Given the unknowns developing a machine such as this, I’ve opted to build much of it in smaller functional blocks. This certainly won’t be a cost effective way to produce machines if we end up marketing it, due to the increased cost of parts. And assembling circuits on these generic prototype boards is quite time consuming. But it is just about ideal for this stage of development. I’m happy to say the DC Solenoid driver board is completed and working. It’s basically just 8 of the mosfet driver circuits wired on a single board. It is fairly simple but should be much more reliable than mechanical relays, and it’s one step closer.
