I am building a circuit to operate a Linear Actuator to open and close a lid.
The open and close times are the same.
The standard monostable circuit works.
There is one switch to tell if the lid is open or closed, it shows 12v+ when open and is grounded when closed.
I have built one timer unit. It works to specs.
I was wondering, since the timers will be the same, would it be possible to use the same components for both timers.
Pins 2 and 3 would use different triggers and the outputs would go to different places as well.
I would use jumpers between the two 555 Chips.
Basically my thought would be to connect all pins but 2 and 3 in parallel with each other.
Would this fly, or am I missing something.
It would be impossible (I trust) to trigger both timers at the same time.
