About

The Relay Shield allows your OpenMV Cam to directly control two high-power DC and AC loads up to 60W each. It features two independent relays, which are controlled by P0 and P2 (or P1). This allows you to use the relay shield in combination with the CAN/RS232 Shield or RS422/RS485 shield, which uses P1 (or P2) and P3. If you don't need a relay, you can free up the I/O pin too. The relays can be set to be normally closed or normally open (default) independently by changing a solder-bridge jumper.

Better yet! The shield features a wide voltage range 6-36V input, which is robust to reverse voltage and features robust transient surge protection. Use this input to power your OpenMV Cam from 12/24V power supplies without having to worry about damaging your camera. The wide range voltage supply outputs 5.4V on VIN via an OR'ing diode so you can power your OpenMV Cam from multiple shields with OR'ing diodes (e.g. all of our dual header column shields).

The shield also features a robust 0-5V ADC input (AIN) that outputs 0-3.3V to your OpenMV Cam on P6. The input is robust to reverse voltage and features overvoltage protection (tested up to +/-36V). By shorting a solder bridge jumper on the board, which supplies a 240 ohm load on the input, you can work in 4-20mA mode. If you don't need the ADC input, you can disconnect it from P6, too.

Finally, the shield features a robust 0-5V digital input/output. The SYN pin is tolerant to reverse voltage (tested with -12V), shorting to ground, and shorting to 12V. By default, SYN acts as a digital input driving P10 in Open-Drain Mode so that you can support input triggering from multiple sources, all driving P10. Alternatively, you can switch SYN to be a digital output driving 0-5V for triggering devices from your OpenMV Cam instead of being triggered by them. So, whatever your use case is for triggering, the shield accommodates. If you don't need the trigger input/output, you can disconnect it from P10, too.

This shield is compatible with all OpenMV Cam models.

Applications

You can use the relay shield to turn on outdoor lights, for example, when your OpenMV Cam wakes up after detecting motion via the PIR shield.
