BattleSwitch radio controlled 10A relay
BattleSwitch is the larger, 10A version of our popular PicoSwitch.
BattleSwitch is a relay switch that you toggle via hobby radio
control gear. You can use BattleSwitch to quickly and easily control
glow plugs, BattleBot weaponry and more. You can activate applications
with voltage levels as high as 240VAC without having to know anything about
microcontroller logic levels or transistors because the relay offers
full electrical isolation from your receiver electronics.
BattleSwitch plugs into a standard hobby radio control receiver as
easily as a servo does. You connect the load that you want to toggle
using BattleSwitch's wear resistant screw terminals. Depending on the
channel you use, you will then be able to control the relay by moving
your radio's control stick up or down, left or right, or another method
BattleSwitch has a status LED on the bottom. The LED will light
up when the relay switch is on, and vice versa. It will also tell you
if your radio link is too weak by flashing repeatedly.
The relay is a single pole double throw switch. Its typical
lifetime is 100,000 switching cycles, depending on how
heavy a load you are using.
BattleSwitch does not supply power at the screw terminals.
