This week’s THE GREAT SEARCH comes to us by special request! A kindly person posted up in the forum asking us to make a Latching Power Relay FeatherWing Forums Link We have a latching relay wing already over at Latching Relay Link but its not very high current – rated at about 70 Watts, that means at 240VAC you can only switch 0.3A. Compare that to our Power Relay Wing, which can do an impressive 1200 Watts! https://www.adafruit.com/product/3191 Why would we make a latching version, what’s single/double winding? Lets learn & see what latching relays we can find that we could turn into a Wing!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
