A relay can be used to switch higher power devices such as motors and solenoids. If desired, the relay can be powered by a separate power supply, so, for instance, 12V solenoids can be controlled by the microcontroller.

Activate a Relay

The following program will activate a FET or Darlington transistor connected to output B.1, which in turn will activate the relay, for a second every five seconds.

Code Example:
main: 	high B.1 	; Switch on output B.1 
	pause 1000 	; Wait 1 second 
	low B.1 	; Switch off output B.1 
	pause 5000 	; Wait 5 seconds 
	goto main 	; Loop back to start
