    You can't beat simplicity for ballast tank control (with apologies to David F, JR, Nigel, etc)

    This is the basic wiring diagram using two microswitches for flood/blow of a ballast pump.

    No need to apolgise, Richard - it does the business!

    (I still use microswitches on my proportional piston tank to ask as limit switches. They are very reliablle. Just use a generously rated microswitch if you are switching the motor directly.)

    Hi David...
    Do you have a wiring diagram of micro switches as travel limiters on a piston tank?
    Thanks Lee

    Sorry I don't have a diagram.
    It is all in Norbert Bruggens book, Model Submarine Technology (A must have,I would say.)

    You put 2 microswitches in with diodes in parallel. (The switch cuts off the motor and the diode allows it to reverse.)

    David
