I would be grateful if someone can explain me in detail on the working of my Timer used in a pneumatic system which lets say when the timer reaches 25 seconds it activates a solenoid then a piston is either pushed outward or inward. My electrical / electronic knowledge is fairly basic.
I want to understand how those pins work actually.
What i have done so far.
I researched on DPDT Switch for example one of the resources is Wiring A DPDT Switch - 2 Methods Explained - YouTube
My exact Timer details are here as per supplier description click here
The timer is attached to an outer shell..i believe for easier connection see here
You can see from point 1 the DPDT has 6 pins in total. 3 for on SPDT and the other 3 for SPDT
How ever my actual problem is from my understanding after researching the concept i learnt is very different when i look at my timer it has alot more pins in reality. The timer has i believe over 8 pins.. how??
The machine has a total of 3 timers. One timer works for 25sec, 1sec and 2sec respectively . out of the three timers 2 timers separately connect to 2 different solenoids and which further activate a pneumatic piston and deactivates within a second or so. the third activates a solenoid for air from a compressor to pass or not.
