wiring a linear actuator with relays Answered

  Hello everyone. I'm trying to run a linear actuator with built in limit switches by remote control. I bought the remote from a parts store. The remote was supposed to be used for windows up and down, door locks and other stuff. I would like to be able to use the relays that I already have on hand. I want to be able to push a button on the remote and the actuator go all the way out or in without holding the button down the whole time. Thank for your help.


Ask it as a question, and I can post a schematic there so everyone can find it.

Has this thing got three buttons, one for up, one for down and one for stop. Its doable with relays, probably three of them, one each for direction, and one for stop.
