Hi I’m trying to remotely actuate my extractor it’s a 110v dewalt dwv901 as my previous post-https://www.ukworkshop.co.uk/threads/power-take-off-via-remote.128104/
I’m trying a different approach now and need someone in the know to see if my schematic will work.
Delay switch-
Current sensor switch-
Remote switch-
Solid state relay-

Haven't looked at the rest of the circuit but isn't the 110V live feed to the 12VDC power supply missing?

Hi

Your 110 to 12 volt transformer will output Ac not Dc! Is this a transformer or a Psu?

Another point, if that is a PSU then I would suggest the output is 0 & + 12 volts not a - 12 to +12 volt supply.

I have a remote switch for the extractor. It has a power take off socket. To use either I have to manually turn the switch on the extractor it’s a pain as there usually something in front of it. So that brings me to make this arrangement so I can have best of both worlds that would increase my workflow.

Three questions.
Why bother with the solid state relay?
Why not use an ordinary relay?
Looking at the 110V being used, are you using this in a business?

It's been written about before - but why not use a smart switch? You can get wifi switches which work at 110V (quick 10A example on amazon, not a recommendation per-se) and this plus an Alexa device will be much easier in the workshop. Assuming you have wifi!

Nothing wrong with using relays etc, but it seems like a good chance to make a bigger step forward?

I don’t think it will work as intended.
I assume you intended the delay timer to provide an overrun so the extraction stops a short while after the tool.
Looking at the circuit it appears the delay timer only has a power feed when either the current sensor is active or the remote switch is on. If neither are active, there is no power to the delay timer and the extraction will stop immediately.
I would expect any overrun delay switch to have switched input to act as a trigger plus a permanent live to draw power from after the trigger is removed.

Looking at the circuit following the comments from HamsterJam, I believe that is an on delay timer or a pulse timer, when the power is removed it will switch the output off.
You need to look at an alternative.

What ordinary relay would you suggest?
I work on site most of time and requires 110v tools

Yes that what I want it to do. Your right I see the problem permanent live to + and switch input to common only

I have it set up with a remote like this one
But I would like the remote and auto functions to work together without going anywhere near the extractor.

The other low-tech solution I've seen is a bathroom pull-chord switch (was actually mounted so that the chord was horizontal not vertical) to switch the extractor on. Just need to be sure of the switch rating. Then the switch is next to the extractor, chord is whoever you want. Logistics may dictate that this won't work, but it's a thought.

Had a better look this evening and agree with NetBlindPaul - I don’t think you have the right timer module there.
You will need one that has a power connection permanently connected to your 12v PSU plus a separate trigger input that will cause the output relay to energise all the time the triggers signal is present. The delay timer should start when the trigger signal is removed and de-energise the relay after the preset time.
Not quite sure how you envisaged the remote function working but assuming it is so you can manually start the extraction without a tool running, I suggest it just needs wiring into the solid state relay bypassing the overrun. If you need the overrun when using the remote start, then it will need to activate the trigger on the time delay module in the same way as the current sensor.
Finally, make sure your solid state relay is OK for the big inductive load the motor in your extractor will almost certainly impose on it.
