20A Beefcake Relay Control Kit (V2)

Your 5 volt system can wield great power with this big beefy relay board. How does 20 amps and up to 240VAC sound? The Beefcake Relay Control Kit contains all the parts you need to get your high-power load under control.

The heart of the board is a sealed, SPST-NO 20A Relay. The relay is controlled by 5V logic through a transistor and an LED tells you when the relay is closed. This is a kit, so it comes as through-hole parts with assembly required which makes for some nice soldering practice. Screw terminal connectors on either side of the board make it easy to incorporate into your project.

There are some pretty beefy traces connecting the relay to the load pins, but the 3-pin terminals are only rated for 15A max! If you plan on connecting a larger load, you’ll need to solder directly to the board. As always with high current and voltage, play it safe and use your judgment when deciding how much of a load you want to put on a board – in open airflow the PCB can handle the full 20A for a few minutes at a time, but in an enclosed area heat can build up.

Note: Please keep in mind that this board is really meant for someone with experience and good knowledge of electricity.

Features:

  • Voltage Rating: 220VAC/28VDC
  • VCC requirements: 4-6V, 150mA capable
  • SPDT pins exposed (Form C)
  • 14 AWG screw terminals for relay connections.
  • 10 AWG solder lugs for relay connections.
  • Flyback diode included
  • Zener recovery diode included (decreases turn-off time)
  • Heavy 2 oz. copper on PCB
