in my system i use a series of relays, a timer and a motor contactor. when
i push
the on button on the pendent it brings in a relay that latches through the off
button relay, this on relay puts power to the fan (or rsg motor)and starts the
timer. this allows the fan to come up to speed before the timer energizes the
main contactor for the transformer. then when the off push button is pressed it
energizes the latching relay, dropping out the on relay thereby shutting the
whole thing down. this works great as i keep my thumb on the off button at all
times the coil is running incase anything happens. when firing in close
i figured that if i was hit by a streamer, the involuntary contraction of my
muscles would cause me to squeeze the off button and for outside runs i can
25' back and operate. i have the circuit drawn in windows paint, if any one
like it let me know off list and i will send it out?
hope this helps,   marc
