EASY PLUG Super Starter Kit For Arduino Project 5: Relay

Posted by Fiona Su on

Overview
In this project, we will show you how to control a relay module. This relay module uses a high-quality relay. A relay is basically an electrically controlled mechanical switch. It can be used to interactive projects.
Component Required:
  • EASY plug control board*1
  • EASY plug Single Relay Module *1
  • RJ11 cable*1
  • USB cable*1

Component Introduction:


This EASY Plug relay module uses a high-quality relay. A relay is basically an electrically controlled mechanical switch.
It is one of the most important controlled elements, which is widely used to control the lighting, communications, remote sensing, electrical and other equipments. The Relay output state by a light-emitting diode, observing the relay ON and OFF status.
It can be controlled through the digital IO port, such as lamps, motors and other high current or high voltage devices.

What You Should See
Done uploading the code, you should be able to hear the relay contacts click. When the relay is off, the COM (common) terminal block will be connected to the NC (Normally Closed) terminal block.
When the relay is on, the COM (common) terminal block will be connected to the NO (Normally Open) terminal block.
