Title: Model Railway Turntable
Post by Geordie on Dec 16th, 2014 at 1:20pm
Hi
I'm a newbie to Arduino.
Does anyone have experience of programming an Arduino Uno to control & operate a model railway turntable.
Alternatively can anyone point me in the right direction for suitable code
Regards

Hi,

Without giving too much thought I think hooking up a stepper motor (or a servo that can continuously turn 360 degrees) would be first step.

That's pretty easy to do with various Arduino libraries.

There are a few videos on youtube if you search for: Model Railway Turntable Arduino

One video looks interesting and it food for thought. A bit more complex that you might need initially.

A few push buttons and a servo/stepper would give you a simpler turn table controller. As I said a servo instead of a stepper might be easier to hook up. The arduino servo library wiki is here http://arduino.cc/en/reference/servo
