Our astro club is in the process of automating our observatory that has a 5 meter dome.
We've bought the MaxDome 2 control cards and need to integrate it with the existing motors which were previously manually driven off a switch.
Given the relays on the Max dome cards are rate at 12V, 5 Amps but the rotation motors pull around 48Amps so we need a relays to isolate the card.
I'm okay, but not great with electronics and it's not clear what/how the previous person wired this I'm looking to simplify this set up.
I wondering about winch motors solenoid (Double Pole Reversing Solenoid) and came across this one: https://www.jaycar.c...lenoid/p/SY4202
It's needs 12v, 5 Amp to drive the switch but looks simple to wire in the card in place of the switch and should take the motor current.
Does this look like a good option or does anyone else have experience or recommendations for this kind of set up?
