I'm new to the scene and I don't know where to start or terminology, so any advice or links are appreciated :)
What I need to build is a Magic Box™ that turns 120v AC into variable DC (0-15v) at 1 amp. The trick is that it needs to have 5 outputs, each with their own pots to vary voltage but only one output can be on at a time
So, kinda like a radio button I'd like each of the 5 outputs to have a momentary switch that, when pressed, switches the corresponding output to 0-15vdc at 1 amp and cuts power to the previous output. Like I said above, I'd need each output to have it's own voltage pot.
Finally, I'd need to have one LCD that shows how much voltage is going to whatever output is currently selected (± 0.05v). I'd prefer having 1 screen that switches with the output instead of 5 separate screens.
I'm not asking anyone to sketch this out for me! But if there are links to similar projects, I'd like to see them!
Unfortunately I'm not familiar enough with the terminology to know where to start, so if you could let me know what general parts I would need, it'd be very much appreciated!
