• A compact relay perfect for projects and models
• Solder or plug into a relay base with eight pin terminals
• 5A switching capacity
• 12V coil voltage
• Double pole double throw design
• Model code: S8M-12VDC-2CPControl multiple output with one relay
Use this double pole double throw relay to switch between two outputs in two independent channels. With its pin terminals, you can solder this relay into your circuits or use a relay base (not included Order Code A09WZ) to make it easier to change relays. The clear cover on the relay lets you see its condition at a glance and the smaller size, 21mm x 27.3mm x 35mm means it can fit into even more projects. With its coil voltage of 12V it has a maximum switching power of 1200V with an operating range of 15ms and a release time of 10ms.
Switch two channels at the same time
Relays can be used to control higher powered circuits from lower powered circuits, this double pole double throw lets you control two outputs in two channels. When the relay has no power, the common is connected to the normally closed terminal, activating this side of the circuit. When power is applied to the relay the connection breaks and switches to the normally open circuit, closing it and making this side active instead. The double pole relay switches both channels outputs at the same time.
