DIYers Tool – Relays, relays, relays…

What are relays? You need relays for various DC/AC devices. Even your car has 30-40 relays on it for your head lamps, tail lights, turn signals, and etc…

Here’s an example of making a Party Light using a CUSB22R that has relays on-board.
You have couple options:

For small to medium apps requiring up to 5A at 250VAC or 5A at 30VDC,
you can try relay4 board or relay8 boards. For continous ON/OFF AC operation, you could be better off with SSR4 or SSR8 Boards.

There’s also Relay Cell or SSR Cell for single output usages and these cost less than $6.

For higher voltage applications, you might want to try:
Allen Bradley relays

Omron relays

Omega relays

Mouser catalog has good options for relay searching too.
