    I want to reverse a dc linear actuator hourly.
    I want a time period of one hour between reverses.
    I am thinking of using a DPDT relay timer for the reversal but ia m a bit confused about the wiring ; it is pretty confusing.
    Subsequently,i want to install an over switch to enable me test if the actuator is in working condition .
    Any clues?

    If you are not the same person who posted a nearly identical question in the projects forum, then refer to this; speak up if that doesn't answer your question.

    No i did not post it, i joined the forum about 3 weeks ago !That post very similar to mine;but in the latter case there is no override.
    The actuator is 12VDC and the actuator is also 12VDC.At the same time i want install a DPDT override switch.Any clues.
