Arduino Cable Tracer Is helping Diagnose Damaged USB Cables

(*2*)

We’ve all discovered ourselves swimming among too many similar-looking USB cables over time. Some have all of the conductors and capability, some are bizarre power-only oddballs, and a few rate our telephones briefly whilst others don’t. It’s an enormous headache and one that [TechKiwiGadgets] hopes to unravel with (*3*)the Arduino Cable Tracer.

The tracer works with USB-A, Mini-USB, Micro-USB, and USB-C cables to resolve whether or not connections are damaged or now not and likewise to spot wiring configurations. It’s constructed across the Arduino Mega 2560, which is perfect for offering an enormous quantity of GPIO pins that are ideal for one of these function. Probing effects are displayed upon the 2.8″ TFT LCD show that makes it simple to determine which cables do what.

It’s a tidy construct, and one that lets consider could be very helpful for purchasing a snappy move/no-go standing on any cables dug out of a junk field someplace. Just be sure you WIDLARIZE any dangerous cables you in finding so that they by no means bother you once more. Video after the damage.
