This project box is for semi permanent projects that require housing. It is equipped with AXE022 proto-board, AXE111 data logger memory expander, breadboard area, 40x4 LCD, DS1307 RTC module & infrared PCB.
Using an infrared remote controller negates the need to cut holes in the box for push buttons. Interaction with the Picaxe program is easily achieved by using a 08M2 to monitor irin then passing this incoming data on to the 40X2 master Picaxe via Hserout/Hserin scratchpad background receive. Interrupt on Hserflag, this method doesn’t require timeouts.
Currently this project box in running a version of my Large Digit Clock program, with the addition of displaying the date in large format.
