This is an upgrade for the basic robot power distribution board. The module features additional power outputs and a second control power relay. Perfect for more advanced solutions. The module features screw terminal connectors for your control and drive batteries, charging, power switch, and external LED. A low current switch can be wired to the designated switch header to control the smaller 10A relays. The adjacent LED header is equipped with a 1k resistor so an external LED can be wired directly to the circuit board.
The 10A relays supply power to (12) 0.100" friction lock headers. An optional connector kit can be found on the bottom of this page. The 30A relays have (3) high current outputs with 5.0mm screw terminals. The 30A relay also supplies power to (6) additional low current 0.100" friction lock headers.
The 30A relay's coil is brought out to the adjacent header. This can be connected to the output of the 10A relays or a high current driver (TE-010-800) can be used to control the relay with a microcontroller like an Arduino.
Included in this Kit:
These are high quality sealed Single Pole - Single Through (SPST) relays. This relay's coil is rated for 12V.
This is a High current driver that will take TTL signals from your Arduino, etc to drive the relays. It includes status LEDs for each input. 5V, 12V, and 24V relay options are available. This item replaces TE-010-405 and TE-010-412
SparkFun's minimal design approach to Arduino. This is a 5V Arduino running the 16MHz bootloader.
