I've been reading up a bit on relays as I intend on using a few in a project I am working on. The basics of the project is turning on/off a 100w LED light at specific times. The light will consist of a single 100W COB (Chip On Board) LED that needs 34VDC~3A(max) to operate.
Is there an affordable/safe/reliable means to control larger loads? Well, I know there has to be. I guess I should be asking "What is an affordable/safe/reliable means to control larger loads?" I really don't like the thought of using the cheap Chinese relay board I bought (got it for testing code more than anything). And don't want to burn down my house either. :o
I've spent a bit of time searching the web this morning for a UL listed relay and not had much luck. It would appear they don't really test individual components all that much. I did find the PowerSwitch tail but it seems a bit pricey when I know there are waaayyy more cost effective options out there.
What should I be looking at? Point me in a direction folks.
