  • Model: RT424005
  • Shipping Weight: 0.01Kg
  • Units in Stock: 7
  • Manufactured by: Tyco Electronics


Details: Miniature power PCB relay operating at 5Volts, 80mA.
The contacts are rated for currents up to 8Amps, 250VAC.

It's ideal to be used in applications like domestic appliances, heating control, light control and general building control.

Please note that the current drawn by the coil is higher than what a common microcontroller or Arduino output digital line could tolerate. For this reason you can't connect the relay coil directly to a digital output line but you need to build a small driver made by a transistor and two resistors.
