Hi I am having problems with my project. Every thing is working, the RFID reader, not the maglock. If I directly hook up the maglock to 12V, it works. If I hook it into to circuit CORRECTLY it will not turn off so i can open my door, it stays on.
Arduino UNO R3
N-Channel Mosfet IRFZ44N Transistor
Seco-Larm Electromagnetic Lock 80 Lbs
Parallax RFID Reader
3 LEDS 2 Green 1 Red
I have attached the Arduino file. The Master code i have set to: 0000000000 just for this but on my real one it is the actual card, I have changed nothing else.
I dont know to much on the Arduino language but everything should be working and the open led turns on so i know the card is reading.
Please help I really want to get this working!
If You need to know any info about this u can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or reply to this post
