What better use of Arduino than to solve problems? One of our academy members, Nigel Moody, wanted to make sure that the transducers he was changing out at work were actually the source of the problem. (A transducer is essentially a sensor – it converts some form of energy into an electrical signal – so that the energy can be measured effectively.)
Nigel used an Arduino UNO to measure the output of the transducers, and then used an LCD to display that information in a readable fashion. Read on to find out more about Nigel’s transducer tester and how he made it.
