Hi there, i am a student and need help controlling a 6v dc motor with an electronic circuit, but i have no idea on how to get started or what components to use.

Im required to move the motor forward and reverse with a switch or some kind of input.

i have some basic knowledge on logic gates, resistors and such.

any help or reference would be great.

P.S love the site Razz

Using a switch (double pole, double throw type) to reverse a DC motor is very simple. All you need to do is reverse the polarity. Connect the + and - of the motor to the two common switch connections, then wire your power source with one polarity to the switch in direction 1 and the other polarity when in direction 2.

sorry for the bad description.

what i want is to make something like an electronic circuit controlling the switching by sensing the input(push button). like pushing the button to make the motor move forward and pushing the button again to make it reverse, as the motor will be mounted to a device similar to a plotter and it will move a device from
point A to point B or vice versa

so when i push the button the device will move to point A and stop. then when i push it again it will move to point B and stop. I also have limit switches on each end of the device.

something like that
thanks for the reply
