How Do I Wire a Snap Action Switch to an Actuator?
September 11, 2021 - 11:05pm

Hi. Newbie here, and someone who is completely ignorant of electronics. I am trying to open and close a small door with a linear actuator that is triggered by a snap action switch. So when the small auto pulls into the garage, it depresses the switch which retracts the actuator closing the door. And when leaving the garage, the switch is released which extends the actuator opening the door. I have no idea how to wire this. Can anyone help? A wiring diagram would be a great help. Do I need any other components?



By the way, the small auto is a robot lawn mower. I built a garage for it and need a door... Thank you!

What is the part number of the switch and actuator?
