    This application, based on the powerful symbolic engine "Wolfram Alpha", process math formulas, isolate variables and find solutions for complex formulas that are difficult to handle manually.

    Mathematicians could also do without this application, but some programmers will find it very useful.

    ————-
    And to test the formulas there is also the MathTester application
    https://www.theremino.com/downloads/uncategorized#mathtester

    We have updated the Covid19 application to the version 2.1
    https://www.theremino.com/video-e-notizie/coronavirus#covid19app

    The comparative graphs of the Italian regions no longer worked because civil protection has changed the format of the data.
    Now the graphs automatically adjust to the new formats.

  14. Antonio Zanardo says:

    Dear Livius,
    I have bought in the past several Theremino GA to build special tools that use Geiger tubes. All the hardware and software needed to store data in Arduino uno with RTC and SD card I have built and written them myself, and everything works satisfactorily.
    Lately I bought a Master Dil-V5 without even understanding how I could use it. You will say that I am a fool, but I'm curious to know if I can benefit from it for my instruments, or for their control. Could you suggest me a basic reading on why and how this interface is used? thank you and goodbye
    Antonio Zanardo

  15. Antonio Zanardo says:

    Hello Livio,
    I'm using the MasterDil-V5 and the two software Theremino Hal and Theremino Geiger to plot the graphs of the signals produced by a geiger-like instrument.
    The Theremino Geiger presents on the top of the screen, on the right side and on the left side two dates. The one on the right is correct and corresponds to the computer time, while the date on the left is different and I don't understand what it refers to. Please explain it to me?

    In addition, if the graph shows some interesting point, you cannot know the moment when this happened, as the abscissa axis does not show time.
    It can be remedied, and if so how?

    Thank you
    Antonio Zanardo

    • Livio says:

      The left date is the beginning of the visible graph.

      Theremino Geiger is almost ten years old (2011) and should be completely rewritten, but unfortunately now we have to follow other more urgent applications and we don't have time.

      The Geiger application is already on the to-do list but I don't know when we will start editing it. It could take months or even years.

  16. Livio says:

    From now, on all pages of this site (in the central part at the top) there is a convenient connection to the THEREMINO-FORUM.

    We have positioned the forum on the Elettroamici site to allow an exchange of information between different systems (Arduino, PIC, Theremino, General electronics. etc…).

    Use the forum in place of the posts of this blog, makes discussions easier. In the forum you can share pictures and even write messages with better tools, add wiring diagrams, color the text, etc..

  17. GIANNI CARRARO says:

    Hello Livio ….how do i register on the forum to ask questions ?

    Thank you

    Another question related to resin printers: i use chitubox for my photon, but in chitubox there is a configuration for a standard printer that works with g codes.
    I would like to build one with a bigger screen but I don't have the skills to understand if the pieces I would like to use are compatible.
    you want me to make you a list of the things I would like to use ? Thank you

    • Livio says:

      To subscribe I think you should press “Login” and then follow the instructions.
      But I'll get Amilcare to answer you better, the site administrator.

      I'm sorry but I don't know resin printers so I have no advice for you. We have our own version to control resin cutters and printers, with the Theremino_CNC application. But you should build everything from scratch and know exactly what you are doing. And it also takes a lot of experience in electronics, in programming and in the Theremino system. So I don't recommend it.

  18. GIANNI CARRARO says:

    Thanks Livio, my cnc theremino works which is a marvel also thanks to the modifications made by my request, do you remember that you gave me some tips for resetting my custom probe?
    for the loggin ,it asks me for username and password….but it doesn't give me a chance to sign up.

    THEREMINO FILTERS APPLICATION

    We have updated the Theremino Filters application to the version 1.2
    https://www.theremino.com/downloads/uncategorized#filters

    Now the difference between “Browse folders” and “Load filter” is highlighted with an explicit button. Previously you had to press the box with a blue background and someone, who had not read the “mini instructions”, couldn't load filters.

    Now the chosen filter file path remains valid as a local path even if you move or rename the parent folder.

    START ALL APPLICATION

    We have updated the Theremino StartALL application to the version 1.1
    https://www.theremino.com/downloads/foundations#starter

    It is now more convenient to use, in addition to opening applications, it also closes them, therefore there is no longer a need for the Theremino Helper application, previously used to close groups of applications. Furthermore, StartALL closes only the applications it has opened and not all thereminic applications starting for “Theremino_”, as the Helper application did.

