Well I finally got fed up with ironing on PCB transfers and how crap the turn out. A bunch of eBay orders accumulated over a few years and i’m putting together a UV LED exposure box!
I had seen a few of these online but no full instructions to do one. I wanted a countdown timer controlled box that was self contained. I had a old faux travel case around which got ‘donated’ to the cause and I stole some clear glass from mums work for the exposure panel.
Dad found one that worked with an UNO and I just had to buy a serial to LCD adapter,5V relay and keypad, both brought from Aliexpress.
There was some back and forth with finding the right libraries for my LCD and keypad. contact me if you would like the zip file. One of them should work.
Test wire up seemed to work and I just had to cut the case up and mount it all in. I did have to reverse the code so the LED’s would turn on and off in the correct order as I had a master switch on the front of the case to power the thing on and off.
