I know what I would like but I don't know what it is called.
I would like a switch that will turn a 120v motor on and off when hit. But I need a switch with a sensitive touch mechanism. Basically I want to create an automatic fluid return system and the pump needs to turn on when the level is high and then turn off when the fluid level is low. I have a pump and I just need a switch then I can mechanically create a float to actuate the switch and turn the motor on and off.
I have limit switches but they are NO or NC. I need something like a limit switch but like I stated - will turn on when hit and then when hit again will turn off.
I looked for detection switches and snap action switches but they seem to only work momentary while pressed.
Any insight on what type of switch I should look for would be greatly appreciated.
