In a simple application where you need to switch a signal line on and off, the REL2002_0 Signal Relay Phidget is a quick and easy solution. With a double-pole double-throw style relay, it can switch up to two signals of 60 watts of DC power or 125 VA of AC power each. By nature, this relay Phidget is isolated from load to control, so a power surge in the load side will not damage your VINT Hub or computer.
AC or DC Switching
For DC applications, you can switch a circuit of up to 120V or 2A, as long as the switching power is 60W or less (For example, 30V/2A or 120V/0.5A). Similarly, you can switch up to 2A or 240V AC, to a maximum of 125 VA of power (For example, 62V/2A or 240V/0.5A).
This relay is specifically intended to switch signals. If you need a relay that can switch power to a device, take a look at the more powerful relay boards on the “Other Relays” tab.
