How to Reverse a DC Motor Using Buttons.

About: My name is Taylor, I am an electrical repair tech by day and an engineer by night, after work or free time.

In this short video I show you how to reverse a DC motor using buttons instead of a DPDT switch or any remote. Recently I wanted to make a DC motor spin in one direction and in the other direction for a project. I wanted to use buttons so the DPDT switch was out of the question, and I didn't want to program anything because the task I wanted to achieve didn't really require it. So I decided to keep it very very simple and use buttons. It takes 4 push buttons (two sets of two) and a motor and a battery. It's simplicity at its finest! I hope you can benefit from this enjoy :)

    If you're wanting to stick with solid state components, a relay would eliminate 2 of the buttons.
