Self casting fishing rod

This is the device with the components before they are all attached and wired.

bread board setup

This is the wiring for the sensor, motor, particle photon, dc motor, resistor and AC to DC wall power supply (12V 4amp)

Code

IRsenor

Arduino
The code is for a reflectance sensor that is used to calculate the rotations of the the flywheel on our design once the wanted rotations have have been meet the relay switched is actuated to redirect power to a different component, which is the magnetic clutch. All this is used to run a self casting fishing rod.

/*
  DigitalReadSerial
 Reads a digital input on pin 2, prints the result to the serial monitor

 */

// digital pin 2 has a pushbutton attached to it. Give it a name:
int pushButton = 2;
unsigned long int duration=0;
int relayPin= 5;
int relayPin2=4;
int buttonState = 64000000;

// the setup routine runs once when you press reset:
void setup() {
  // initialize serial communication at 115200 bits per second:
  Serial.begin(115200);
  // make the pushbutton's pin an input:
  pinMode(pushButton, INPUT_PULLUP);
pinMode(relayPin,OUTPUT);
pinMode(relayPin2,OUTPUT);
  digitalWrite(relayPin,LOW);
  digitalWrite(relayPin2,HIGH);
}

// the loop routine runs over and over again forever:
void loop() {
  // read the input pin:
   //buttonState =(duration) ;

    
  // print out the state of the button:
    duration = pulseIn(pushButton, HIGH);
    Serial.println("    RPM ");
  //Serial.println(buttonState);
    Serial.print(duration);
    
  //i want the pin5 to turn off once my vaule on the serial monitor reads >2000 which pin 2 is the ir-reflectance sensor that is counting:
  if ((duration < 25000) && (duration > 0)){ 
    digitalWrite(relayPin2,LOW);
    digitalWrite(relayPin,HIGH);
    delay(5000);
    while(1);
    }
    

 //while(1);        // delay in between reads for stability
