The wiring diagram below is for the Landing gear circuit in a homebuilt airplane using Automation Direct pressure switches. These pressure switches turn the hydraulic pump off when a pre-set pressure is obtained. As pressure bleeds off over time the pump will re-energize when a pre-set lower pressure is reached.
I want to add TWO momentary push-button switches that can override/bypass the pressure switches. Why? Well, for example, if the pressure switch in the gear up part of the circuit should fail, I can still get the gear to retract by activating the override push button.
Another example would be on a lengthy cross country at high altitude where the colder temps cause the pressure that holds the gear up to fall enough to slow me down (because of drooping gear doors), but not enough to activate the pump automatically. In this example activating the gear up override/bypass switch manually will bring the pressure and the drooping doors back up.
Is it even possible to do this? I want the pressure switches to do their thing most of the time, but as I indicated there may be times when I want or need to operate the pump manually. In order to do that, however, the pressure switches will need to be completely bypassed.
In the diagram I posted, the red and green marks represent momentary push button switches. I think wiring those switches in as shown should be all that is needed, but I'd like to have an expert's opinion before I start running wires through the airplane. The alternative spot for the push button switches would be in the signal lines (white wires coming off the two pressure switches).
Thanks in advance for any insight you are able to provide.
