Recently I found a broken HP elitebook 820 in the electronics junk at work. The notebook was already cannibalized for parts but the display still looked good.
In the upcoming days I will move this website to a new hosting provider.
This means it will not be available for some time
Looks like it’s done now
Main goal was to enable https which seems to work now
I’m fascinated with slitscan imaging.
I may go a little bit deeper into the topic at a later time but for now I just want to share a Windows PowerShell based tool that I wrote to generate slitscan images from a 2D video the most simple way. By dragging and dropping a video-file. Continue reading Slitscan script
Disclaimer: This posting is a work in progress. I’ve mode this some years ago and was asked to provide some documentation:
I have parts of a SAIA PCDII that I wanted to make use out of. The ourput boards have 6 relais each and 8 of them are connected to a backplane connector. This makes 48 mains voltage (low current) switchable channels.
Confusing what I mean? Have a look at this video
I’ve found some of the pictures I took while working on this and just a few days ago I found the box with the hardware itself.
For now the old pictures.
Unfortunately I just this one picture of the pin out.
- redraw schematic
- Figure out connector type
- sketch pinout of PCD2.A220 board
- sketch pinout backplane
- comment ino file
I got both a genuine Manfrotto 323 and the 12$ ebay clone and took some pictures for you to compare. The Manfrotto one looks more valuable. The release lever of the clone is a bit loose bit holds the plates in very well. The Manfrotto plates fit the clone very well too.
I think the clone is good enough for what I’m doing with it so I will stick with it.
I have changed some details with the hosting of this site.
In theory everything should work as before.
If you are experiencing any problems, like broken links, please let me know in the comments or send me an e-mail
I needed to make an AV-Cable for a monitor but the vendor did not supply an appropriate cable so I had to make my own cable.
I got myself a Feelworld Field monitor since I want to improve my Youtube video game a bit.
But first I needed to build a AV Cable to connect my Olympus Pen camera to the (legacy) 3,5mm, 4 ring AV jack of the FW597 since olympus Pen camera do not support live video HDMI output.
Long story short, the pinout:
2, Video in
3, Right audio channel
4, Left audio channel
(1 being the ring at the base of the plug and 4 the tip of the plug.)
