Drive 8 digits retro train station split-flaps
posted January 4 2011 20:22.56 by Giorgos Lazaridis




You have certenly seen before such digits, maybe in train stations or airports. Here is a DIY controller for them, built with PIC microcontrollers. Marcus from jave made this controller. It carries 8 digits, and each one has its own PIC (PIC12F683). The motor is then driven through an optocoupler (MOC3023 is used). You can find more info here.
