HOW TO: Wire a DPDT rocker switch for reversing polarity
Home Automations Pop Up TV Lift Cabinet in under three hours
My 4 pin switch has jumpers to the opposite corners, with the positive and negative terminals in the middle of the switch. Can this switch be used to wire the actuator?Thanks.
Hithere, I hope some one can help, I am trying to sort out somecontrols for a wheelchair I am building, I have sorted out all theactuators to run from separate rocker switches (4 x 6 pin DPDT) theyare powered from the on board 12v batteries 2x =24volts what I wantto do is try to find a way I can wire up several actuators (the sameones I need with separate controls too) so I can press one button andhave the seat riser the foot rests and the strand function all workfrom the one DPDT button as all are required to make the chair get into the stand position. The problem is I need to be able toautomatically isolate the power from the separate buttons just incase I activate them by mistake at the same time thus causing Pos+ &Neg- being sent at the same time to the same connectors on theactuators. As the functions are battery intensive it also needs tooperate from the on board batteries. Any help advice oh so welcome.
I built this using a toggle switch, so I could run a scavenged DC motor forwards and back, as a proof of concept. Me and my son are going to be building a toy car out of scavenged parts around the house. Oh, also, the power supply I used is a repurposed USB cable plugged into a 5v 1A device charger.
