in the last month i worked on a solari display system (and alot of reverse engineering) please check the videos bellow to know more about this adventure :
( please don’t follow the connection to the motor drivers i just connected them randomly , and i didn’t connect V+ and GND just to make the schematics understandable , notice that i made some changes in the position of wires "NOT LIKE THE SCHEMATIC OF THE VIDEO) , and the program to show position 1 or position 2 attached below) :
you will find an arduino controling 5 drivers ( 5 drivers = one display)
in the second shematic “5DISPLAYS”
the problem that i am facing now is a way to remote control Arduinos over 40 meters
you can see that i have and underground cable made of 6 wires connected in parallel to displays (around 40 meters in total ), I know that i can’t make a usb cable , i was thinking about usb Extenders , can i connect all the arduinos in a parallel cable and then connect them to PC using addressing technique ?
i am also thinking of using ESP8266 , or an Arduino Wifi Sheild ?
you have any propositions ?
I got a lot of help from rockstar members of Arduino forum , i would like thanks all of you , you guys are the best !
