Thanks for your help.
Apologies if I wasn't clear. I tried using your analogy but it ended up complicating the description of what I'm trying to do.Imagine that I'm using a photocell as a switch. If a person puts their hand in front of the photocell making it dark, it would increase the voltage flowing to the storage capacitor/ "bucket". I want to have three loads that trigger at three different voltage levels, let's say 2, 3 and 5 volts for the sake of this example. So if a person put their hand in front of the photocell for long enough, it would trigger the first load once the capacitor reached two volts and then would continue to charge the capacitor until it triggered the subsequent load at three volts. I realize that the first load triggering will drop the voltage in the cap but my assumption is that if the user holds their hand long enough in front of the photocell, that the voltage level in the storage capacitor will continue to rise and trigger the other loads since it's connected to a wall power supply.Does this make more sense? In the end, I'm just trying to figure out the best way to have multiple loads trigger at different voltage levels.
