Hi All, Due to unforseen circumstances I have inherited a chicken farmer as a customer. He has just taken on another free range egg unit and wishes to install motorised 'pop holes' so that he can remotely open and close the doors for the chickens via a GSM module.(there are also push buttons in the plant room to manually operate.) He already has purchased a suitable motor / gearbox arrangement with limit switches and emergency limits (S11 & S12 are the working switches) .
I am somewhat out of my comfort zone here but have drawn up the attached layout to control the motor. I have omitted circuit protection, neutral & earth for clarity. I think this will work, but have I missed anything? I don't think emergency stops are required as the doors close really really slowly and will be camera monitored. I have tried to consider all possible conditions but am now going a bit cross eyed so might well have messed up. Am therefore appealing to the collective wisdom. Looking forward to replies! Thanks. John
