Multiple modules can be daisychained. Depending on the power available you can connect many of these modules together. The display will show a preprogrammed line of text first. After that you can type in some characters and send them to the dispay over the serial connection. Only the first display needs to be wired to the Arduino.
Any additional modules will be daisychained. See this example featuring 3 displays:. It will allow you to send text from yout computer to the display over the serial connection. A few values you can customize:. After you have uploaded the sketch to the Arduino, you will first see the predefined text scrolling along.
Hello, Thank you for your inspirational tutorial. I have the same failure. I want to know what is the key factor in scrolling?
I want to do it in C, but what I get is synchronized data along the 4 modules. Then the scrolling would be aligned to the Matrix, given that the pinout should be on the left.
Seems like the Arduino is only addressing a single module at a time, i. Any suggestions on what might be my problem? Thank you for this tutorial. I uploaded and got it to work… I was trying to code this kind of project before but have not succeeded… I have just one question.
Is it possible to increase the max. Thank you again and thank you in advance for your answer. Your email address will not be published. Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email.

No Comments Oct 29, No Comments Aug 6, No Comments Aug 4, About this Project: In this project we will learn how to interfacing ESP module with MAX matrix display to scrolling text message from web user interface. Thanks for the tutorial. After a few hours of searching online, your was the only one to work. Managed to have it running in a few minutes on an ESP F. I am glad to know that, Have fun and keep visiting my posts follow me on.
You can certainly see your expertise in the work you write. The world hopes for more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to say how they believe. Always follow your heart. Thanks a lot, this works great with my nodemcu. What I was really trying to do though was to use MQTT messages to feed the display instead of the website. Any chance you will give this a try and make it work?
Share your project details with me, may be I can help … email : admin etechpath. Hi, Thanks for your work and sharing this program. I played around with it, and found that I was unable to connect to port 80 on the ESP, when it was on my Apple Airport accesspoint but when connected to a hotspot on my android phone it worked.
Great job, and thank you for sharing your code modification. It would be great if you can copy paste your full code in comments of this post so that other visitors can try your code too. Thank you. Below is the code, its mostly unchanged: 1.
Added: WiFi. Default is half intensity meaning 7. Valid values are I made this fabulous message display to show me some text information from domoticz. Must i make a script which logs in and places the text and send a return?
Anybody who can assist me? Find contact-us link on upper right corner of this website to reach admin. Unfortunately this doest work for me. Seems all the examples I come across have outdated libraries and when complied errors come up. This is the 11th eample code I have attempted and none of them work.
I know this is not that difficult to do, just I am not a programmer and rely on program support. Can someone show me where I can go today and find some example code that will work. You can download updated library from github, and trust me all examples are working very well without any changes.
Hi, Thanks for your work! Very Very HelpFull, I like to set the intensity with mx. Your way of describing everything in this paragraph is genuinely nice, every one be capable of easily know it, Thanks a lot.

In this tutorial we want to control scrolling text on the MAX led Matrix display using a custom webpage. Before proceeding you can first learn how to control this type of led matrix using Arduino from the link below: Max Led Matrix Interfacing with Arduino.
The Max led matrix display and Esp Nodemcu are connected as shown below. In my case i have used only four four led matrices but the setup can accommodate up to eight matrices and can be specified in the code. Code for Max Led matrix with Esp Nodemcu. Take time to learn how this library works with the display before proceeding. You can also change the design and appearance of the web page by changing the HTML and CSS part of the code but only do this if you have prior knowledge on web development and design otherwise the web page may not be displayed!
When the above code is uploaded to the Nodemcu, the URL can be checked from the serial monitor and can be used to access the web page for controlling the text being displayed on the MAX Led diaplay. From this web page we can enter a message and that message will be displayed on the matrix.

There is code out there to drive 8 segment numeric displays but not a matrix.
There are also other programs that don't work, and there are videos on YouTube that don't have any code. This is my effort from 3 or 4 different sources and cobbled together into this.
I am using NodeMCU 0. There were lots of time delays in the original code which I have removed - the code works OK without them. If there are problems try changing from GPIO15 to another pin.

Of course you will need to change the code! By JohnL Follow. More by the author:. Add Teacher Note. I am assuming that you know how to use your ESP and can load code into it. Here are two examples of Lua code. Attachments matrix. Don't forget to connect all the grounds together. I use a cheap breadboard power supply for the 3. Did you make this project?

This production power i like to visualise by a little display near the washing mashine to decide if its a good situation to start a washing program. Has anyone experience using only esp 12 and MAX to do somthing similar? If yes please let me know and how you would realise this. Thank you very much! Best regards.
Sure, that's possible. What would be your preferred way to provide the data to the the ESP?
It's more a question of how you intend to mesh up your overall system. You are right the overall system structure is not clear yet and I have to think about and understand. The data logger for my photovoltaic system can give me the values of actual power production by script: Code: Select all!

In the second column I listed commonly found names on pin layouts and schemas. The values in the third column signify the actual pin numbers as printed on the NodeMCU development boards. Interestingly the fact that you can rotate them whichever way you like made it more difficult rather than less difficult. In font files e. One byte signifies which of the 8 LEDs in a column should be turned on. Moody is a simple program that declares 3 smilys and an array which contains all of them.
