I have a situation where I'd like to delay the closing of an off the shelf relay by ~5 seconds. Assuming it is a 5V coil, and switching 12 V, I'd like the following:
t 0:00: 5v applied to input, relay switch open. t 0:05: coil closed, relay switch closes.
I think some simple RC network may do the trick, but I'm struggling to imagine the right configuration. Any ideas?
