    Hi all,

    I'm currently working on a Arduino project that controls a light fixture housing three 60W incandescent lights. Here is a link to the project.

    Unfortunately the relay used in the article is out of stock so I was looking at finding another. I find the specifications sheets a little confusing for relays so I just wanted some confirmation that this relay would be a suitable substitute.

    Thank you!
    Dan

    Hi Dan

    Yup that one looks good :)
    the important data......
    Contact rating (resistive)
    5A, 250VAC
    5A, 250VAC (N.O.)
    3A, 250VAC (N.C.)
    5A, 250VAC
    Max. carrying current
    7A
    Max. switching voltage
    250VAC, 150 VDC

    Have fun BE CAREFUL of mains voltage !! :)
