Coil player

The coil player is a config player that’s used pulse, enable, or disable coils and drivers.

This is an example:

coil_player:
   some_event: coil_1
   some_other_event:
      coil_2:
         action: enable
         hold_power: .5
This example is tested to be valid MPF config. However, it is not integration tested.
coil_player:
   some_event: coil_1
   some_other_event:
      coil_2:
         action: enable
         hold_power: .5

In the example above, when the event called some_event is posted, coil_1 will pulse. When the event some_other_event is posted, coil_2 will enable (be held on) at power level 4.

Note that the some_event: coil_1 is entered in a different way than the some_other_event:. The first one has a simple key/value pair, whereas the second has a complete nested sub-configuration.

The first example shows the “express” config, while the second shows the full config. (What’s an “express config?” Details here.

The coil player’s express config is the “pulse” action.

Example coil player from a show:

##! show: test
- time: 0
  coils:
    coil1: pulse
This example is tested to be valid MPF config. However, it is not integration tested.
##! show: test
- time: 0
  coils:
    coil1: pulse
