Is it possible to make ethernet shield control inputs/outputs over LAN? A website that has buttons for on/off etc?


What would be smart way to control 230V mains with 5V arduino? SSR isnt possible because it has to be NC-relay. If arduino fails etc that relay has to conduct.

Yes

Control outputs:

arduserver.com

Switch 230v:

Use a professionally designed, constructed relay solution, unless you need very rapid on/off switching.

(Thank you! The draft for that has been languishing in my "to do" pile for a long time! You inspired me to get it Out The Door!)

Why arduserver and not arduino + ethernet shield?

this mains socket type aint working for me. Its not gonna be a socket device, its a fixed device, house heater water pump.

How about a small 5V relay to control SSR relay? That way i could have NO operation and i think SSR would be right one for this?

Thre are various relay boards available that are made for use with microcontrollers, parallel ports, etc.

Hmmf.. I mean would it be best to use 5V relay to control the input of SSR? that way i can get NC operation. I dont need ready made 8 relay boards for that. I can make my own board with one relay. I just want to know are there any better way to do it?

Arduino controls 5V relay that switches SSR which is connected to AC motor.

Yes... but can you make one that will be safe at those voltages?

If you don't find a relays controlled with the 5V , you can also take one controlled at 12 V and use it with a BC337 transistor that could work as a switch.

Did u understand ?

Seems like it will be arduino controlling 12V or 5V relay that controls this http://www.vekoy.com/product_info.php?products_id=18141
3-phase contactor.

Or someone got better?
