    hi there .. so im doing this project that needed me to move three motors (12v dc) back and forth 180 degree in sequence automatically..
    the process happen when i pushed a push button,the first motor will move back and forth 180 degree.when the first motor back to its original position,the second motor will automatically move and forth 180 degree too.same goes to the third motor.
    the process ended when the third motor back to its original position.
    and if i would like to move the motors again, i just need to push the push button..
    so i need help with circuit (schematic)and what electronics component i should use?

    It may save a lot of time and energy to use a Smart Relay, this is a miniature PLC that has all the timers etc you would need.
    It has the relay outputs to operate a larger current relay if needed.
    The software usually comes free.
    They are available of ebay fairly often.
    Some makes, mostly all re-labeled are Idec, Siemens, Omron to name a few.
