Then extend your program so you can control the actuator using messages sent from the Serial Monitor.
I'm trying to visualize how you can tell percentage in or out with a reed switch, which is surely more likely to be a limit switch? Unless you can rig lots of switches and or lots of magnets to indicate a grainy position?Do you have the actuator? Perhaps we should hear about it: how it gets controlled, how it gets powered, etc etc
Please Help.Hello everyone, I'm joni from Indonesia.Please help, how to control and display the precentage opening of linier actuator (with magnetic reed sensor built in) by android phone through wifi. I have bought Arduino Mega 2560 and wifi modul esp8266. Code and skematic and <a href="http://sensepsychology.com">here</a>. Please help, or anybody who has the same problem please share.
Yes to count rotation, I think it can represent the percentage of the stroke. Is it possible to arduino recognise which direction the actuator gear rotate by only one reed sensor?
