Just about to dive in to my first Pi project and I have obviously picked something a little difficult to to really test my programming and wiring skills.
I am wanting to control an Light tower, which will pull information from our Network Monitoring server.
As the light tower we have available is 24VDC, I have purchased the Automation Hat. But looking at the board and the documentation I am complete lost on what I connect what to where, I havent touched a relay in about 20 years!
This is mainly in terms of the following:
- Where do i connect the 24V input to - I take it that this will be the Buffered Input and the GND (-ve) section, but I am a bit confused on the Buffered part means?
- I take that I would then connect the light tower to the relevant relay connections (1 per light segment) and the GND section.
Please let me know if I have that correct or if I am about to blow something up (and maybe set light to the office!!)
