I didn't know where to post this and this channel seemed to be the closest. I have absolutely no knowledge about Arduino, but I am interested to learn more.
So, I have refurbed a Walk, Don't Walk sign from Paris. At this stage, it switches on and off with both the Red and the Green men lighting up together. At the moment it is running off domestic supply on a 13amp 3 pin plug (UK) plug with a normal lamp switch, I thought it best to keep it simple.
It has LED's which are already fitted, they look fairly large so I would imagine that they are industrial grade ones. Also whilst testing it in the early stages I had it plugged in through an outdoor RCD as I didn't want to blow the house up. I am pleased to report the house and the street is still in one piece.
What I would like to do is fit a module/ unit/whatever that will enable it to cycle between the Red and Green Men to light up individually for random periods as if it was fitted to the street furniture originally.
I will try to post photos to show the sign and its interior and the current wiring set-up.
I went onto the (Electricians Forum) and the members there that I corresponded with were very helpful in suggesting the Arduino. So here I am, asking questions, keen to learn new things. I am generally not afraid to get down and dirty.
All replies are welcome.
