I have a Beacon Bar that has 5 modes.They are:- 1. Fast rotate 2. Slow Rotate 3. flash mode 1 4. flash mode 2 5. Off.
There are 3 leads going into the Bar, Power, Ground and Control. The instructions state that the modes can be controlled via RC.
Can I achieve the same result with an Arduino?
Assuming the RC unit will send a signal via the control cable (I have no experience of RC) to change the mode of the beacon bar, could an Arudino do the same thing hard wired.
I have got the beacon working via the Arduino (power to 5v, Ground to Grd) I have attached the control lead to socket 11 (with the PWM curly bit). Turning this socket on and off (HIGH and LOW) turns the Beacon off when LOW but does not change the mode.
Any advice would be welcome. Thank you.
