@zoomkat Are you saying i shouldnt use SPDT/DPDT relays? Wouldnt a car starter relay be one of those?
@Zoomkat, Are you saying if I can find a reasonably priced DPDT relay then I should only use one to get both of my tasks done? Or will I have to buy 2 DPDT relays (one to control direction and one to activate the external power supply)
@dc42 You seem to be the most up to date on my lack of electronics knowledge as you answer my questions wherever I go haha.I was initially going to buy an already configured H bridge instead of making one myself to control the motor's direction and then I was going to use that with a relay (I'm assuming SPST) to be able to switch on the external power supply needed for the motor. You think it would be easier to configure two SPDT relays as an H bridge instead? Would that activate the power supply and control the motor's direction? I need to be able to do both.