    HAL APPLICATION

    We have published the version 8.6 of the HAL that allows Windows to close properly.
    https://www.theremino.com/downloads/foundations#hal

    Previous versions caused the messages:
    ENG: “This app is preventing shutdown”
    ENG: “This application prevents system shutdown”

  21. Livio says:

    We have finished publishing the conveyed wave remote control:
    https://www.theremino.com/hardware/adapters#powerlineremote

    This project can be useful for remotely switching on and off appliances connected to the electrical network, for example water pumps, lighting systems, irrigation or ventilation systems for a greenhouse, etc..

  22. Livio says:

    We have published the SignalScope, version 2.4, with useful improvements.
    https://www.theremino.com/downloads/foundations#signalscope

  23. Livio says:

    We have published the version 3.0 at SlotsOverNet
    https://www.theremino.com/downloads/foundations#slotsovernet
    This version also works over the Internet, either by using a VPN or by yourself.

    We have published the version 1.2 del CounterReader:
    https://www.theremino.com/hardware/inputs/sensors#counterreader

  24. Jose Ivan DIAZ BARRERA says:

    Hello,
    Sincerely, your work is very interesting!!! Congratulations!!
    I am particularly interested in lis344 accelerometers with the amplification option. Despite two full days at your site, it is impossible for me to know how can we supply electricity, geophones when they are hundreds of meters from the PC? . is your system only useful for one “geophone” close to your computer? i.e. close to the USB socket? (10 max meters?).

    Waiting for your reply,
    Best regards,
    Ivan Diaz

    • Livio says:

      The master module must be kept close to the USB socket, then 10 meters Max.

      To connect the Master with the LIS344 you can use a shielded cable with four internal wires to carry GND (on the sock) and 3.3V, CH1, CH2, CH3 on the internal wires.

      If you want to use only one accelerometer channel, you just need a shielded cable with two internal wires: GND on the sock, 3.3V on the red wire and CH1 on the white wire.

      The length of the cables can be hundreds of meters.

      To make sure the USB continues to communicate even in the event of strong induced disturbances (machinery or lightning) you could add three resistors, one for each channel, close to the Master, as explained here:
      https://www.theremino.com/technical/connection-cables#long
      https://www.theremino.com/technical/communications#pullup2

      Of course in your case , since there is no button but only the signal you will only use the 10k resistors you see in the images and you will not use the 330k ones and the capacitors.

      For greater protection, the resistors can also be raised up to 33k or 100k but beware that in this case the background noise would increase a bit.

      Also keep in mind that with accelerometers there is always a fairly loud background noise produced by the accelerometers themselves, a noise that is many tens of times greater than that which would be obtained with geophones connected to the ADC24 module. So no microtremor analysis but only nearby earthquakes and events “strong motion”.

      ——————————————————————

      Or you could use the IotModules that connect wirelessly to the IotHALs:
      https://www.theremino.com/downloads/foundations#iothal

  25. Livio says:

    We have published the latest versions of all applications that use the file “SlotNames.txt”

    The new versions of HAL, ArduHAL, IotHAL, NetHAL, SlotViewer and SignalScope automatically reload the file when it is edited by an external application. This is very convenient because as soon as you change the file with one of them all the others also reload it and immediately show the new comments.

  26. ROBERTO BINI says:

    Hello Livio,
    I would like to ask if with the DAA application in oscilloscope mode and using the SUB function in practice it is like having a differential measurement between the two channels. I am waiting for the delivery of a sound card to be modified and later I would like to try to use the application to see the signal between A and B of an RS-485 serial line. And’ You can see the eye diagram to evaluate the signal quality in your opinion or something wrong?

    Thank you
    Roberto

    • Livio says:

      And’ certainly possible.

      With SUB you will see a tension:
      – positive when A is greater than B
      – negative when B is greater than A
      – and about zero volts when they are equal

      However, keep in mind that the bandwidth is for only 20 KHz then you will need to adjust the baud to 4800 or less. Maybe even a 1200, if you want to see the rising and falling edges well.

    We have updated the Covid19 application
    Download it from here:
    https://www.theremino.com/video-e-notizie/coronavirus#covid19app

  29. Livio says:

    We have updated the Theremino_Covid19 application to the version 2.4
    Download it from here:
    https://www.theremino.com/video-e-notizie/coronavirus#covid19app

    This version works fine again and quickly downloads files to all PCs.
    They changed the version of the TLS from 1.1 to 1.2 and it took days to find out.
    We thank Fabrizio and his intuition for these things, without him we would not have identified the problem.

  30. Livio says:

    We have published a new section on intelligent engines with two new applications Theremino_RS485 and Theremino_ModBus:
