PLC controlled spud-gun

How much of an automation geek are you?

Well think Iíve reached a newÖ well either low or high depending on your point of view. My brother has a Sumer Solstice party every year on some property in Eastern Washington and his brother in-law usually builds some sort of tool of destruction. For the last couple of years he has build a spud-gun and I decided this year Iíd take a crake at it. Mattís difficulty has been lighting off the gun (none of this whimpy air gun stuff). By the time he re-threads the breach and then gets the ignition to work the air-fuel mixture has usually thinned out and it wonít fire. So basically Iíve seen all of the things heís struggled with and came up with a fix. Plus, of course I had to add a PLC to the mix. All Iíll say right now is that itís part of the ignition system. Once Iíve shot the thing off at the party Iíll post some pics and videos of what I did. Massive overkill but itís all about building it and who else can say that they have a PLC controlled spud gun?
The video is the cam-lock breach (goes on and off very fast) with the ignition electrodes built in.
Go Hawks!!!
