I’m desperatly trying to switch on/off a dancing Santa Claus using an Arduino. The circuit is really simple. I tried with a MOC3021 optocoupler with no luck. I tried with a 5V relay (FRS10C-S12), no luck either.
I attached an example of the circuit (again, it’s really simple).
I’m thinking the MOC302 optocoupler can’t handle a 500 mA current. What should I use then ?
