Load Cell(Argon 1)

Code

Load Cell(Argon 1)

C/C++
// This #include statement was automatically added by the Particle IDE.
#include <HX711ADC.h>



#define DOUT  0
#define CLK  2
HX711ADC scale(DOUT, CLK);
float temperature;

void LED(const char *event, const char *data)
{
    String pew = data;
    temperature = pew.toFloat();
}
 float calibration_factor = 535; // this calibration factor is adjusted according to my load cell
float units;
float units1;

void setup() {
    int ledB=D6;
    int ledG=D7;
    int ledR=D8;

pinMode(ledB,OUTPUT);
pinMode(ledG,OUTPUT);
pinMode(ledR,OUTPUT);


 Serial.begin(9600);  
 Serial.println("Press T to tare");
scale.set_scale(calibration_factor); //Adjust to this calibration factor
 scale.tare(); 
}



void loop() {
units = scale.get_units(), 5;
 if (units < 0)
 {
   units = 0.00;
 }

 units1 = (units/29.57);
 
 
    Particle.publish("Ounces", String(units1),PUBLIC);  //subscribe to this mouse event.
    delay(1000);  //delay to prevent overloading the cloud communication.
   Particle.subscribe("LED_Caleb",LED);
   if (temperature<1.1) {
            digitalWrite(D6,HIGH);
            digitalWrite(D7,LOW);
       digitalWrite(D8,LOW);
   }

 {
   char temp = Serial.read();
   if(temp == 't' || temp == 'T')
     scale.tare();  //Reset the scale to zero      
 }
} 

Solenoid (Argon 2)

C/C++
int solenoid = D2;
int pushbutton = D3;
int val = 0;


void setup() {
pinMode(solenoid, OUTPUT);
pinMode(pushbutton, INPUT);

}

void loop() {
val = digitalRead(pushbutton);
if (val == HIGH)
    {
        digitalWrite(solenoid, LOW);
    }
    else 
    {
        digitalWrite(solenoid, HIGH);
    }
}

LCD (Argon 3)

C/C++
// include the library code:
#include <LiquidCrystal.h>

// initialize the library with the numbers of the interface pins
LiquidCrystal lcd(5,4,3,2,1,0)

;void setup()
{
// set up the LCD's number of columns and rows:
lcd.begin(16, 2);
lcd.clear();

}

void loop()
{
lcd.setCursor(0,0); // Sets the cursor to col 0 and row 0
lcd.print("SensorVal1: "); // Prints Sensor Val: to LCD

lcd.setCursor(0,1); // Sets the cursor to col 1 and row 0
lcd.print("SensorVal2: "); // Prints Sensor Val: to LCD

}
