Earlier this week the crowdfunding campaign for ANAVI Fume Extractor at Crowd Supply ended successfully! 83 backers from 16 countries all around the world ordered kits. With their generous help ANAVI Fume Extractor will go from prototype to mass-manufactured do-it-yourself kit for makers.
We have already sourced most of the mechanical parts for the kits, so we proceed with manufacturing of the printed circuit boards in a small local factory in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. This is a long and time-consuming process. . The PCBs are expected by the end of July. After that the local factory has a scheduled summer vacation in weeks 32 and 33 so the assembly is planned for the end of August, and it will be done on several batches.
Each ANAVI Fume Extractor kit will be flashed with the default open source firmware, packaged carefully and provided to the Crowd Supply team. They will ship the kits to their owners. The estimated shipping date remains Oct 29, 2020.
The whole world is gong through difficult times right now. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak the local factory is working with reduced capacity, so we will keep backers updated with the progress. So far everything is OK. Fingers crossed we will be able to carry on at the same pace.
To avoid any risks for backers, we have an agreement with Crowd Supply that they will keep all funds until ANAVI Technology Ltd provides them the kits. This way in the unexpected case of a complete inability to deliver, Crowd Supply will offer backers full refunds.
ANAVI Fume Extractor is a smart, open source, solder smoke absorber. It is powered by ESP8266 with WiFi, 80 mm fan and supports various peripherals: mini OLED display, MQ-135 analog gas sensor for air quality, sensors for temperature, humidity, barometric pressure and light. The filters are replaceable.
Furthermore out the box the open source firmware of ANAVI Fume Extractor works with the popular IoT platform Home Assistant over the protocol MQTT. This means you can gather sensor data and control the fume extractor remotely using your smartphone, tablet or personal computer!
After more than 10 months of development we launched a crowd funding campaign at Crowd Supply! We are ready for manufacturing in Plovdiv, Bulgaria and now we need your support. We hope you’ll jump in and help us bring this entirely open source project to life!
ANAVI Fume Extractor is an entirely open source smart solder smoke absorber certified by the Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA) with UID BG000060. ANAVI Fume Extractor is powered by a Wi-Fi development board with ESP8266, 80mm fan and a replaceable carbon filter. It has a dedicated slots for a mini OLED I²C display and MQ-135 gas sensor module as well as slots up to 3 additional I²C sensor modules. Furthermore, there are UART pins for easy flashing of custom software and an extra GPIO for connecting external peripherals.
ANAVI Miracle Controller is an ESP8266-powered Wi-Fi dev board to control two 5 V or two 12 V addressable (digital) LED strips like WS2812B, WS2812, WS2811, etc. Furthermore, mini OLED display and up to 3 I2C sensors can be attached. It has been certified by the Open Source Hardware Association.
We have already started manufacturing. The first and second batches of boards are ready. Right now we are testing and packaging them. The estimated shipping date remains the same – Mar 30, 2020. In the meantime you can still place pre-orders at the same prices. Crowd Supply will take care of the shipping for all orders placed during the crowdfunding campaign and pre-orders.
ANAVI Miracle Controller is an open source hardware development board for simultaneously managing a couple of 5V or 12V addressable (digital) LED strips. Furthermore you can attach to it mini OLED display and up to 3 I2C sensor modules. The default firmware is available as an Arduino sketch at GitHub. Out of the box it is compatible with the popular open source automation software Home Assistant over the machine-to-machine protocol MQTT.
ANAVI Miracle Controller is an open source hardware Wi-Fi development board powered by the ESP8266 and designed to control two 5 V or 12 V addressable LED strips simultaneously.
ANAVI Miracle Controller supports popular addressable LEDs including Neopixel, WS2811, WS2812B, TM1809, etc. It also has a dedicated slot for a mini OLED I²C display and slots for up to three additional I²C sensor modules. The default firmware is available at GitHub as an Arduino sketch implementing Home Assistant MQTT Light component.
Back in 2018 we created ANAVI Light Controller for low-cost 12V RGB LED strips. Inspired by a lot of people asking for open source hardware dev board for addressable LEDs strips we created ANAVI Miracle Controller.
