    Hi Keith,yes some problem on software or code. I have try several other codes on same Arduino nano. its perfect working the lcd. even the Hello world code is work perfect.in the original Debate 168 code has like this ,LiquidCrystal_I2C lcd(0x27, 2, 1, 0, 4, 5, 6, 7, 3, POSITIVE); // Set the LCD I2C address // In my case 0x27once I try to upload it always say ( POSITIVE was not declared on this scope)Then I change it toLiquidCrystal_I2C lcd(0x27,20,4); // set the LCD address to 0x27 for a 16 chars and 2 line displayafter change it I can upload the code to Arduino. app show Success: Done uploading.but I can't see any difference on LCD. it still show Hello, World!This is all done with Online Arduino editor.if i try same code with my Desktop Arduino, aim getting following error,Arduino: ...

    Hi Keith Thanks again. thanks for the clear reply.Regards.

    Hi Keith,after very long fight I found some other codes has lcd address something different. I just copy it and past it. now code updated and I can see it on LCD. aim still not connect the Arduino to Circuit and on the third row current it show minus values even watts also minus value.

    Thanks, ago it.

  • ARDUINO SOLAR CHARGE CONTROLLER ( Version 2.0)

    HI,I have 3 more questions.in the diagram there are two points showing I+. I- this is for ACS 712?P6KE36CA diode not available here. what is the substitute for it?ACS712 it has 3pin out 5V, analog in, Ground, these connections has to connect for this circuit or Arduino or just leave it?Regards.

    this look like different from Deba168

    Oh shame! I never notice it!!.Thank you FarmerKeith.

    Thank you.

    Hi FarmerKeith, again I wish to ask something about this Solar charging control. this circuit can be handle maximum 10A current. in case if I need to extend the the current 10- 20 A what should I have to do? just replace Buck booster or ACS712 for a higher version?Note: still aim waiting to receive SZBK07 module from Aliexpress to try your circuit.Regards.

    Hi,I wish to made this, but I have some questions about this project.aim going to use it for my Solar charging control ( it is 12V 200W panel with 12V 100A battery)1: 12V 100A battery can be messier on this? and it can be use it with 200W solar panel.2: this project can be use Arduino Nano instead of Uno. if yes I may need to change the codes?3: it is possible to use this project without Ethernet shield?Regards.

    Hi Farmerkeith,Thank you so much for your advice. and most important is here. i have original PWM but it has very limited display.it has just 3 LED . i wish to add a arduino with lcd to my current charge control.also i would like to build a Charge control/1KW inverter with load/over charge protection. it should be charge by Solar on day time and charge it from AC on night time. if you have any kind of circuit please share with me.i wish to assemble it.Regards.

    Hi FarmerKeith,i have a problem to read your PCB. aim using a Mac, and download all the files you have provide me. i can see the PDF schematic, but PCB cannot open. can you please advice me from with software i can open the PCB
