I am using a 24V DC motor in my application.
I would like to stop my 24DC motor rotation in one direction only i. e. suppose the DC motor is rotating clockwise, in my application, it may happen that it is being rotated anti-clockwise by the user forcefully. Now, I would like to stop that from happening.
I am thinking of using some kind of electronic lock which will latch itself upon receiving an input but not sure about it.
The thing is, it is not supposed to rotate unidirectionally. It rotates in both directions. And when someone tries to rotate it in the direction it is not supposed to rotate forcefully, my sensors detect it and the controller is then supposed to send the command to the lock then.
Any suggestions(I need something which will lock itself upon sensing something like this happening, not at all times)!
Thanks in advance for your help.
