New idea with an invertor, help, no ssdc needed, but buttons
Well pretty much i've got a new idea because my other idea was getting a bit on the high cost side.
This is a simplification without going too technical (i'm not that good, yet).
Well its just going to be a standard pc (ish) with an invertor, what i'd like to do is have a button on the dash for the pc so i can push it into hibernate and out of hibernate (easy enough).
Now i don't want a start/shutdown controller linked to the ignition because that doesn't suit my needs. But i still need to stop the power flow from the battery to the invertor, so i want something like a relay, but i'd like to also be able to operate this from the dash with a switch or a button.
But a relay works by having a current passed through it, so whats the alternative? I'm not really into electronics much so i'm not sure what you can do instead of that, whether its as simple as a switch, if so what type of switch?
Thanks for any help in advance, really appreciate this.
