    Did you find a solution? I finished my secon machine and implemented a new routine that checks for the time each solenoid pin is HIGH. If any solendoid pin is HIGH for more than 2 seconds, all pins are set to LOW and the program shuts down to prevent any new activation. Works pretty good so far :)
    Did you have success with your project?

    Hi,
    Well, to be honest, I had one of the bumper switches stuck once and the best solution was to be fast with the main power button...
    The solution for this problem is one of the things on my "to do" list for the new pinball machine I'm currently working on. I've got a few ideas and I will check which one is the most feasible in terms of processor time since you can't afford too many delay commands. I also bought a couple of blow fuses which should also work in preventing a coil drawing too much. With those I will have to measure the draw of the individual coils to get the right size for the fuse.
    I'm sorry I don't have a solution already, my pinball projects have been delayed recently but I'm hopefull that I can start working on them again during august.
    If you find a solution please post it, I'd be happy to implement it.

    Kind regards

    Could you show me a picture of your wiring? The only thing the 2 solenoids should have in common is the + side of you board, the Mosfet source (pin3) of all Mosfets should be connected to the common - and the Mosfet drain (pin2) to different pins on the arduino and to - via the 10k resistor. So in theory no Mosfet should be activated unless you open the respective Mosfet with the Arduino.
