The SPDT Relay (30A) is a high-quality Single Pole Double Throw Relay(SPDT). The Relay consists of a coil, 1 common terminal, 1 normally closed(NC) terminal, and one normally open(NO) terminal. When the coil of the relay is at rest (not energized), the common terminal and the normally closed terminal have continuity. When the coil is energized, the common terminal and the normally open terminal have continuity. This relay's coil is rated up to 5V and the contact is rated up to 30A (@250VAC, 30VDC). Use it to control AC appliances or high-current DC devices.
Why do we want to use a relay and do we really need to? Anytime you want to switch on/off a device that draws more current or works with a high voltage, you'll need to use a relay. That is to say, the relay is "a high voltage or current switch controlled by low voltage". The coil of an SPDT relay that we most commonly use draws very little current (the Grove - Relay supports 10A). Now, with this 30A relay, you can control many more high-current switch devices such as headlights, parking lights, horns, etc.
- High Switching Current: The relay's coil is rated up to 5V and the contact is rated up to 30A (@250VAC, 30VDC)
- SPDT Relay: The current output to different directions can be used to control two devices
- Normally closed relay: The two contacts are closed when the coil is not energized
- Grove compatible interface: The product ensures "Plug and Play" and could be versatile for various applications of Grove
- Electrical Heater
- Air conditioning
- Household Appliance
