similarities and differences in order to give a better understanding on which type of pressure … Continue reading

Monitoring three phase power usage with Arduino and keypad shield

This project is second iteration of DIY Life. Previously he has built a single phase power meter using similar technique. He wanted to keep things very simple, os he used only non-contact current measurement only by using Talema AC1030 current sensors on each phase line. They are capable of capturing 30A nominal and 75A maximum current. In order to measure power accurately a voltage measurements should be taken. But for sake of simplicity, voltage is only taken as 220V. The only focus is to measure current correctly which depends on burden resistor selection and measurement drop voltage through Arduino analog input. Input current then must be calibrated with known load. Rough estimate can be made with 100W light bulb. If you are considering building this three phase power meter, be … Continue reading

Arduino based high altitude balloon data logger

One of the more interesting experiments you can do above surface of earth is fly balloons in to stratosphere. Fun thing is that whole experiment isn’t very expensive and can give tons of fun. Probably most expensive thing here is balloon itself. The other parts can be used as you desire. Spaceshark have shared his experiment and build details on his instructable. He used Arduino Uno for logging various basic sensors detecting latitude, longitude, altitude, wind speed. He wanted to keep things simple and self contained, because at heights above 60000 ft some sensors start failing, e.g. GPS. Batteries are also another issue due to cold air above. He used authentic Arduino to make sure it works bellow -40 degrees Celsius. Fake ones can fail even at 0 degrees. Same … Continue reading

9 Tips for Nebulizing the Young Ones

Kids are adorable. They are the most loveable thing to be present on this planet earth. It’s like god has sent angels on the planet so that people could learn how to love and how not to hate. The young ones who are perhaps the most affable thing on this planet. So, what happens when these small wonders fall ill? It for sure looks bad and one whether connected or not just wants to have them walk over the pain. And that is why we have come these nebulization tips for your young ones. Today’s air is no good for young ones. The dust, the pollution, the smoke, all have adverse effect. So just to keep your child healthy and fit and having them not be in pain once being … Continue reading
