Product details

5V DC 2A DPDT Relay

• Suitable for various circuits in the modelling and hobby markets
• Pin terminals for easily soldered joints
• 2A switching capacity
• Designed for operation on a 5V DC power source
• Double pole double throw

Why use a standard relay?
This relay is perfect for use in home automation, modelling applications or hobbies. The relay can be mounted onto a PCB board, and comes with eight easily soldered pins. Its compact size means the relay can fit into a wide range of projects and enclosures. The relay can be run off a 5V power supply.

What does double pole double throw (DPDT) mean?
A single pole has one common terminal that can be switched between an NO (normally open) terminal and an NC (normally closed) terminal. The double pole has two poles connected this way, so there are two NO contacts and two NC contacts. When the relay’s coil is not powered, the common connector will be linked to the NC connections. When the relay is powered, the common connector will be linked to the NO connections.

Why would I use a relay?
There are several advantages to using a relay. You may want to switch a high current to a lower current, for example controlling a mains operated device using a lower powered switch.
You can use a DPDT relay to connect a circuit in one way when there is no power, and another when the relay is active - for example switching two lights on with a single switch or reversing the motion on a DC motor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Size isn't everything Just bought six of these and they all work fine and do activate using a 5 v DC supply (USB PSU for example). Beware that the dimensions quoted are wrong, they are only 20x10x10 mm.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Misleading advertising! - Only can power up to 124V AC and NOT 250V AC! I brought this product and trusted the relay in the bag in the shop is the same as advertised, once I got home I noticed it is actually a 941h-2c-5d relay which is only capable of 125V AC and not 250V AC as advertised. Not happy.

The picture shows 125 VAC but the description says 250 VAC, which one is correct??

Asked by: Dave
We use pictures for display purposes only, the specification will be the accurate figure.

&quot;Designed for operation on a 5V DC power source&quot; &quot;Coil voltage 12VDC&quot; These values seem to contradict each other - is that a typo, or am I missing something?

Asked by: sjoduk
Yes this is a 12vdc relay. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
