Electric-Canada Is For:
- Anyone taking on a DIY (Do
It Yourself) Project.
- Remote Control Kits.
- Great Ideas.
- Simple Solutions.
- Lathe Conversions/ Add-on's
- Mill/ Router/ Engraver/ Torch/ Laser/ Controllers.
- Programming Information.
- Motor Information.
Gear-Heads. Developers. Inventors.
You will find detailed descriptions on many electrical-parts and items found online, in stores, and in everyday household items.
Electrical components are described in detail and master kits can be found for each one; find essential links, and suggested projects worth taking on, this way everything is under one roof so things are organized and you learn the easy way.
Arduino code and projects are also available find sketches and buy kits using Pay-Pal; in the future you'll see some stuff on "E-Bay" among other places like Amazon, if you don't see what you're looking for here just inquire by sending an email describing the item, or email just for fun, we'd love to hear from you.
We're on Kickstarter (Soon), please check out the "Thank You Page", hopefully soon to be populated with a list of people who've contributed to building this community.
Education and fear of learning something New:
If you speak English you're aware of how a word can vary in spelling and in meaning but still sound the same, for example please try to answer this question by filling in the blank, please spell it correctly:
Which, Witch, is the right ..... ?
Every day you speak to people and use a complex language, your brain (no one else's) processes this information and you do it while you walk or work, however, for some reason some people have a fear of learning something new, for example a new programming language...
The Programming Language Example:
A programming language has to be simple enough for a computer to understand, so why would it be hard for the human that built it?
A programming language is made so anyone can learn and program a computer, if you can learn how to speak English and read this, you can learn to program.
So how does a programming language work?
A compiler processes the so called "code" and compiles it into "Binary-Code" known as "HEX" this "HEX" is what the computer uses to switch on and off power to specific parts of a circuit for that chosen end result, your computer if it has a 2-Ghz Processor can cycle 2,000,000,000 per second.
The Arduino may do this 9600 times or more, but not as fast as the average home computer.
If you're wondering how to program the world around you just follow the links found at the bottom of this page or to the left of this page.
The information provided here is free and found all over the World-Wide-Web for free, in some cases you won't find any marketing on this website, and in time it will be fazed out all together, we do have plans to sell kits only, these kits are made with the sole intent of helping people learn how electronics work and how they work with programming.
- Do you have some electronic stuff hanging around, or maybe some junk, for example a broken Alarm-clock, Vacuum, or appliance?
- Wonder what the parts do or if you can make something with them, why throw it out when most likely only one part is causing the device not to work anymore?
- Can't just chuck those old electronics?
Well you've stopped in at the proper place!
Read on to learn about individual components, find everything from Resistors and PLC's to FM-Transmitters, build it yourself and in some cases buy the more complex kits pre-assembled.
