My name is Mehdi , I am from Algeria and I am working on an old 90s Split Flap Display
For those of you who don’t know what is a Split flap display please check this video :
My modules are so similar to the the system showed here :
the only difference is ; number of modules and the voltage of motors
I have 5 modules in one Display ,13 Displays …so i have 65 modules in total
My split flop displays are from Bodet ( a French company ) with 48VAC synchronous motors and 12VDC for the circuit, a I have 16-pin output from the motor controller !
I contacted Bodet to get the schematics of the motor controler … still waiting.
i am kind of lost , i don’t know if i have to change the motors or make some reverse engineering and control my modules in serial I2C like this Split-flap Display - DIY driver circuit - YouTube
the problem is that i am no good at reverse engineering
I attached a picture of what pieces found inside on module and an illustration of what ia m planning to do !
what do you suggest ?
I know it’s a lot to ask but I hope you’ll understand that I’m so enthusiastic to see the result of this project.
Thanks alot for making this platform
