Analogue DSL Bandwidth meter

Got round to doing some hardware hacking again! :)

I put together an analogue DSL bandwidth meter display – it shows the current percentage of bandwidth (upstream/downstream) used:

That’s some ugly MDF board to hold the Particle Photon, two 3V voltage meters, and an LED which lights up if the data is stale (hasn’t been updated in >20s).  I soldered a little breadboard together with the sockets for the photon, cables out to the meters, and a resistor for the LED.

The components are:

Thanks Jeremy for the inspiration for this project! :)
