iPad Controlled Model Railway Turntable

Posted on Updated on

So following on from the creation of the model railway I wanted to make it as easy as possible to use. I already hooked an Arduino up to the board and always had a fascination with turntables. I wanted everything push button and with a modern twist so I added an Ethernet shield to the Arduino, threw a sketch together on the Ardunio to control a servo at different angles. I couldn’t find anyone else who had tried this simple approach to moving a turntable, it seemed to be a mix of stepper motors and infrared control – this was far far easier and quite reliable too.Image
