I want to drive a 230v bulb with the help of a relay, so I soldered a 5v relay on a perforated board with a transistor driver circuit which is working perfectly fine. The relay I am using is HL JQC-3FC(T73) whose datasheet is here
But I would like to know what type of wire should I use for 230v ac appliances(Single strand or multistrand, the thickness etc).
Also I know that I cannot use two rails(for rails I mean the lead lines which I use to connect electronics components on my soldering board) which are side by side on the board which carry 230v ac voltages, so what should be the distances of such rails.
Thankyou for your time
