I'm new to the forum, new to the Arduino but I want to take a long shot and try if I can solve one problem through using Arduino.
I understand if many of you don't have patience to help someone who yet doesn't understand anything of Arduino world but I'm hoping someone will be able to help me through.
Situation is that I have a certain machine that is controlled by 24v DC signal by using foot pedal. Instead of signal being defined simply by pushing the pedal I would need to be able to control the signal more presicely controlling the pulse lenght that goes through as well as the pattern of the pulse as the signal is continous.
Possible reguirements would be for instance: - as the pedal is pressed once we then have one pulse with a lenght that may vary. In this case the signal going through should be possible to be determined to a even lenght no matter how inconstant the pedal operation is. The lenght should be adjustable up from few milliseconds. - other scenario could be that as the pedal is hold down continously the signal would be cut into a pattern of repeated pulse where pulse lenght and the gap between pulses would be adjustable. - third scenario could be that as we get in a signal of a random lenght we could determine how many pulses is output and with what lenght and sequence starting how soon after the initial pulse.
What I would need is advice on what components to purchase for this and how to actually put it all together.
Thumps up if someone can help me.
