    Hi can anyone help me with a project i just got given.

    Its got to do the following

    It has 2 12v supply ( one for the control circuit and 1 for the pumps)

    Its got to control 2 pumps to balance out a load (via pumping liquid into tanks to make the mounted item level)

    Have 3 lamps (2 to show what motor is running and 1 to indicate that the object is level)

    I know its got to do with Op Amp and maybe some relays can anyone help me out?

    Regards Dan

    You'll need to supply much more info. How big are those pumps (voltage, current, horsepower, etc.)? How are you detecting "level" of your object? Lighting the lights will be easy. I assume LED indicators would be OK, like red for running and green for level, or something like that?

    Soz not got much info on the pumps other than the 12v supply that runs them they are only small like fish tank pumps

    The level of my object is set with a potentiometer its a balance bar of such like a tightrope walkers pole for balance

    and yes LED's will be fine
