Lots of new features for stepper motor users !
First, a new board,
the arpstepper which allows stepping motors to be controlled in DMX with small drivers such as A4988, DRV8825, TMC2208 or compatible.
But that's not all, we have been developing a dedicated library for over a year now: the ArpStepper
To install it you just have to update the arpschuino core (version 1.1.0).
And finally, our stepper motor tutorial has been completely revised,
you will find everything you need to control one or more motors in DMX,
from bigger to smaller, with different types of drivers.
March 21 2021
And here are external antennas for the wilulus, arpsensorsRF and arpRF.
Necessary as part of a metal enclosure, an external antenna also slightly improves the RF range.
An IPEX socket and an IPEX> SMA cable allow these antennas to be fitted to our cards.
For arpRFs, choose the new arpRFr3 with IPEX footprint:

6 years already ...
Welcome to our two new members, and thank you to all the users who follow us.
January 3, 2021
We wish you a Happy New Year 2021.
December 02 2020
For this end of the (troubled) year, we are offering you a white arpschuino².
It is a very small series of 10 copies, the specifications are strictly identical to the classic, green models in version 6.2.
We wish you a merry festive season.
october 02 2020
If you visit the Nuit Blanche
this saturday at st Eustache church in Paris,
do not miss the Guillaume Cousin installation (arpschuino inside ;)
Just a note to wish you a good season !
And to wish us all a 20/21 season less disturbed than the previous one ...
Arpschuino is taking vacation until August 17th.
Orders are still taken care of until Wednesday 22.
Happy Holidays to all.
In the wake of the arp>servo, here is the servo tutorial.
You will find there all the necessary informations to control up to 16 servomotors, in DMX, with the arpschuino.
On this occasion, the arpschuino core has been updated, with the addition of the arpschuino_sevo code.
If anything seems unclear or imprecise, please let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org)..
Here is the small board of May, the arp>servo :
Thanks to it you will be able to connect up to 16 servo motors on an arpschuino.
And that's not all, the 3-pin male connectors (gnd, Vcc, signal) also allow you to connect many sensors and actuators.
To be continued: a servo motor tutorial is in preparation.
April 29, 2020
We might as well take advantage of this period of lockdown...
We are writing a library for controlling the stepper motor, speed and position.
So that everyone can have fun with it, it is offered for testing on the arduino forum(french section), do not hesitate to go take a look.
April 19, 2020
Our call for rodoids was well relayed, especially by the city of Montreuil, and worked well.
Thank you to all the contributors, we are still looking for it as production continues, in close collaboration with the fablab La Verrière at Montreuil.
Despite the lockdown, the series of small boards continues, here is the arp> terminal² :
It is an arp>terminals with in addition an access to ground (gnd) and to 3.3 / 5V (Vcc).
The "classic" arp>terminals remain available.
March 29, 2020
Currently, the 3D printer arpschuino running at full capacity to produce visors for caregivers of Montreuil Hospital.
The peak of the epidemic is coming to the Paris region.
March 19, 2020
Locked at home we take the opportunity to tidy up !
All our STL files for 3D printing are now on our github in the "designs" repository.
There you will find boxes for our boards and more.
March 18, 2020
In these difficult times of general lockdown in France, arpschuino continues its activities.
Here is a new little board for this month, the led board :
A simple board with 8 signal LEDs, it can be used to debug or to make a bargraph.
We were asked if shipments continued during the lockdown, the answer is yes, as long as possible,
for small consignments which do not require registration by post, i.e. packages less than 3 cm thick.
We take the usual precautions to avoid contamination, hand washing before touching the kits ect.
Be brave !
February 29, 2020
5 years !
This February 27, arpschuino.fr turned 5 !
Thank you to all of you who trust us.
February 8, 2020
Continuation of the series of small boards!
With this time something more substantial, the arpower mini.
It is quite simply a single-channel arpower, modeled on the power part of the wilulu.
It is ideal for using two high resolution (12 bit) PWM outputs of the arpschuino².
