Raspberry Pi Not Included!
The RPi Relay Board provides your Raspberry Pi the ability to control high voltage and high current devices, easily adding intelligence to your regular home appliances.
RPi Relay Board Features
- Supports Raspberry Pi A+/B+/2B/3B
- High quality relays, loads up to 250VAC/5A, 30VDC/5A
- Photo coupling isolation, prevent interference from high voltage circuit
- Onboard LEDs for indicating relays status
- Relay control jumper, allows to control the relays by custom pins other than the default pins
- Comes with development resources, including examples in wiringPi, WebioPi, shell, python, and bcm2835
RPi Relay Components
- Raspberry Pi GPIO pin header
- Relay screw terminal: for connecting target devices
- Photocoupler: PC817
- Relay indicator
- LED on: relay NC is opened, NO is closed
- LED off: relay NC is closed, NO is opened
- short the jumper: control the relays by default I/Os used in the example code
- open the jumper: control the relays by custom I/Os through jumper wires
