So I'm working on a project that will include a proportional valve and a digital pressure gauge that also feeds a 4-20mA signal for a data feed.
Here's the big caveat, I'm no programmer. I understand how all this works, and I can hack together a bunch of code that may or may not work - so I'm looking for some help or references to work with me (message me if so).
The proportional valve comes with a controller that accepts a 0-5v signal. I plan to hook that up the Arduino an a potentiometer to control the valve. For the digital pressure gauge, I'm not quite sure on this. It seems there are a few different methods, not sure the best option. I did see this article which uses I2C and a few additional pieces of hardware. Both of these need to work well, so I'm fine spending a bit of cash to buy the right hardware.
In addition to those two pieces of hardware, I'd like to get an OLED display to give me a readout from the pressure gauge, and some sort of data from the potentiometer. Not sure what can I data can be output other than PWM data so I'll need to figure that out - maybe analog input?
Here is a list of the hardware I have coming:
What suggestions might one have for Pots and OLED?
Coding is the part that scares me at the moment...
