You are basically right, it is a bit complicated. For each motor I have another two relays (with more capacity), which are switched on and of by each two arduino relays.
I am using two relay cards because i also built in a light relay and a relay for a bell. And 1 relay already broke because i used it with 48 instead of max 30 volts. So now i have enough relays left and do not have to replace one. :)I run the motors with 48V.
yes, it definitely is! Now, it also has Plexi glas.
Just follow the steps of my first claw machine project, it is basically very easy to built.
There are a lot of traders, eg:http://bit.do/gantry1, http://bit.do/gantrykit, i got my gantry from a german trader for arcade parts.
The Housing (wood etc.) and the screws was approx. 40 €,the Technic Stuff like the Arduino etc. about 100 € + the Gantry Assembly 100 €... So all in all the budget was about 250 € or more.
thank you very much, I'm looking forward to seeing your own claw machine soon :)
Thats really awesome!
