Robojax Touch Counter V2 using LCD1602-I2C display Robojax.com

Robojax Touch Counter V2 (LCD1602-I2C)

This Arduino code make simple touch counter. Every time touch module TTP223/TTP223B is touched, the counter number increases and displays on the LCD1602-I2C display and on serial monitor in Arduino by pressing Ctrl+Shift+M on your PC. There is a reset button which you can reset the counting at any time.

TTP223 or TTP223B module with a single push button is used to make this counter. Any Arduino boards can be used.

 //*
 * This is Arduino touch counter V2 using TTP223/TTP223B and LCD1602-I2C
 * this program will funciton as counter. Every time the touch module is touch
 * the counter increments +1 to the counter. The count number is displayed on LCD1602 display
 * We have got a reset button to restart the counting from zero.
 * 
 * Watch video instruciton for this video:https://youtu.be/5A9jPD5nUCw
