Particle Relay Shield for Photon

The description in Adafruit reads " DISCONTINUED" for the relay shield. Is this information accurate?
If so, are there any other boards around with similar functionality that you guys are using?

Thank you,

Hi @gusgonnet -

I made my own as I wanted to incorporate the relay into the PCB due to size restrictions. That and I enjoy designing PCB’s :smile:

For higher currents (240V, 15A) I used OMRON relays with NPN transistor as per this post and for lower voltages (<24V) I loved using Reed relays as can been seen in this post.

Hope this helps!!


alright! Thanks for the reference, Friedl. The project looks very very cute and professional, congrats

NCD has an absolutely huge selection of relays for the Photon and other Particle devices.
