I am using a part off an electronics set I got a long time ago. It is off a electronic set called
snap circuits rover deluxe
Its a disc launcher and I have wired it to how it seems to want to be wired:
The idea is that these circles you can see on the disc launcher are button tops and connect to other with other buttons just like buttons on a coat and how the pop together. I have some special wires that allow these button tops to be connected to arduino wires (which are what I am using). In terms of a power supply I have connected a 9V power supply (not 9V transistor battery) and I have connected the + wire to the + button on the disc launcher and the same with the - wire being connected to the - button on the disc launcher. The only confusions that I now have are:
- What is the CONT button potentially used for?
- What is the EXT potentially used for? I just tried guessing by putting the 9V power supply into the CONT and EXT buttons by using a breadboard, nothing happened from this, and I was also thinking during this where is the ground for the CONT and EXT pins.
If this will not simply work then, I was wondering does anyone know where I can buy an arduino plastic missile launcher
