Some time back MarkNWIA (I believe) posted a Excel
sheet that kept track of how full bins are during harvest.
As some of you know I and others on here, play around with Arduino stuff.
I put together a display for my truck, which does not have a compass
or inside / outside temperature display.
Looking for a different display I wanted to explore the Nextion displays.
Very nice looking, and priced reasonable. They come in a variety of sizes,
up to 7 inches.
Pictured is a 3.5" display that I used in my truck display with a stand alone
display of 5 bins (only one pictured) with a sliding scale to be moved to give
a indication of where the level of the grain is in the bin.
This is a stand alone display. only 5 volts required. It will loose settings
if it looses power.
The neat thing about this is with just a little programing / input this could
be easily incorporated with current grain systems to automatically update
as corn flows thru the system.
Another fun project!!
Sorry for the poor picture quality.
