relay switching controll......
I want to set up a relay based switching control for a dehumidifer. I'm looking for help on this project.
The dehumidifer sits in the basement and the condensate it creates is pumped outside by use of a condensate pump. The condensate pump has a low voltage safty switch built-in so that in case of a pump faliure (overflow) the switch will open.
What I'd like to do is shut down the dehumidifer if the safty switch on the pump is activated. I belive I will need a realy to achive this. Unfortunitly thats about where my knowledge to set-up such a system ends.
The low-voltage of the pump switch would need to shut-down the line voltage to the dehumidifer.
What kind of relay do I need? Where would a get a relay like this?
