I am trying to work on some home improvement DIY projects and trying to control light from an RPi / Arduino using USB connection. I've found two possible products, that I think might suit me:
However, I was not really sure how to exactly read the specs for the relays that are given on each website. The light that I am trying to control are going to operating at 12V drawing around 5A (60W bulbs). The specs that are given are:
- Relay specification: 10A 250VAC/10A 125VAC/10A 30VDC /10A 28VDC
- Power Supply: 12 VDC
- Current consumption: 300 mA
Thus I wanted to ask if somebody could enlighten me what the first line "Relay specification" means? Would it be able to handle 5A / 12V bulbs that I would want to connect to it?
Thank you very much to everybody.
