Provides 6 isolated 500ma relays in a handy surface mount box. The input RJ45 connector is a match for our Axia GPIO Breakout Board (A15-B01-2) or the logic port on a Wheatnet IP Blade. Axia and Wheatnet ports power the coils of the relays.
Each relay is rated for 500ma max current. Outputs provided on screw terminal strip.
The 6 Channel 5V Relay Interface from NotaBotYet was designed to provide an easy to install relay interface controlled by the six open collector outputs of a standard GPIO port on a Wheatnet-IP logic port. The outputs of the Wheatnet-IP logic port are designed to support a nominal current of 50 milliamps. This is typically just enough current to control only a couple of typical LEDs. The onboard relays of the 6 Channel Interface will allow these six outputs to control external devices requiring more current… up to 500 milliamps. This is more than enough to control various multi-LED tally lights on microphone booms, modern low voltage LED “ON AIR” lights, or any other device requiring isolated dry-contact switching up to 500 milliamps. The six relays are “Form A” type reed relays and the output connections are all isolated from each other to allow each output to switch different voltage levels or signals. This device also works with the NotaBotYet Axia GPIO Breakout Board Part #A15-B01-2 (although only 5 of the relays are controllable). The coils of the relays are powered by +5v present on the Wheatnet-IP logic port or the Axia GPIO port meaning the device does not require an external power supply to operate the relays. However, external power may be required to operate whatever the relay outputs are being used to control.
