    Hey guys. Great board!!!

    I need some help on designing a conveyor belt controller. I would like to get a circuit diagram for it.

    I am using a 1000rpm motor that has about 1/2 HP. I want the motor to run when there is not metal, and stop when it detects metal.

    Power source: 120VAC, 60hz power.

    The main components are motor , power source , relay , magnetic sensor, dc power supply. The diagram needs to include this.

    If you can draw this up I will be happy to paypal!

    Thanks guys!

    This sounds like a homework assignment. Is it?

    You can use metal detectors in combination with an amplifier (if it is necessary) to drive a relay. Thus with the relay you can control the motor.

    This does sound like a homework assignment, and the offer of payment is over the line. I am locking this thread until clarification.

    To the OP: Firstly, the members here are willing to help but you must do the work. Secondly, we do not endorse offers for payment of work.

    The thread will remain locked. Have a read of this if you wish to try and ask the question again.
