This module is a 5 V relay for switching higher currents. The relay switches the higher voltage when 5 V are applied to the voltage input of the switch.

The output header of the relay has two output terminals:

  • What is marked "NC" for "normally closed" in the figure below means that this passage is shorted by default without electrical switching at the relay.

  • What is marked "NO" for "normally open" in the figure below means that this passage is open or disconnected by default without electrical switching at the relay.

Technical data

Voltage range (AC) 0 V - 240 V AC at 10 A
Voltage range (DC) 0 V - 28 V DC at 10 A
Required switching current ca. 15 - 20 mA
Relay type Changeover switch
Dimensions 53 x 18 x 20 mm

Pin assignment

Warning

**Working with voltages higher than 30 V and especially with mains voltage (230 V) can cause physical damage and even be fatal.

We advise that work with higher voltages should only be carried out with the appropriate professional competence.**

Pin assignment Arduino

Arduino Sensor
Pin 10 signal
5 V +V
ground GND

The program simulates a flashing light - it switches the relay between the two states (or output terminals) in predefined time (delayTime).

int relay = 10; // Declares the pin to which the relay is connected
 
int delayTime = 1; // Value in seconds how long to wait between the switchovers
 
void setup ()
{
  pinMode (relay, OUTPUT); // The pin is declared as output
}
 
// The program simulates a blinker - it switches the relay in predefined 
// time (delayTime) between the two states (or output terminals).
void loop ()
{
  digitalWrite (relay, HIGH); // "NO" is now shorted;
  delay (delayTime * 1000);
  digitalWrite (relay, LOW); // "NC" is now shorted;
  delay (delayTime * 1000);
}
