    Hi, everyone, I have a manual filling machine, I'll want help to develop a semi automatic circuit using a solenoid valves, I want to set the timing the valve will be open and the circuit has to start the 6 solenoid and stop. Can some one help me I'll buy the circuit if some one it's interesting please send me a email

    Would you be comfortable programming a small microcontroller?
    For example an arduino with a suitable relay shield. The arduino would do all teh control (timing, sequences etc.) whereas the relays would be used to control your valves which very likely wil require more power than the microcontroller alone can deliver.

    Yes, but the problem is I have no experience with electronic. But if you can help me to do it step by step, I'll give a try

    Here's an example for a 4 relay shield. This should be easily expandable to a 6 relay shield.
    Search 'arduino getting started' and find lots of tutorials.

    You'll neeed:
    1. An arduino, the relay shield, a power supply and a case
    2. A PC and the arduino IDE (programming environment)
    3. patience
    4. patience

    You're welcome. Come back when you have specific question. We also have a microcontroller section on our forum.
