Phototropic Not So Dummy Opamp Walker with reverse
- At least opamps give you a wider choice of supply voltage and an opportunity
to interface directly with higher supply voltage circuits like automotive
and alarm systems.
Anyway here is the Quadrature Opamp walker with phototropic and reverser
subsystems, the latter using some 74AC240 inverters (which limits the supply
choice) Four of the remaining 74AC240 inverters could be used as motor
drivers for the 6V Servo motors. The motors are driven with position
feedback so sync reversing is not needed.
All as yet untested but will probably work fine.
