Advanced Notification of Interruption to Shipping
We are now expecting to move to our new premises in Rugby during the last week in November. During the move, we will not be shipping any orders out for the period Tuesday 25th November to Tuesday 2nd December. Last shipping day will be Monday 24th November and re-commence Wednesday 3rd December. Orders placed after 12 noon GMT on the 24th will be processed from the 3rd December
Whilst our machine shop is re-located, we are unable to carry out machining modifications on gears, sprockets, pulleys etc. Any order placed which includes machining options is unlikely to be processed until mid December.
PicoSwitch plugs into a standard hobby radio control receiver as easily as a servo does. You connect the load that you want to toggle using PicoSwitch's wear resistant screw terminals. Depending on the channel you use, you will then be able to control the relay by moving your radio's control stick up or down, left or right, or another method you desire.
Picoswitch has a status LED on the bottom. The LED will light up when the relay switch is on, and vice versa. It will also tell you if your radio link is too weak by flashing repeatedly.
The relay is a single pole single throw switch. Its typical lifetime is 100,000 to 1,000,000 switching cycles, depending on how heavy a load you are using. The relay is normally open when unpowered.
PicoSwitch does not supply power at the screw terminals.
PicoSwitch should not be used to switch inductive loads like motors or solenoids without an antiparallel diode.

Max relay voltage: 60VDC, 125VAC
Max relay current: 1A @ 24VDC, 0.5A @ 125VAC (60W lightbulb)
Relay resistance: 100 mOhms max
3.5V to 5.5V operating voltage (on servo pigtail)
30mA typical draw from receiver
Note: PicoSwitch has a maximum voltage rating of 125VAC, meaking it unsuitable for toggling 230VAC (UK) applications.
