    Hi, I am looking to create an on make relay, so when the user pushes a button, no matter how long the user pushes it, the relay stays on for 1 to 2 seconds. the time does not have to be perfect. I am looking to have it send a 24v 3A out of the output. any suggestions? and THank you ahead of time.

    Monostable 555 timer. Vol VI-experiments, chapter 8 at the top of this page.

    Out of the output of the relay, or out of the ouput of the circuit that controls the relay?

    Yep. That's the problem with using the word, "it". People have trouble tracking which "it" you're talking about.

    I do apologize about the "it". The relay will be used to control a circuit that require 24v @ 3A.

    Have you looked at the monostable circuit? Do you have the skills to make one? Do you have a power supply to give it DC voltage? Do you have a push button? Do you have a relay?