January 28, 2020
Over time, we have made a number of small utility boards, depending on our needs.
Generally we did not take the time to publish them on this website...
So here's our resolution for the new year : to put online one a month until at least June
We will try to stick to it !
So here is the first: the board voltage regulation.
We start gently, it is a simple voltage regulator but this can be very useful on certain assemblies.
To be continued : a new little board in February.
January 1, 2020
Happy 2020 to all, in 3D !
september 24 2019
Here is a new version of the arpsensorsRF:
As the name suggests, it is equipped with a regulation system, which allows to supply it with a voltage between 3.5 and 12v.
The opportunity to build an enclosure with a 14500 li-ion storage slot:
The arpsensorsRF in the classic version remains available for assemblies with a power supply between 2.8V and 3.6V.
august 30 2019
It's the end of the holidays!
Adieu alpine pastures or sunny beach, the arpschuino resumes its activities...
jully 13 2019
For this end of season, we would like to highlight the work, in different areas, two arpschuino users.
Guillaume Cousin and his giant smoke rings of le silence des particules,
and Nicolas Moinet and his incredible Gyrostage, a lyre for fireworks.
Congratulations gentlemen !
ATTENTION: the site will be closed during the month of August.
june 16 2019
We do not give much news, but that does not mean that we do nothing !
A lot of projects in progress but we found the time to get a brand new 3D printer.
A Prusa i3 MK3 S originale. It's just assembled and has not even uttered her first cry !
More on our facebook page !
february 22 2019
Here is a new tutorial !
It's a big tutorial about the wilulu, we tried to be as complete as possible and to put some examples.
As always, do not hesitate to tell us if you find errors or things that do not seem clear to you (email@example.com).
And again an update of the arpschuino core, this is a debug of some examples, the details are available on this page
Finally, we do not resist the desire to present our new workshop :
And thank you to all the "Moccards team" who welcomes us.
January 25, 2019
A new update to the arpschuino core !
See the previous post to apply this update from the Arduino software.
This is a fix, some examples no longer compile because of a syntax error (calcul_freq instead of rf12_calcul_freq).
We still took the opportunity to make an improvement in the examples and the default code of wilulu:
In order to preserve the li-ion batteries, the wilulu goes to sleep mode if the supply voltage drops below 2.8v.
This should prevent you from damaging accumulators by forgetting to remove them after a performance.
The information on this update is available on this page..
January 15 2019
The library and the arpschuino core have been updated.
To apply this update from the Arduino software, click on Tools / Board / Board Manager then,
if the core is already installed, find it in the list and just click on Update .
In program, new features and possibility to change the transmission/reception frequency of radio boards equipped with an RF12.
The examples have been reviewed in this sense.
New example codes also with the source code of the arptefact::transceiver
and aprschuino2PWM_high_resolution which allows to benefit from the fine gradation (12 bit) directly on 2 outputs of the arpschuino.
All the information on this update is available on this page..
A wilulu tutorial is in preparation, the method for changing the radio frequency will be explained in detail.
Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
January 1, 2019
Happy New Year.
Thank you to everyone who trusted us in 2018.
november 30, 2018
It's ready !
In addition to our different boards, we have decided to offer you some devices boxed, ready to use :
Here is the first of the series, the artefact::transceiver.
It is a transceiver to use with our wilulus , arpsensorsRF or with a second artefact::transceiver.
We are already looking at the design of other members of the artefact family.
If you have any ideas, suggestions, let us know: email@example.com.
October 5 2018
You are many for this early season to trust arpschuino. Thank you !
Our last arpschuino²R5 are gone like hotcakes, we have to deal with the out of stock but here is the arpschuino²R6 :
Only one new, but size: you can now optionally mount a pre-regulator that allow to supplies the board with a voltage of up to 24V.
We are a little late with our transceiver but do not worry, it come !
June 29, 2018
You may have seen it already on our facebook page,
we are manufacturing transceivers based on arpschuino² and arpRF .
