I'm trying to find out how to control 6 solenoid valves from a raspberry pi. Preferably i would like the pi to be linked to a computer where somehow i can make programs which open a certain sequence of solenoid valves.
The application for this is a drinks machine, there will be 6 tubes which will hold the liquids and different drinks will have a different sequence of valves opening and closing. The user will choose which drink they want and it will then run the program for that particular drink...
Is this possible and if so how, i am basic on raspberry pi and have little coding and electronics experience.
