    In this lesson, we’ll learn how to wire and draw multiple push buttons into our motor control station. It is often convenient to be able to control industrial machinery or equipment from more than one location. In this lesson, we’ll combine videos, schematics, and lab activities to deepen our understanding of the best way of adding multiple inputs to control motors.

    Again, we’ll be using several videos from Jim Pytel’s Big Bad Tech YouTube channel.

    The following videos are REQUIRED for this lesson before starting Lab 4. Remember to give yourself ample time to watch the videos and digest the material BEFORE coming in to do the labs.
