I have to make this project where I have liquid dispenser which counts how many glasses were dispensed. The water is dispensed from the tank to the glass by opening a solenoid valve connected with a micro switch. No I would like use the switch as a clock trigger for the counter circuit which means the voltage has to drop from 220V to 5V and converted from AC to DC. Now I know i have to use a deb ounce circuit to get a clean clocking signal.
Any help is greatly appreciated

Hi Ken,
Well right now its just a micro switch connected to a solenoid valve. I guess my question is about the conversion of the voltages etc. could you please recommend furt

Hi,

All you need is just a 230V coil supply relay which will be energized in parallel with solenoid valve. Give +5 VDC to relay's common and use NO or NC based on your requirement. Hope this should serve the purpose.
