Question about timer pump for oiler with override button
« on: July 16, 2011, 11:23:35 PM »
I'm still chugging along. Getting  control panel together.

If I use a Mach3  brain for a timer that oils the ways every say "8 minutes". Can I also have a  temporary push button so that I can oil it a few times manually  on start up?

Thanks,

JAckal   :)
Everything is bio-degradable if you run over it enough with a lawnmower.

Yes, shouldnt be a problem, you could get fancy and probably have it resetting the timer as well but just having the button connected to the output in the Brain will do it.

Thanks Hood,

I just didn't want the current to   back  feed  and burn something up.

Thanks,
