So for an outreach event, we are modifying a trashcan to open with a pair of pneumatic cylinders. We have everything plumbed but we have absolutely no idea how to wire anything. We’ve used pneumatics before on the robot but we used a pcm which makes everything really easy. For our outreach event, we are not using a pcm and are controlling everything via an arduoino. The reason we are not using a pcm is because we don’t think a pcm can work with an arduino.
So, can you connect a pcm to an arudino, and if so how would the programming aspect work?
If we don’t use a pcm, how do we wire the pressure switch with the compressor so the compressor turns off at the right pressure?
