    I am new to this field of study, and I am struggling in my Instrumentation class. The math I understand, the lab part is hard concept for me.
    Our last lab had us using a relay switch, and I still don't understand what I did.
    We had to hook up a power supply, capacitor, relay switch, push button switch, and eventually light a light bulb.
    Can anyone either explain my lab to me or just explain how to hook up the relay switch??
    Thanks so much,
    The switch is...
    Hls-4078-dc12v

    With (2) C contact sets, you might have set this up as a latching relay. Did you?
    Is this your circuit?

    I don't attend your school. I can't keep guessing what circuit you're working on. You will have to make the next drawing.
