I need to control two 10A, 240V supplies independently with a relay. I am using an 8bit AVR. I have yet to choose the one.
So I went to jaycar (an electronics supply store) and I bought a relay on advice.
Well it seems to require 12V to switch ^&%$^%
I can't find a clear spec for it.
So can I use this relay, is there a better option that I can use (I am space constricted). Is there any advice you guys can give me on switching relays with a microprocessor ?
PS: This is my first project that I will post here if and when I finish
