This is a diagram for a flashing relay. Normally used for automotive, I'm curious if I can get it to work with my needs.

I want to be able to start and continue the flasher with a 12V output, and while that output is on, flash a light bulb with a separate 12V supply.

Is that possible with this style relay?

So far as I can tell this flasher must be powered from the same supply that runs the lamps.

if you want to use a different supply for the lamps you couls have the flasher operate a relay use the relay to switch the lamp circuit,

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks for the input. I wanted to avoid using a 2nd relay if I could. I can easily use a 2 pin flasher to drive another single pole relay if it's really necessary. \$\endgroup\$ – brett s May 11 '19 at 2:25
