Product Description

Monk Makes Relay for the BBC micro:bit

The MonkMakes Relay for the BBC micro:bit is a solid-state (no moving parts) relay that allows an output of a micro:bit to turn things on and off.

A micro:bit can turn an LED on and off directly, but anything more powerful requires something like a relay or a transistor. Using a transistor to switch something on and off requires a shared ground connection with the micro:bit and a knowledge of electronics that you or your students may not be ready for. The Monk Makes Relay for the BBC micro:bit is much easier to use, acting like a simple micro:bit controlled switch.

This relay can be used to switch low voltage devices such as light bulbs, a motor, a small heating element or even a string of 12V LED lighting. The voltage needs to be kept under 16V, but the relay will automatically protect itself against too much current.

Features

  • Solid-sate relay (up to 2 Amps)
  • Active LED indicator
  • Resettable ‘polyfuse’ to protect against over-current

Contents

  • 1x Monk Makes Relay Board
Note: The Monk Makes Relay for the BBC micro:bit does NOT include a BBC micro:bit. The BBC micro:bit board will need to be purchased separately.
