    hi.. I am making a simple automatic sliding door with an LDR sensor and a triac to drive the motor.
    the problem is when the door is open i dont have an idea to close it. what will i do to reverse the polarity of the motor?

    You need H bridge.

    Hello,

    What kind of motor do you use?
    Also keep in mind that you block the movement of the door when there is something in the doorway.

    How are you driving the servo motor to open the door? Servos operate differently than DC motors.

    Didn't see he was using a servo. Servo is driven with PWM, NE555 can be used.

    Thank you for the help sir. I will do a research about this h bridge and how to use it.

    You can also drive a servo motor with plain DC which is reversed by contactor or relay.
    PWM is if you require rpm control.
    This is assuming it is not a simple RC servo but an industrial one?

    It sounds like you are powering it already to open it, you just need reversal?
    It is wise to qualify in your OP whether it is a model RC servo type or other.

    Can I combine this scr circuit with the h bridge sir ? instead of using the lamp in the scr I will change it with the h bridge together with the motor
