Warning

Please ensure that you have established common ground between logic and coil power before turning on high voltage on your coils (especially on homebrew machines). Ignoring this might lock on your coils, overheat them, burn down your house or kill you. We are serious, floating grounds are dangerous. If you are not an professional electrician read the guide about voltages and power.

Configure drivers according to the manual of your machine. LISY does not support any hold_power or pulse_power other than 1.0. So the coil will always enable with full power (which is fine in older machines and should not break things). However, you can still choose the pulse length using pulse_ms.

coils:
   c_some_coil:
      number: 04
      default_pulse_ms: 10
      allow_enable: true
This example is tested to be valid MPF config. However, it is not integration tested.

In some Gottlieb machines coils were connected to the lights bank. To address those you have to add 100 to their number from the manual. For instance, to address a coil which is connected to the light output 05 use coil 105:

coils:
   c_coil_on_light_bank:
      number: 107
      default_pulse_ms: 10
This example is tested to be valid MPF config. However, it is not integration tested.
