    I know this is sort of the reverse of what this subforum is for, but I wasn't sure where else to post.

    I'm looking for a relay that can be switched on and off via a DC signal (5VDC, <100mA), but has the capability to switch a wall outlet (120VAC, >=15 A). I've looked all over mouser, but cannot find anything that meets these two specs. Does such a relay exist or is this type of device unfeasible?

    take a look at this link, every relay listed is rated for 120VAC or more and 15A or more, and can be controlled with 5V or less, and 92.6mA or less, only 114 to look through, good luck

    Ah, thank you! I think I may have switched the meaning of contact and coil ratings when I was searching.
