    Default 3.2" Touch Screen Controller

    So I had some time to play with my 3.2" TFT Controller just to add a few lines of code for Feed and Water Change Modes as well as take out the High/Low Temp Settings til I figure something out for Fahrenheit..... Feed Mode is working but am currently debugging the code as sump is labeled as off all the time even when on in the Main Screen and Feed and Water Change Mode Screen....



    Main Screen

    Oh it's definitely a thought.....the original code is open source though so anyone can do it really.

    LOL,not evryone.Myself included .I don't have time to program my apex let alone figure how to do that.LMK if you start to sell these.You take apex's on trade in??

    Jokeing aside there is a real market for custom pre programed controlers.Lot's of people would pay extra to sit down with someone and explain what they're running,how they want it set up and get it ready to go and to have a simple easy to use changeable touch screen.That alone would be a huge selling point.

    Nice looking project. A few questions. Is this a standalone controller? I assume it is not hooked up onto internet , are you going to try to do this? How much cash do you have into it? Have you found a "cheap" place for quality probes?

    Hi Paulo,

    At present time there isnt internet hooked up yet.Right now this project is currently funded by donations....I've put in 200 and another 160 in donated funds so 360 total so far.Presently I use probes from China but the salinity probe requires a bnc connector and unfortunately Atlas Scientific is the only supplier.

    This project was abandoned due to family life. But try out the Jarduino.
