In this example we configure a motorized drop target bank which can move up and down with two position switches.
switches: s_position_up: number: s_position_down: number: digital_outputs: c_motor_run: number: type: driver motors: motorized_drop_target_bank: motor_left_output: c_motor_run position_switches: !!omap - up: s_position_up - down: s_position_down reset_position: down go_to_position: go_up: up go_down: down
The motor can run continuously and drives a camshaft which moves the bank up and down. MPF will figure the position using two position switches s_position_up and s_position_down. To enable the motor we use a digitial_output c_motor_run which maps to a driver. On reset the bank moves down and can afterwards be commanded using the events go_up and go_down.
The following is an example to drive the slimer in Stern Ghostbusters:
switches: s_slimer_home: number: 8-1 s_slimer_away: number: 8-2 digital_outputs: c_slimer_motor_forward: number: 8-3 type: light c_slimer_motor_backward: number: 8-4 type: light motors: ghostbusters_slimer: motor_left_output: c_slimer_motor_forward motor_right_output: c_slimer_motor_backward position_switches: !!omap - home: s_slimer_home - away: s_slimer_away reset_position: home go_to_position: slimer_home: home slimer_away: away
The slimer motor can move in two directions using two digital_outputs c_slimer_motor_forward and c_slimer_motor_backward which map to lights in Spike. The switches s_slimer_home and s_slimer_away are used by to determine the current position. To command the slimer use the events slimer_home or slimer_away.
