Yesterday It was fourth of July all over again, My partner
in crime Gerald, accidently shorted 120V AC to Ground! After
the blinding sparks were gone and a few smoldering wires.
The PLC looks to be unharmed and my relays were still
intact. Thank God!
Oh let me tell you about my little adventure to Radio Shack!
Now I know there not the brightest technicians in the world.
So before I left my house I printed up a picture for them of
the relay I wanted. I told him when I got there what I
wanted and gave him the print out. He look at it and walked
over to where the relays where at and gave me the relay I
wanted! Then he look at me and ask, "What are relays?"
:rolleyes: So, I explain what they were used for and what
not. He look at me with a blank face, turned around, then
turned and faced me again. He asked, "Do you own a Cell
Phone?" I almost busted out laughing.
As for my robot arm, our relay design to solve our problem
is working 100%.