We are refining and testing them a little this summer and they will be ready in september. p>
We are thinking more and more about organizing short courses/initiations. Things are moving forward and should materialize next season. If you are interested do not hesitate to contact us:
April 13 2018
Two news little things for this month the arp>terminals
an adapter to terminal blocks for arpschuino, and arpschuino² that goes to revision 5 (R5):
With a new marking of the I/O, compatible with the core arpschuino ,
the zener diode deleted and the addition of a capacitor on the reset line of the serial port.
March 8 2018
Here is the spider board !
It is pluggable on the I²c port of the arpschuino, and allows a 12-bit ultra fine dimming for LED, on 16 circuits.
For LED, the result is much more satisfying than with 8-bit dimming.
The arpschuino core has been updated with the addition of the "arpPCA9685" library for the spider board;
with also a source code for saving power in the examples of the wilulu.
For more information, do not hesitate to contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org .
February 27, 2018
arpschuino.fr is 3 years old!
A bigger cake this year because the team has grown, we are now 6.
Thanks to you, arpschuino is also a community of users more and more important, thank you all for your confidence.
February 4 2018
After our tutorial program an arpschuino, here is the continuation : program an arpsensor or a wilulu.
Comme l'arpschuino, toutes ces cartes sont reconnues dans le core arpschuino et bénéficient d'une programmation simplifiée.
Nous vous proposons aussi maintenant un programmateur ISP, parfaitement adapté à nos cartes : l'USBasp.
December 30 2017
Looking back on this year 2017.
In France, you are more and more users to trust us, thank you all, it encourages us enormously! Internationals users are also welcome!
We are now 5 in the team, everyone finds his place and we become more and more effective.
On the hardware side, 3 RF boards came this year: the arpsensorsRF, the arpRF and the wilulu.
New boards are in preparation, the spider board and its ultra fine diming, will arrive in January.
We also had great collaborations this year: with the Cirque Inextremiste (Exit),
the Surnatural Orchestra (Esquif),
Groupe Laps (Spider Circus)
and DCA, Philippe Découflé's company, (nouvelles pièces courtes,
currently at Chaillot theater).
We wish you a happy new year.
december 12 2017
Reprogramming the arpschuino becomes much simpler with the creation of the "arpschuino core".
All our programmable boards are now recognized by the Arduino IDE, all libraries and source codes are automatically imported.
Thanks to Anton Langhoff for his work !
The arpschuino programming tutorial has been fully reviewed.
We now have a USB>serial programmer perfectly suited to arpschuino and cheap.
A programmer for the arpsensors , arpsensorsRF and wilulu will be available soon.
november 5 2017
The arpRF connector is now equipped with a keying.
The transmitter could be damaged as a result of bad connections, so we decided to fix it !
Continue anyway to put the arpschuino² jumper in 3V position before connecting the arpRF and unplug the arpRF before reprogramming if you use a programmer in 5V.
The tutorial on programming is being redone and will be online soon.
october 20 2017
Announced for a long time, here is the wilulu
It is a small pocket dimmer, controlled by radio link from a computer or a light console and capable of dimming up to 8A.
Already used in show, they are used in Exit from Inextremiste circus
and Esquif from surnatural orchestra.
octobber 2 2017
A new revision of the arpschuino², with the addition of a reset pin on the I2C port.
Concretely this will allow to reset the arpschuino² remotely from the arpdress board, notably in the case of a boxing.
For arpdress board: new, more readable encoders.
The microcontroller is now directly soldered to the board and the arpdress board is now delivered in a small anti-static box
july 19 2017

A new PCB for the arpower :
The features do not change but the connectors are flat now, the fixing holes have been enlarged and the serigraphy have been improved.
the arpower's assembly guide have been revised for the occasion.
may 05 2016
Arpschuino's source codes have been revised:
They are available on the download page
The features do not change but the functions (for signal LED and adressing) are now in separate files.
This should improve the readability of source code and allow, for those who want to reprogram the arpschuino, to edit more easily.
I tried to comment to make it as comprehensible as possible but but do not hesitate to contact us for more information :
mars 26 2016
This is an XLR version of the arpschuino² :
