    Hello everybody :)

    My first post here, i signed up since im having trouble with one of my projects.

    I have a linear actuator which will be used to lift and drop my monitors. There are two seperate switches in the power supply thing that was supplied with it.

    However i dont want to use the switches in the power supply, i want to extend the wire of the switches and use the current switches i have in my own control panel thing. The problem is the switches in the power supply are 3 pin switches and my switches are 2 pin.

    There are two wires, +ve and -ve that leave the power supply, and two that enter the actuator (obviously). Is there any way possible that i can use my 2 pin switches and connect them in such a way that i will have 1 button from the lifting and one for the dropping.

    I know it sounds very confusing, but this is the best i could do at explaining, If anyone doesnt understand, please let me know and i'l take some pictures of the power supply or something to help.
