Hello all, I am very new to using Arduino. I'm trying to turn TYC-40 Synchronous Motor on/off with Arduino UNO. I don't need to change it's speed and it only has to go in one direction (clockwise or counter-clockwise are both fine, as long as it consistently goes that way). The label says it's AC 12V motor, 50/60Hz 8r/min 1-2W CW/CCW. The motor looks like this https://picclick.com/TYC-40-synchronous-motor-12VAC-AC-12V-8-10-r-min-231135683510.html.
I don't understand how to connect it. Do I need a relay for it to work? I've only used servos before, but I have this motor on hand, so I'd prefer to use this if it's not too difficult for a beginner.
Any help is much appreciated. Thank you so much!
