newbie project coin pusher

Hello

I planned to build a coin pusher.
It pointed me to the arduino to manage the various elements, hence my presence.
I do not know exactly what I need, as a model of arduino and various shields or otherwise.

Here are the specifications.
It must provide management:

  • The lights 12v, gyro car neon and
  • Coils (electro magnet) with a tilt
  • An incrementing counter via 3 switches with a large display digit character type (ability to display the number 100)
  • The sounds emitted from various MP3.

Thank you for your advice on the purchase of all the elements for the realization of this project, the links are welcome.

PS: I'm french

thanks

I planned to build a coin pusher.

A coin pusher? What is a coin pusher?

Is it one of those things you find in arcades?

It's that.

I do not know exactly what I need, as a model of arduino and various shields or otherwise.

Use a Uno, or if you feel that this could involve more outputs then a Mega might be worth it.

You need to work out how much current you need to drive your various components and then get a power supply that will deliver that and control circuits to drive them.

  • Coils (electro magnet) with a tilt

Not sure what you mean by tilt, is it the movement or detecting a tilt?

  • The lights 12v, gyro car neon

Any motor drive will allow you to control a 12V light, again what current. However what is 'neon' is it a neon light or is 'neon' just a trade name. Controlling a neon light is quite tricky because it involves high voltages.

I need to control three coils and detect a tilt

It's just a trade name, is a false neon filled with LED

When you say " motor drive " this relay it's good?

I would need this but in a slightly larger or a litle LCD, but it's for later.

A tilt of the whole thing? You can't use mercury switches any more which is a pity because they are good, but the stupid EU banned them. So you have to use ball tilt switches.

No I did not mean relays for control I meant something more like an FET.

For the tilt I thought to take a pinball.

Can give me a link the product to light, because I do not see and can you tell me why a relay is bad and what it can be used?

thank you

You can use a relay it is just that they are slow and noisy and so people use FETs now.

Sorry I can't understand your other questions.

Using a pinball machine style tilt sensor sounds plausible - after all, they're designed for the same purpose.

I would like to purchase equipment ready because I have very little expertise in electronics, can you give me links?
What is the easiest to use relay or mosfet?

To play sounds I plan to buy the rmp3 this is a good choice?

thank you

Hello

I'm searching a tutorial on the connections of the different arduino shields.

thank you

I'm searching a tutorial on the connections of the different arduino shields.

The design of a shield means that it only fits one way. You hardly need a tutorial to figure that out.

If you are looking for which shields use which pins, a tutorial isn't going to help either. Plenty of helpful people here. Ask about the particular shields you are interested in.

There are no shields specifically made for your purpose, though.

Hello
If people are willing to help me I would be very happy.
Not having the skills, I do not want to get in this embodiment without support.
I plan to buy:

an arduino mega
rmp3 a shield to store and manage sounds

To manage the light I was told about "FETs" Is there such thing as plug and play or I have to make?

To manage the coils pinball what can I use?

Thank you for the links if possible.

If you can make an FET, I don't think you'd be asking this question.

To manage what coils? What kind of management do they need?

A FET is an electronic component. You wire them up to control things like motors, solenoids and lights.

However as you are such a beginner I would suggest that you take a month or two out playing with the arduino, getting to know it and getting to know how to connect electronic stuff. Too many beginners go over board on a project that is too big and they don't cope and end up abandoning it. Without basic knowledge you will struggle to understand any advice that is given you and that will just frustrate both you and the advice giver.

For coils I need just a simple power on / off but a higher voltage than 5V

This coil, it is used to close a trape.

This video is the result

About MOSFET , I need one for each using type or one for each tension?
For example two lights and two coils on the same mosfet on 12V?

thanks

A MOSFET is an electric switch, that can be controlled by the Arduino. The Arduino can turn the switch on or off. How many you need depends on how many independent switches you need. You could light up Paris with one MOSFET, if you didn't need to turn lights on or off independently.

For coils I need just a simple power on / off but a higher voltage than 5V

AND also a higher current.

Yes that is what a FET will do for you.
An IRLB8748 is a good logic level FET to use.

I hesitate to replace the coils of stepper motors.
Which will be the easiest to implement?
This engine would do combined with a movement of the piston. Search, Electronic & Electronics Components Depot United States
