IACS 1 Channel Generic Logic Step-Up Converter Relay Driver Board 2A

(1 customer review)

£18.49

After receiving various requests for a single channel relay board that could be controlled using either positive or negative logic switching, we designed this board. As a quick run-down of what it is for; imagine you have a device that outputs a signal that only switches on the positive side such as a sensor and has a limit of 50 milliamps on its load capacity… You want this sensor to control a lamp that requires 1 amp of power which not only would overload it but also can not be switched on the positive side because of how it is wired… You are left with the option of changing the sensor which could be expensive, or redesigning your system around the limits imposed by the sensor. Well, this board we sell is the solution, it will accept the logic output from the sensor and isolate it from overload while replicating the signal to a negative switched output up to 2 amps load. Even the voltage doesn’t have to match – You could have a 5 volt sensor control a 12v lamp or a 12v sensor control a 5 volt lamp with our board!

The “1 Channel Generic” board is designed for connection to a relay with a DC coil that consumes no more than 2A (1.6A recommended target maximum). The idea behind the board is that you can use it to control any relay of your choice including some larger industrial relays that switch many hundreds of amps. The product is also optically isolated and should never load more than 20mA on its control circuit.

Specification & Features
• Optical isolation on the logic side (suitable for use in industrial situations) the lines don’t come into contact with the supply at all.
• Power supply input is to match your relay’s coil. We recommend that you do not exceed 36v with this board. 5v, 12v or 24v are all ideal if you have flexibility with your design.
• Compact industrial grade board does not flex or separate.
• Screw terminals on connectors, no soldering to the board needed.
• Works directly at the logic level from a parallel port, AVR, Arduino, PIC, ARM, 8051 and many other microcontrollers and interfaces that use ‘TTL’ or CMOS logic levels, low level current will not damage or overload signal pins.
• CE Mark, RoHS and WEEE compliant, manufactured in Europe.
• We may be able to produce a different board on request or
integrate a relay. Contact us with your requirements.

Description

Specification & Features

• This device has optical isolation on the logic side and is suitable for use in both industrial situations and domestic installations, the logic lines don’t come into contact with the supply at all unless they share the same power source. Compatible with Arduino, Raspberry Pi and more, use it as a shield to connect almost any relay to your microcomputer.

• Power supply input is to match your relay’s coil. We recommend that you do not exceed 36v with this board. 5v, 12v or 24v are all ideal suggestions if you have flexibility with your design.

• Compact industrial grade board does not flex or separate and has no moving parts to break.

• Screw terminals on connectors, no soldering to the board needed. Most of our products are produced using slotted screws but we can not guarantee this unless requested.

• Works directly at the logic level from a parallel port, AVR, Arduino, PIC, ARM, 8051 and many other microcontrollers and interfaces that use ‘TTL’ or CMOS logic levels, low level current will not damage or overload signal pins. People have previously wired this device into computer motherboards and burglar alarms without problems and been able to switch more demanding devices.

• CE Mark, RoHS and WEEE compliant, manufactured in the UK.

    Saved our skin! We had a rotary shaft encoder that was built into a giant food mixing machine and couldn’t be replaced, the original board we had controlling it blew (probably from age!) and it was impossible to source a replacement. The new one only worked with a ground switched output so we would probably have ended up replacing the whole mixer if it had not been for this little gizmo.
