CFE-coils-1: Driver must have a number
Related Config File Sections:
This error occurs when MPF loads a coil which is has an empty number or misses a number entry. Unfortunately, hardware needs a switch number to address your coil and it cannot continue without a number.
This is how a coil should look:
coils: your_coil: number: 1
The actual number depends on your hardware platform. See the How to configure "number:" settings guide for details.
Sometimes you did not wire up a coil but you know that you will need it
later. This is a problem for your physical hardware controller but you
can tell MPF to use the
virtual hardware platform for one particular
coils: your_virtual_coil: number: platform: virtual
In this case the number can be empty.
