Product Research


Overview: A relay is simply an electrically activated switch. Relays are used in a wide variety of automotive applications. This relay is composed of three contacts (terminals #30, #87A, and #87). Activating this relay is done with the coil (terminals #85 and #86). For auto security applications there are numerous features which require the use of a low-current relay such as Siren Chirp, WarnAway, Circuit Isolation, Trigger Inversion, Truck Release, and Temporary Sensor Disconnect. The 8616 relay is capable of handling 20A maximum across its normally open contacts and 10A maximum across its normally closed contacts.

Note: This relay is not intended for high current applications such as Starter Kill or Headlight Turn-On.

I have two amplifiers, and to not overload the trigger circuit in the head, I will wire this relay into the circuit. [ Andy  Aug 14, 2016 ]
