Hello, My first post. I've read a lot about arduino but still have some doubt.
What I'm trying to do is cheapest possible solution for the following system:
4 Analog Input (4-20mA), or 0-10 Volt. 10 Digital Inputs. 16 Digital Outputs that can drive 3A solenoids,Contactors, maybe through mechanical relays.
Microprocessor will do the neccessary calculation from Analog and digital inputs and turn on/off certain outputs.
I'm doing this type of control with PLC, and whant to emulate the same functionality with Arduino.
Or maybe Arduino is not the correct choice.
I saw A clip about ATtiny chip that was programmed with arduino, and then was able to blink a led.
My project is slow moving Hydraulic cylinders, round 2cm/Second.
The goal is to achieve lowest cost possible.
Thank you for reading.
