I bought an arduino kit, and it came with, amongst other things, a 5v relay to control 120-220v.
The relay is only that, there is only the 5 pin relay, and it's not on a board on which one can screw in the leads
I was wondering how I can use it.. i.e. how do I mount it somehow (especially since the leads are metric and most perf board is standard (or vice-versa)).
I don't mind soldering the 5v control leads from the arduino, but I'm not so sure about soldering or connecting 110v straight on the relay. i'm worried about long term longevity.
I have soldered longer leads just to be able to fit it on a board for tests, but those are tiny, and aren't safe for higher voltage/current.
Any suggestions? Thanks, Seb.
