I'm a complete newbie to arduino. I came across this as I have been researching a fit microprcessor that can control an automated bottle capper I'm working on.
Now the mechanics side is simple. Where I need help is controlling it.
So this is what I need to do. I have a round disc with a cut out every 45 degrees to slide a bottle around to the position of my capper.
First thing that needs to be done is the round disc needs to continuously rotate 45 degrees then pause for a set time, say 3 seconds then repeat over and over obviously using a stepper motor.
As soon as the disc stops I need to activate a pneumatic solenoid valve to open a pneumatic actuator after a set time say 2 seconds a second solenoid is activated to close the actuator.
So disc rotates 45 degrees then pause, solenoid opens actuator, second solenoid closes actuator, disc rotates 45 degrees and repeat.
If anyone can point me in the direction of what I will need to accomplish this task it would be very much appreciated.
Will the coding for this be hard for a beginner? The process to me sounds simple so I'm hoping there is an easy way of achieving it.
