My name is Cristian nd i'm new to the Arduino world. i've made some small LED, Switches and Servo projects with my Arduino UNO board.
I'm looking to make a labeling machine project using the input from an PNP/NPN output sensor.
Components used :
Micro-switch(to start the labeling cycle), Label sensor , wich is 12-24Vcc , and it it commands a relay witch comands the main drive motor (wich is a motor with brake function)
The description of the machine functioning:
The machine is powered on, and it starts the program, but does not start the motor(relay).
the switch is pressed, then the Arduino sends a signal to the relay, and keeps it on (motor is started) until the next singnal (detection of gap between the labels) , wich stops the cicle. and then waits for the switch to be pressed.
Any ideas/recomandation to study for doing this project ?
Please be patient, I am willing to learn!
Thank you ,
