Earthing & Ground Explained – Also Chassis Ground, Signal Ground, Ground for Schematics, & More
RimstarOrg has another excellent video – a whirlwind tour of the different meanings and applications of earth and ground, including an evolving diagram for understanding how power comes in, and eventually goes to ground.
What is ground and what does it mean to do Earthing? Here I answer what ground is, how it relates to your wall socket and the wiring in your appliances, how to get grounds for your high voltage and other experiments, and about the ground symbol in electrical schematics.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
