Capacitor discharge of latching relays and rotary filter - Direct current circuitry for sequentially energizing two or more motors or ther load devices, using capacitive discharge to latch in a relay for each load device. During one stage of operation a relatively small voltage is impressed on one lead of a capacitor whose other lead is grounded; a charge is thereby developed in the capacitor. Subsequently a relatively large voltage is impressed on the other lead of the capacitor to direct the charge into the coil of the relay, thereby effecting a relay latching action. The capacitor thereafter isolates the latching circuit from a de-latching circuit; the de-latching circuit is part of a latching circuit for a second relay used to energize a second load device. The invention is particularly useful in sequentially operating electric motors used in self-cleaning engine air cleaners. see full archive at
