    Hello everyone
    I have been looking for a relay solution to control some devices such as garage door opener and AC interface.
    It's going to be installed in a data cabinet so 5504RVF is not really suitable due to it's 240V supply terminals.
    SPST would be OK but SPDT contacts could be handy.
    I found this RS232 relay which seems reasonably priced and hoped to control it with a PAC.

    It would need a power supply for the RS232 on the PAC.
    After some reading on the forum I am concerned about damaging the PAC and was looking at this isolating device which I think could also provide power for the PAC's RS232 instead of trying to find a 24VAC supply.
    Any thoughts appreciated.

    So I was hoping someone who has done this before might be able to give a few recommendations.
    Or is there a suitable CBus product?
    No being much of a programmer I can't quite understand this requirement of the relay though I suspect it would be no problem for the PAC.
    And this is how I thought it would look in pascal.
    Code:
     OpenSerial(1, 1, 9600, 8, 1, scNoFlowControl, scNoParity);
     WriteSerial(1, '254, 0');
    Thanks

    Have you considered the L5108RELVP? It's bus-powered and can switch up to 30V ac or dc on it's 8 channels. The output contacts are change-over contacts giving lots of flexibility.

    Some discussion on it here.

    Hello Newman
    I do remember reading about that product but I couldn't find it on Clipsal web site and I forgot what is was called.
    That should do the trick.
    Thanks
