|1014_1 - PhidgetInterfaceKit 0/0/4 - Discontinued|
- 4 Relay Outputs for switching AC or DC power
- Rated at 250VAC, 10 Amps or 100VDC, 5 Amps
- Connects directly to a computer’s USB port
Replaced by the 1014 - PhidgetInterfaceKit 0/0/4.
The PhidgetInterfaceKit 0/0/4 Provides a convenient way to interface your PC with various higher-voltage devices such as incandescent bulbs, high-power relays, and motors
The 1014 contains 4 Relay Outputs for switching AC or DC power; the relays are Single Pole Double Throw (SPDT).

|Device Active Current Consumption||300mA max|
|Operating Temperature||0 - 70°C|
Note: All relay contacts will slowly oxidize over time, depending on their construction. When the relay is switched, a certain amount of electricity is required to break through the oxide layer. The relays on the 0/0/4 have a minimum switching current of 100mA @ 5VDC, and therefore are not suitable for switching signals.
If you are looking for a product to do signal switching see the 1017 - PhidgetInterfaceKit 0/0/8.
If you already have a 1018 – PhidgetInterfaceKit 8/8/8 you might want to have a look at the 3051 – Dual Relay Board and save yourself some money.
Comes packaged with
- A 3001 - 180cm USB Cable
- A Hardware mounting kit (4 nuts and bolts, 4 plastic spacers)
