Stock Tank Filler – Project to control the water level in a stock tank for livestock (horses)

My Project
From the new Adafruit Show and tell feature in Circuit Playground!

Hi Adafruit!

Here’s something I made that I wanted to share…a battery-powered controller to monitor the water level of a livestock tank and turn on/off an irrigation valve using a DC latching solenoid, an H-Bridge driver, and an MSP430 micro controller. More project details including links to schematic, design files, and software are at www.zephyr-labs.com

Thank you,
Maddox
