PicoSwitch radio controlled relay
PicoSwitch is a relay switch that you toggle via hobby radio
control gear. You can use PicoSwitch to quickly and easily control
anything from a digital camera shutter to an electric squirt gun to
home lighting and more. You can activate applications with voltage
levels as high as 125VAC without having to know anything about
microcontroller logic levels or transistors because the relay offers
full electrical isolation from your receiver electronics.
PicoSwitch plugs into a standard hobby radio control receiver as
easily as a servo does. You connect the load that you want to toggle
using PicoSwitch'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
Picoswitch 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 single throw switch. Its typical
lifetime is 100,000 to 1,000,000 switching cycles, depending on how
heavy a load you are using. The relay is normally open when
PicoSwitch does not supply power at the screw terminals.
PicoSwitch should not be used to switch inductive loads like motors or
solenoids without an antiparallel diode.
