I have one question regarding the electrical connection.

The pins P1 and P2 of the PCB must be connected to minus of the Battery in order to turn the motor to drive it respectively Upwards and Downwards. Now, I only have this extra function in my Pat Heny, thus I don´t need a Multiswitch, Nautic Module ect. According to the Manual, a "2-channel Switch" can also be used. How does such a thing look like, and who delivers these?

in my type206 I used a BTS , it is a switch produced by Bruggen/Engel. It should be used to command a piston or a pump but I found one spare in my cellar and it worked fine.
I guess you can use a duo switch by Robbe, an electronic switch (2ways) by mutliplex or a RS5 from Subtech.

Hi Andres:
One other way to accomplish the task is with an old servo and micro switch with the roller from Radio shack. Ground to the common and the Normally Open to either the up or down and the Normally Closed to the other. The solid wheel has a rasied place so when the servo travels to one end, the switch is activated!

Best, Ed :D
Just one more wire!

Thanks a lot guys for the answers. I found a very cheap 2-way switch at - only 7.95 Euro..!

That seems to work.
