Features

Overview: The SPDT (single-pole, double throw) relay is a switch controlled by a voltage input instead of a mechanical action. By sending current through the relay, you can turn a device on or off without touching the device. The relay consists of two parts: the relay, which includes a 5-blade socket, and the 5-blade plug with 5 wires. It has a capacity for up to 30 Amps.

Typical Applications:

  • Relay Turn-On: for turning on/off high-current devices such as multiple amplifiers or neon lights
  • Relay Turn-Off: for turning off or disabling a device such as a vehicle's starter system (in conjunction with a security system)
  • Remote Trunk Release: for remote control opening of a vehicle trunk (in conjunction with a security system--requires existing power-assisted trunk release)
  • Power Door Lock System: for remote control locking/unlocking of vehicle doors (in conjunction with a security system and aftermarket power door locks)

Wiring Considerations: Installation of this relay requires soldering of the connections. Installation of a 30-amp fuse and fuse holder may be required near the battery connection.
