This is a small and easy to use 1 channel relay board that operates on 5V. This relay board lets you control one 240V power appliance directly from 5V microcontrollers or low voltage circuits. Perfect for switching 240V appliances - lights, fans, etc, and even high power motors at lower voltages.
Works on 5V
240V Appliances can be controlled from a microcontroller with a 5V signal
High power loads which cannot be directly controled from microcontrollers can be switched on/off with this relay module. Loads like 12V DC Motors, Solenoids, LEDs, etc can be controlled with this module.
Relay board uses high quality relays with a maximum load of 7A/240 V AC or 7A/24V DC
Board comes with connectors for easy connections to both the microcontroller and the load
The board uses a high quality relay, which can handle a maximum of 7A/240 V AC or 7A/24V DC. Each relay has all three connections - Common, Normally Open, Normally Closed brought out to 3 pin screw terminals which makes it easy to make and remove connections. The board has a power indication and a relay status LED to ease debugging. The board requires a 5V to power supply to power the relay. The relay can then be turned on and off with 5V HIGH Signal from a microcontroller.
Power input and relay control signals are brought to header pins on the board. Hence, the board can be easily interface with our Arduino and development boards using our female to female jumper wires.
Note: The relay used in this board, requires 5V to operate. If you donot have a 5V Power supply in your project, we also have the same board with a 12V Relay.Related Documents
