I also want to see if it can have Timer function?
Actually I just need Timer function for 60 min
I even don’t need a clock function
Please let me know

Yes all intersecting lines are connections, sorry for the confusion.

The first link in the article (just under the main picture) will take you to the kit link. Sorry, this chip is not currently available as a separate per-programmed chip but if you have a programmer you can download the code and burn one.

I was looking at the schematic and have a few questions. Concerning c3 and c4, do they make a connection to pin 1 and pin 3 respectively.. Also do all the grounds share one ground? I am assuming so but wanted to check. Also i am looking for the controller.. Do you still have them for sale and if so how much? Thank you for your time.

I am not sure what the problem could be since I have never had this issue. The only thing I can think would be that the scale adjust jumper is not allowing the pin to pull high (internal pull up). Please make sure there is nothing on this pin that causes it to always be pulled down.

great project! We tried to create a new hex file from your sources. After downloading the file, we could calibrate the multimeters but the normal time software didn’t start to run. Any ideas? Do we have to set some more fuses for the interrupt? We are no experts in PIC programming. Any comments are welcome.

Thanks for purchasing the kit and sorry to hear it was not what you expected. I will guide you through any questions you may have. Everything is on the schematic, I am not sure the vague parts you are referring to but all you need to do is connect the pins shown on the schematic.

We have other kits that have very detailed manuals that guide you step by step but the reason this one is listed as advanced is that there is no guidance other than the schematic.

I’ll attempt to build from the “schematic” on the website, but think it’s going to be a pain in the butt to do so. I’ve built a lot of kits and some stuff from schematic, but this one looks kinda vague… as if the guy who drew it was way to familiar with his project. I am not an EE.


A photo of the wiring side of the perfboard would be way helpful.
