Voltages

VoltagesI've also been steadily plodding away on the electronics front.

The picture shows a clip from a web page I made, which is available using a wireless connection in and around Lady Jane.

With this setup, I can now see the voltage any time I want on my mobile phone.

The good bit is I can also start and stop the generator from anywhere on board using my phone - provided I'm within range of the wireless router of course.

You do need to be logged in to do this, as I don't want people cruising by switching the generator on during the night!

Later this will be extended to include other data of interest on board, such as engine temperatures and pressures.
