Qwiic Single Relay Hookup Guide
The Qwiic Single Relay is SparkFun’s easiest to use relay yet. The single relay can handle up to 5.5A at 240 VAC for long periods of time. The Qwiic connectors and screw terminals also mean that no soldering is necessary.
To get started, you’ll need a microcontroller to control everything. You may not need everything though depending on what you have. Add it to your cart, read through the guide, and adjust the cart as necessary.
Now to get into the Qwiic ecosystem, the key will be one of the following Qwiic shields to match your preference of microcontroller:
You will also need a Qwiic cable to connect the shield to your Qwiic Single Relay, choose a length that suits your needs.
You will need a flush cutter and wire stripper to remove the sheath and insulation from a cable. A Phillips head screwdriver will be required to connect the load's to a screw terminal.
