    UPDATED:
    I have deleted the old topic and made this new one because of the update that added the airlock controler.

    please dont judge me of the bad quality because i did not had much time to do all the picture and stuffs.

    1_ you will need all stuff i have in my hotbar, (+ 1 lever, i forgot to put it in)

    2_ Take your airlock/controller, and build it like how i did. after that right click the airlock controller and enable "Opens on Redstone Signal".

    2013-11-15_22.23.58.png

    3_ Test if the airlock is working: (With a redstone signal)

    4_ After that, start making a 2x7 platform right next of it.

    2013-11-15_22.25.46.png

    5_ Make another airlock and do the same as you did in step 2, put on:"Opens on Redstone Signal".

    2013-11-15_22.31.36.png

    6_ Test the other one out (Also with redstone signal)

    2013-11-15_22.31.48.png

    7_ Take you lever and do what i do..

    2013-11-15_22.33.32.png

    8_ take your redstone and do what i do..

    2013-11-15_22.33.56.png
    2013-11-15_22.34.13.png



    AND NOW: TEST IF IT WORKS!!

    It's good that you updated this to be accurate with the controllers. One thing though. Since the air lock controllers have the "Invert Selection" option you should be able to have one air lock set to be inverted and the other not inverted. Then you could build this without the redstone torch (inverter) and the block it's mounted to making it more compact.

    Also the repeaters are not needed to send the redstone signals into the controler blocks! :)

    Today I made a video for another thread that shows me making a simple but elegant airlock using a computer from ComputerCraft to control the opening and closing of the airlock. It uses buttons and not levers so it can be opened from inside the station/habitat, from inside the airlock and from outside. Just press one of the 3 buttons and the airlock cycles :)

    Here is the video:


    And for easy reading of the program code here it is:

    redstone.setOutput("left", true)
    redstone.setOutput("right", false)

    while true do

    sleep(0.1)
    if redstone.getInput("back") then

    if redstone.getOutput("left") then
    redstone.setOutput("right", true)
    sleep(1)
    redstone.setOutput("left", false)
    else
    redstone.setOutput("left", true)
    sleep(1)
    redstone.setOutput("right", false)
    end
    end
    end

    Enjoy :)

    You can also set the controller to "Player is within 1 meter" to get a nice controller.

    This model is what i like to call "The Switcher" yes i know that option is here, but this is for people who want to have them switching open and closed.

    I like the concept because it makes it more contemporary since there aren't any "motion sensing" air locks in NASA or other current real life applications.

    Uhhh, I don't really understand that diagram, but I can say that there are ways you can wire up Redstone circuits to open and close with the press of a button. I mean you press a button once and it opens. You press it again and it closes. And it will work the same from whichever button you press. I think it's a toggle circuit. I think Project Red (or Red Power) have compact versions of the circuits too so they don't take up too much space.

    An airlock that will never have both doors open.

    OOOHH I totally see it now. You mean to have a delay or something so they don't switch at exactly the same time? Because this one already shows how to make it so only one is open at a time.

    Should be pretty simple. The airlock is closed when powered, right? In that case doubling up the signal should work - just route one though a repeater set to a short delay so it takes longer to switch off than it does to switch on.
