Using Coil Drivers as Lights

Related Config File Sections:

Sometimes you will find lights on a (coil) driver. There are various reasons for this and MPF supports it. You can either use coil_player: to control those lights but it will be different from normal lights (and light shows). Alternatively, you can map the coils to a light (recommended). To map a coil as light you can use the following config:

    number: 42                 # number depends on your platform
    allow_enable: true        # this will allow 100% enable without pwm
    number: your_light_coil     # map this light to a driver
    platform: drivers

This is sometimes done for GIs and Flashers.
