I am reasonably familiar with electronics and have built quite a few different things. I have never done any programming in any fashion.
Before I get head first into an Arduino UNO (gift from my grandson who thinks I am old fashioned) I have a couple questions on what they will or won't do.
One simple one is I have an IR detector that signals two 555 timers (one signal about 1 second in duration) and the individual 555's do different timing tasks. On is 5 seconds and the other is 90 seconds (monostable one shot). Will an Arduino do this also?
Another is two separate signals with an end of line resistor (for supervisory) that close in "alarm" and fire two mosfets - one each of N channel and P channel. Will an Arduino be capable of sensing a break in the line (loss of end of line resistor 2200 ohms) and be able to give both a "problem" signal and an "alarm" signal. I need it to do both.
NO, I do not want you to write any code for me - I just want to know if it will do this before I spend the time learning something totally new to me.
Thanks in advance for any advice or direction.
