    Sorry to have to have it spelled out so much!
    No. And I don't claim to be the best at creating wiring diagrams. Let me try to break it down.

    From the 12 volt power source:
    -Negative(ground) will go to the switch negative, sensor negative (blue wire), and speed controller negative-in.
    -Positive (red) wire will go to the switch positive (outside pin) and that's it.

    From the switch:
    -Positive out (middle pin) will go to the relay-in positive, relay-out positive, and proximity sensor-in positive (brown wire).

    From the proximity sensor:
    Sensor wire out (S- black wire) will go to the relay negative-in.

    From the relay:
    -Negative-out will go to the speed controller positive-in. (This is what confuses people, because its not really a negative current flowing out. It is just a switch that connects positive from the 12 volt source to positive of the speed controller).

    From the speed controller.
    -Both negative and positive wires connect to the motor. Switching these two wires at the motor will control the direction it turns, CW or CCW

    For anyone who wants to understand more about how relays work, this is a decent video. Think of a relay just as a simple switch, but the way that switch gets turned on or off is by applying a low current power source. This way a high load current can be turned on or off using a low current source. The video talks about mechanical relays, but of course we are using a solid state relay. Same concept though.

    Thats perfect Tyler. I appreciate you writing it all out. I had a feeling some of those positives were feeders. I am a woodworker trying to learn some of this other "trades" stuff, so the more plain, the better.
