Wiring relay with limit switch to limit revolution of 12vdc motor to single revolution using a momentary toggle switch? Answered
I am attempting to wire (with my limited electronics knowledge) a 12vdc motor under a hopper to limit the revolution of the motor to single revolution each time the momentary toggle switch is activated. The motor is connected to a cam that has a hole partially through it that, when the switch is toggled, should fill with product from the hopper, rotate taking the product with it and allowing the product to drop out of the bottom side. This is designed to dispense a metered dose of product from the hopper each time the momentary switch is toggled. I have a spst limit switch in place that works as intended mechanically, it is not hooked up. I also have a 12v relay and momentary toggle switch I intend to use with this project.
My problem stems from my lack of electronics knowledge, I have no idea how this relay, limit switch and toggle switch should be wired together and to the motor and power source. Any guidance would be GREATLY appreciated! --MIKE
