Im playing with a pool actuator. its a 3 wire 24v ac system.
1 common, then 2 hot leads.
each lead is connected to a micro switch. Put power on one side ..the valve actuates one direction . put power on the other side, the valve opens in the opposite direction.
Im going to use a zen 16 so i can control which micro switch gets the power...but if i happen to power both micro switches at once...there is a good chance to fry the actuator.
im using relay 1 for pool direction and and relay 2 for spa direction
Actuation should take no more than 30 seconds..but would like to be able to change that value if it takes longer or shorter to move between positions
will be using dashboard to activate the relay. Ideally id want to cut the power to the relay after its done its job but thats a sim0le matter of setting the parameters right in the device page...so i shouldn't have to configure a rule to achieve that
So - question
if i press on in either real in the dashboard - how would i go about locking out the other relay for X seconds?
