Motorized Slider for Pro-Camera Using Nema 23 Stepper Motor or Servo Motor

Motorized Camera Slider for Pro Camera Like Red Epic, Alexa, Black Magic, Canon, Nikon, Fuji.

The Slider can handle Payload Up to 20Kg, It  has option for stepper motor or brushed/Brush-Less servo mounting , linear movement can be controlled using Arduino, motion control software, Radio frequency remote, Joystick based wire remote, Futaba RC Remote. Infra Red Remote Controlled, Normal Hand movement possible without motor. 

Application

  • Stop Motion
  • Time Lapes
  • Motion Controlled Shoot
  • Smooth Linear Motion

Note : I will update the pictures of stepper motor, brushed/brush-less servo mount.

Temperature Controlled Fan ON-OFF Switch Using Arduino Nano 16X2 LCD and LM35 Sensor

 

Compact Temperature controlled fan on/off switch is based on Arduino Nano multipurpose TWOVOLT shield, the circuit consist LM35 temperature sensor, 16X2 LCD, 12V relay including driver transistor, circuit works with 12V supply and can controlled any fan from 12V to 230V AC, for testing purpose I have connected 12V DC fan. At normally open switch of relay. The shield has many other parts can be omit if not required, refer circuit diagram for more info. Relay can switch load up to 7amps supply 5V to 230V AC.
