An interesting way for microswitch testing
Pete Prodoehl needed a way to test microswitches that he’d be using for an exhibit, so he decided to build his own setup with a counter, 3D-printed “pusher” and an Arduino Uno.
When you’re testing the life span of a component made to work over and over, your testing components have to also be robust enough to handle the very gradual abuse.
Getting something to work once or even a times is neat, but getting it to function thousands of times for a test or otherwise takes a different way of thinking!
Here’s a video compilation of some of the testing from early on:
