Alternative Firmware: LRTimelapse Pro Timer Free TLC Edition + Manual

#1 Sheeba
Hello Gunther, hello people,
Here is a little update of my PT firmware. In the previous version, the #define sensor option always got the warning from the compiler:
"Low memory available, stability issues may occur."
Although that had no effect, but after I got the same warning on another project and then it actually came to problems with less than 350 bytes of available memory, I was looking for a solution to optimize the memory. I found a solution and then integrated it into my pro-timer version. The change does not affect the function!
Version 1.11 is attached !!
Best regards, Hans

Hello Gunther, hello people,

After intensive testing of version 1.03B and a few small changes, I have generated version 1.10 as a final version. Final, because all my requirements for a timelapse controller are integrated in this version and all requests and suggestions from other users have been taken into account.

I would like to collect further wishes and suggestions in order to create another version if necessary.

The firmware and the detailed manual are attached.

I would be happy about feedbacks.

I wish you great timelapse videos and have fun with this version!

Best Regards,

I think you are taking giant steps in this project!
Well done, well thought out, and well documented.
Some questions:
You use a BC547, and its associated resistance should be ... 1K?

Right now my ProTimer has two outputs:
1 without the second transistor, only for the shot.
2 without any transistor, connected to the SDA, SDC ports of an arduino one.

I do not think I can use your new software, but I will try to start off with a full set of two outputs.

This reminds me of a famous Spanish project called Photoduino, which, if you do not know it, will interest you:
I built a photoduino, originally created for high-speed photography, with lots of sensors, but I think it has everything necessary to accommodate the logical part of the intervalometer that is being designed here.

Long live the DIY!

Hi Hans,
Today I found time to update the several LRT PTFs that I have built which had v1.03 B software to v1.13.
I see that decoupling has disappeared.
One problem that I have noticed is that the delay time is faulty as it will not display beyond 09:06:07 when the time gets corrupted. Apart from that it appears ok.
No problems with the LRT PTMax1.3 so far . Soon I will connect it to my TLSMC and see how it works.

Hello Richard, Thank you for your feedback. The problem with the display at Delay Time was known and already fixed with the other versions. I have changed it now in this version as well. The new version 1.14 can be found in the attachments. I have removed Decoupling Time because Delay Time replaces it. With Delay Time you can now set a variable decoupling time.
Thanks, Hans

Hi Hans,
Thanks. I have updated all 5 of my LRTimelapse Pro Timer Free TLC Edition controllers are are all working fine.
