PowerSwitch Tail II
Cost: $28.95 each
Description: Want to control a standard wall outlet device with your micro controller, but don't want to mess with the high voltage wiring? This might just be the right device for you!
The PowerSwitch Tail II is designed to allow you to safely control an outlet device without exposing any 120VAC voltages. You can plug in any standard 120VAC 3-prong outlet to be controlled by most any microcontroller. This will work great with Arduino! The PowerSwitch Tail II improves on the original PowerSwitch Tail by allowing you to switch a bigger load (now up to 15A) with a wider range of control signals (3-12VDC).
Note: Due to an unforeseen manufacturing problem, we will be unable to replenish our stock until July, 2012 at the soonest. Sorry about that.
- Connect to Arduino, PIC, Stamp, or other MCU with driver transistor or ULN2803
- LED indicator shows status of control signal
- Connect output receptacle to a single powered device or to a power strip to control multiple loads.
- Switches up to 15A (resistive loads) with a 3-12VDC, 3-30mA control signal.
