Control 8 DPDT mechanical relays, switching up to 250VAC/2A or 120VDC/2A.
The PhidgetInterfaceKit 0/0/8 provides Small Signal Relays with 8 Relay Outputs, rated at 250VAC, or 2 Amps, for a maximum of 60 Watts. While typical mechanical relay boards are unable to switch signals due to an oxide buildup on the contacts, the 1017 excels at switching both signals and low-power applications.
