What is the Event Relay Option?

  • Solid state relay board with up to 7 relays.
    • Connects to F4 controller's digital outputs.
  • Solid state relays to control remote AC devices.
  • Rated 24 to 240 VAC, 0.05 to 2.5 A each.
  • The solid state relays are just an AC switch. You have to provide the AC voltage source and the solid state relay will switch the source voltage to your load.
