I'm trying to build a model rocket launcher circuit. So far I have this
The igniter requires 12V and 3A, BAT1 is 12.6V 9800mAh.
The arduino input pin should read HIGH when the igniter is connected and LOW when it isn't provided that SW2 is closed.
The when the arduino output is HIGH, the FET should trigger and the igniter should ignite provided that both SW1 and SW2 are closed.
Various Datasheets (they're not links because I don't have enough rep):
- M1: FQP30N06L 60V Logic N-Channel MOSFET
- D1: 10A05 10 Ampere Rectifier
- D4: 1n4148 Small Signal Diode
- C1: No datasheet, 50V 100µF
Could someone please look over this schematic and make sure everything works? And additionally, I want to replace SW1 with an illuminated toggle switch that has 3 pins,
GND. Could someone please edit the schematic to use that LED toggle as I don't know how to wire it. I was told this might work but they weren't sure:
Additionally, this circuit can be simulated at this link (Falstad).
