Good Afternoon All,
I'm quite new to the Arduino community and would like to build the following circuit. I have a Arduino Uno and would like to include the RS-360SH water pump. I bought the starter kit and I'm trying to utilise the example where a small dc motor is connected with a push button.
I've built the circuit, with the diode and IRF520 transistor. Yet, I cannot seem to get the pump going. I'm using a normal 9V battery as external power source. When hooking up die water pump to the battery directly it works quite well. Yet now I would like to include the Arduino and once that is sorted I would like to include a YF-S402 flow sensor which I bought.
Could you please give me some assistance as to whether I'm using the correct transistor? It would be much appreciated if you could give me a idea as to how to determine the correct transistor as my electrical knowledge is a bit short coming.
Thank you in advance.
