Yet more reverse engineered split-flap displays…

Today yet another split-flap display project hit the blogs, Stephen Brown (aka BozNZ) worked with his client Indevin who recently bought 20 old surplus Solari flip units and wanted to get them working. Stephen got to work over three days reverse engineering the existing circuitry and creating a multi-drop interface board for the multi-pin connector on the back of the units, and then daisy chaining ribbon cable from unit to unit he placed a master controller on one end and had a basic ethernet setup.

It’s heartening to see that a more experienced and knowledgeable engineer is doing the same kind of things with his work as those that I have landed on.
