The problem is that the master has a carpentry workshop and a vacuum cleaner is installed in the workshop. The vacuum cleaner is connected to a milling machine and a jigsaw. Previously, the master made a control panel for the vacuum cleaner and it was started simultaneously with a jigsaw or a milling machine (of course, the hose must be rearranged into the slot of the corresponding machine). Over time, the workshop's arsenal was supplemented by a band saw and a sander. Now, to control the vacuum cleaner, you have to pull out the plug from the remote control socket, plug it into a power outlet and thus turn on the vacuum cleaner.
Of course, you can redo the remote control and include these two tools in its work, but if there are more consumers? You won't be able to “expand” the remote control indefinitely. Then the master decided to place the control of the vacuum cleaner at the end of the hose. In this case, when installing the hose into the slot, you can immediately turn on the vacuum cleaner.
Tools and materials: -3D-printer; -Soldering accessories; -Multimeter; -Stripper; -Nippers; -Remote control with relay; -Extension; -Plastic box (82x52x35 mm);
-2 round head screws 10 mm;
-Bolt M3x20 mm with a cylindrical head;
Step one: choosing a button
The decision has been made and now you need to decide on the switch. If you install a conventional switch, you will have to pull the wires, which is not very convenient.
A good solution would be to install a remote control at the end of the hose and a relay on the vacuum cleaner. When choosing a relay, special attention should be paid to the parameters of the device. Taking into account the characteristics of the vacuum cleaner, the master chooses a relay for 20 A.
Step two: control panel body
To install the remote control on the hose, the master developed and 3D printed a special case. The standard case was disassembled and the board with the button was installed in a new one.

To install the remote control on other hoses, you can print a holder in the form of a bracelet.

Step three: case for relay
The relay will be attached to the table leg, next to the vacuum cleaner, and for his master also printed a corpus.
Drills holes for wires in the body.
Step four: installation
Now you need to connect the relay. Cuts the extension cord, strips the wires and connects to the relay. The connection diagram is available on the original relay housing.
The relay is glued to the case cover.
After connecting, it checks the installation.
Screws the relay to the table leg .
Connects the vacuum cleaner to the relay. Turns on and checks its work.
Everything is ready.
