I'm trying to control brushed DC motor that is connected to a gearbox that moves a linear slide to raise and lower a sensor. The motor will be controlled by an operator that is raising and lowering the sensor before and after the runtime of the general system. I am trying to keep it as simple as possible and thought I may be able to use a DPDT switch with a center off but have become concerned there may be issues I'm overlooking such as back EMF or arc suppression for the switch contacts. I was hoping to get some advice on best practices for this type of circuit/design. If it's important the motor is 12Vdc and has a rated maximum current use of 0.3A.
