I'm brand new to Arduino and looking to make a specific sort of timer-based controller to push a physical button at specific times of day. Touch screen will be a cool way to set it and get feedback :)
At a glance, it seems like my shopping list is this:
- Servo SG90
- MB102 Breadboard power supply
- MEGA 2560 + 3.2inch TFT LCD
- DS3231 Precision RTC Module
- Breadboard Jumper wires
I'm also 3d printing a thing to use the servos to drive the shaft which pushes the button... we can ignore that part for now.
Here's my questions:
- What kind of wire do I get to extend from the breadboard to the servo(s) so that they can sit at a distance away from it? Preferably something from that same site (I'm in Israel)
- Does the MB102 power both the Arduino and the servos?
- If so - is it safe to just slap everything on the breadboard, or should the servers be connected to the MB102 from the pins somehow (not sure if it even does that...)
- If not - am I correct that I'd wire the servos through the breadboard, and then have some other power supply like this 9V converter and keep the arduino totally separate?
