ARC PRO+ is it time for a fully loaded version?
#11

The preliminary spec I am working towards is:

1/ an expansion board which fits into the centre zone of the track section of the ARC PRO and which is powered directly from the ARC PRO.
2/ an expansion board which will communicate directly with the lane1/lane2 sensors.
3/ an the expansion board which will also communicate directly with additional lane3/lane4 sensors.
4/ an expansion board which will have up to eight opto-isolated sensor inputs for pit-lane entry/exit sensors and zone sensors.
5/ an expansion board which will have up to two opto-isolated uart comms interfaces for gantry lighting and other ancillary function control.
6/ an expansion board which will have a high speed WiFi comms interface for configuration setup and direct wireless communications with race management software - either running on a pc or smart device.

So that’s the plan... if it can be achieved... this should represent a useful hobbyist extension of the already amazing ARC PRO.

I have been busy building the additional sensors needed to implement this extension of the system.

Two of the new sensor boards designed and assembled over the past few weeks and which are designed to integrate with above approach.
