It's a water level switch, and I need to power a hydroponics water aerator.

I have a sensor switch that can only power 10 watts when switched. Where can I find a diagram of how to make the switch trigger full power in a circuit?

In that situation you would use a relay or transistor to switch the load, but you are going to have to give more information on the sensor, power supply, aerator...etc.

Welcome to AAC!

You can use a mechanical relay to switch higher power.

Your question is missing a lot of information.

What is "full power"?

What is the power source for the sensor?

Is the sensor output a set of relay contacts, or is it a solid-state switch such as an open collector or open drain?

What are the voltage and current requirements for the pump?
