The big space control

Goals

  • Lights can be switched using a web interface and regular light switches.
  • Roofs can be opened and closed.
  • Redundant: if the Arduino fails, the light switches remain working.

Hardware

What we have available

  • A little under 100 industrial relays (Piet)
  • Industrial electricity cabinet (Piet)
  • Diodes and NPN heavy-duty switching transistors. (Koen)

Thanks to all who have contributed hardware!

What we need

  • More electrical cable

Schematic

The schematic to control just one lamp.

Color Codes

Lesson learned: adding new colors on the fly will result in chaos:

Software

The software is identical to the one in the small Spacecontrol.
