shouldn't be a problem.
Can anyone see any problems with using the 12v rail from my M1 to power a circuit board I have cooked up. It has a bunch of relays that control an electric motor. I'm concerned about the inductive load dumping a load of power into the other items on the rail when it is shut off.
Anyone got any thoughts?
(The board controls the motorised screen I manufactured - I can supply a circuit diagram if anyone is interested)
As long as you're using the 12v to power the relay and NOT the motor itself, yeah.
Dont forget the diode across the relay. I did and fried my Mo-fo-Board
I'll take some pictures - having a bit of a nightmare with the limit switches but should have it done by the weekendOriginally Posted by Bugbyte
