I have to switch a 230 Volt single AC-phase motor (0,18 kW / 2,8 Amp).
I tried to use a solid state relay, but (too late) I read that it can't function.
Now I intend to use a relay. On internet you see frequently a tiny PCB with a mini relay (specs 10 A at 250 V), see enclosed photo. I can connect it directly to my Arduino Nano.
Has anybody experience with this relay to switch an induction motor?
(the relay doesn't seem robust).
In stead of switching the motor via the tiny relay (option A in the drawing), I can use the tiny relay as an interface for a normal contactor (option B).
Has anybody a good tip?
