I've got a straightforward question: I'm wanting to control a pump (120V AC) with my Pi. I tried using a Cyrdom SSR (info) but I now realize it is for resistive loads only. Is there a relay rated for motors I can directly control with GPIO pins on the Pi that will work with my pump? Anything else to know before wiring it up?
HP: 1/200 Voltage: 115V Current: 1.1A Wattage: 70W
The pump will be turning on for 1-5 seconds every few minutes (reliability is important).
