Relay plays an important role in automatic systems. Mini Relay module can be used in many system.


- Dimension: 50×30mm.

- Voltage of controller: 3.3V÷5V.

- Voltage of relay: 12V.

- Type of relay: 220V – 10A.

Figure 1: Dimension of board



- VLR: Voltage of relay.

- VCC: Voltage of controller.

- CTRL: Control signal.

- GND: Ground.


- NC: Normally Closed.

- NO: Normally Open.

- COM: Common terminal


- POWER: Indicate power supply.

- SIGNAL: Indicate control signal. Control signal is high level, SIGNAL LED turns off. Control signal is low level, SIGNAL LED turns on.

3.Operating principle

Figure 2: Operating principle of relay module

When control signal is low level, diode in U1 enables, U1 operates. U1 allows the current to pass through, the transistor Q1 is in saturation mode, and relay switches its status from “NC” to “NO”. LED LD1 turns on. When control signal is high level, diode in U1 disables, U1 doesn’t operate. U1 permits the current to pass through, the transistor Q1 is in cutoff mode, and relay is in normal mode “NO”. LED LD1 turns off.

  1. Hello! I could have sworn I've been to this site before
    but after checking through some of the post I realized it's new to me.
    Anyhow, I'm definitely glad I found it and I'll be
    book-marking and checking back often!

  2. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
    I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  3. Hi there, of course this paragraph is actually fastidious and I have learned lot of things from it about blogging. thanks.| Chantalle Rockwell Trocki
