DoubleSwitch radio controlled dual 8A relay
DoubleSwitch is a doubled version of our popular BattleSwitch.
DoubleSwitch is a relay switch that you toggle via hobby radio
control gear. You can use DoubleSwitch 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.
DoubleSwitch plugs into a standard hobby radio control receiver as
easily as a servo does. You connect the loads that you want to toggle
using DoubleSwitch's wear resistant screw terminals. Depending on the
channel you use, you will then be able to control the relays by moving
your radio's control stick up or down, left or right, or another method
DoubleSwitch 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 double pole double throw switch. Its typical
lifetime is 100,000 switching cycles, depending on how
heavy a load you are using.
DoubleSwitch does not supply power at the screw terminals.
