I am trying to build a simple model where I used 4-6 electromagnets to move an object. I need to be able to turn the electromagnets on and off individually. My understanding is that I can use the Grove Electromagnet coupled with an Arduino board to accomplish this. However, I still have the following doubts:
- Is there a specific Arduino board I need to use? I have the Sparkfun Redboard - does it have the right header on it?
- How many of the control boards will I need if I want to control 6 electromagnets? Or am I better off getting the Seeeduino Lotus or the Seeeduino Light board, which appears to have 6 PWM digital ports.
Any other suggestion are highly welcome.
