You can protect your board by purchasing the 3820 - Acrylic Enclosure for the 3051.
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 1017 PhidgetInterfaceKit 0/0/8.
We also have a 4-Relay board that can plug directly into your PC. See the 1014 – PhidgetInterfaceKit 0/0/4.
