Hi all, we are new to the Arduino World and just purchased a starter kit on Amazon.
We are trying to run some electronics test on our race car. Basically we want to test the cluster/speedometer functionality by sending pulses to it. After doing some research, we noticed folks talking about using Arduino to run tests but there wasn't too much info.
Our use case: Send x amount of 12v pulses to our test cluster to simulate speed and make the needle move. This signal is to simulate the differential speed sensor, which sends a 12v signal to the cluster.
What's known: Cluster expects a 12v pulse; every 9 pulses equals 1 wheel revolution.
Some additional info, from research, sending these pulses at 330 hz would simulate 150mph on the cluster. Also read that this can be accomplished with a variable oscillator.
Is it possible to send 12v pulses?
How would that be programmed?
Any examples of how I could so something like this?
Thanks for the help!
