FEATURES

  • Two versions*: PSTK-120 for 100-120vac devices and PSTK-240 for 200-240vac devices. Both provide single pole switching at 20 amps and 5300vrms isolation.
  • User provides power cords to match country of use. Cords solder directly to PCB pads or connect with optional euro style terminal blocks.
  • Wide control voltage range and low current requirements. Kit includes resistors to optimize the control voltage from 3 to 24vdc at 3-5 ma.
  • Connects directly to Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone or other 3.3 or 5 volt MCU without the need for driver transistor or buffer circuit and draws as little as 3ma @ 3vdc. Suitable for use with battery operated controllers.
  • Two wire signal connection. Does not require a separate dc power supply other than the control signal.
  • No exposed ac wiring when used with included case.
  • LED status indicator shows when control signal is present.

 

Kits include PCB, case, selected resistor values for control signal optimization and all components shown in above left picture. Power cords are not included. Soldering is required for assembly. See Rev 6A instructions.

 
Before ordering, please make sure you have or have access to the skills necessary to assemble and use this product. Always close the case and secure the top with the included screws before applying electrical power.
