I’m a noob to this forum and a noob to electronics as well so I will be asking lots of questions.
My first arduino project is creating an electronic trigger for an air rifle using a pull solenoid. The solenoid will be replacing a mechanical trigger mechanism that is simply a rod that connects a trigger to a lever. The solenoid will be attached to the mechanical lever which when pulled will allow the release of high pressure air into the barrel. The electronic trigger mechanism will be replacing a rod that attached to the trigger which when pulled actuates the lever. Instead of a rod connecting the trigger to the lever, when the trigger is pulled it will press upon a push button which will send a signal to the solenoid to pull a lever, releasing a blast of air.
*Trigger= conventional trigger found on an air rifle
So far I have purchased the solenoid, nano arduino, relay, diode, lithium batteries, battery holder, and breadboards.
I want to know exactly what do I need to wire everything. And how to wire it properly.
Solenoid specs are:
Batteries are 14500, 3.7v, 800mah Li-ion
Here’s a list of parts I bought so far:
