This documentation is for an unreleased version of MPF!

This is the developer documentation for MPF 0.51, which is the “dev” (next) release of MPF that is a work-in-progress. Use the “Read the Docs” link in the lower left corner to view the developer docs for the version of MPF you’re using.

self.machine.hardware_platforms[‘p_roc’]

class mpf.platforms.p_roc.PRocHardwarePlatform(machine)

Bases: mpf.platforms.p_roc_common.PROCBasePlatform, mpf.core.platform.DmdPlatform, mpf.core.platform.SegmentDisplayPlatform

Platform class for the P-ROC hardware controller.

Parameters:machine – The MachineController instance.
machine

The MachineController instance.

Accessing the p_roc platform via code

Hardware platforms are stored in the self.machine.hardware_platforms dictionary, so the p_roc platform is available via self.machine.hardware_platforms['p_roc'].

Methods & Attributes

The p_roc platform has the following methods & attributes available. Note that methods & attributes inherited from base classes are not included here.

configure_dmd()

Configure a hardware DMD connected to a classic P-ROC.

configure_driver(config: mpf.core.platform.DriverConfig, number: str, platform_settings: dict)

Create a P-ROC driver.

Typically drivers are coils or flashers, but for the P-ROC this is also used for matrix-based lights.

Parameters:config – Dictionary of settings for the driver.
Returns:A reference to the PROCDriver object which is the actual object you can use to pulse(), patter(), enable(), etc.
configure_segment_display(number: str) → mpf.platforms.interfaces.segment_display_platform_interface.SegmentDisplayPlatformInterface

Configure display.

configure_switch(number: str, config: mpf.core.platform.SwitchConfig, platform_config: dict)

Configure a P-ROC switch.

Parameters:
  • number – String number of the switch to configure.
  • config – SwitchConfig settings.

Returns: A configured switch object.

get_hw_switch_states()

Read in and set the initial switch state.

The P-ROC uses the following values for hw switch states: 1 - closed (debounced) 2 - open (debounced) 3 - closed (not debounced) 4 - open (not debounced)

get_info_string()

Dump infos about boards.

tick()

Check the P-ROC for any events (switch state changes or notification that a DMD frame was updated).

Also tickles the watchdog and flushes any queued commands to the P-ROC.
