Almost any sensor can be used to trigger the relay to turn on or off. It can occur at set time intervals, it can be triggered from the press of a button, or even when you get an email. It covers all of the steps, diagrams, and code you need to get started. The other side has three low voltage pins Ground, Vcc, and Signal which connect to the Arduino. Normally Open vs. To use the normally open contacts, use the NO terminal.

Multi-dimensional Relays and so on, with varied ratings, sizes and applications. However, in this tutorial we will only be discussing about an electromagnetic relays. It is very popular relay among Arduino and DIY electronics hobbyists. This relay has 5 pins. When current flows through the coil of the relay, a magnetic field is created that causes a ferrous armature to move, either making or breaking an electrical connection. When the electromagnet is energized the NO is the one which is on and NC is the one which is off.
When the coil is de-energized the electromagnetic force disappears and the armature moves back to the original position turning on the NC contact. The closing and releasing of the contacts results in powering on and off of the circuits. You can do it either by connecting a multimeter to resistance measuring mode with a scale of ohm since the coil resistance normally ranges between 50 ohm and ohm or by using a battery.
Hence, the positive output of DC power supply can be connected to any one of the coil pins while negative output of DC power supply will be connected to the other pin of the coil or vice versa. If you ever get confused in figuring out which one is NO and which one is NC pin, follow the steps below to easily determine that: Set the multimeter to resistance measuring mode.
Turn the relay upside-down to see pins located at its bottom part. Only one of the pins will complete the circuit and will show activity on the multimeter. A LED is easy enough, but large power items such as light bulbs, motors, pumps or fans required more sneaky circuitry. You can use a 5V relay to switch the V current and use the Arduino to control the relay. A relay accomplishes this by using the 5V outputted from an Arduino pin to energize the electromagnet which in turn closes an internal, physical switch to turn on or off a higher power circuit.
The switching contacts of a relay are completely isolated from the coil, and hence from the Arduino. The only link is by the magnetic field. This process is called "Electrical Isolation". The coil of the relay needs a large current around mA to drive the relay, which an Arduino cannot provide. Therefore we need a device to amplify the current. The diode across the electromagnet conducts in the reverse direction when the transistor is turned off to protect against a voltage spike or the backward flow of current.
A current of about. The electromagnet then pulls the switching contact and moves it to connect the COM terminal to the NO terminal. In this example I am just turning on and off a LED. Step 7: The Code The code is very simple. Just start by defining the digital pin number 2 of the Arduino as the Relay pin.
This voltage spike can damage the sensitive electronic components controlling the circuit. One when the electromagnet is on and the second one when the electromagnet is off. Note: Short circuits on Arduino pins, or attempting to run high current devices from it, can damage or destroy the output transistors in the pin, or damage the entire AtMega chip.
Often this will result in a "dead" pin of the micro-controller but the remaining chip will still function adequately. I hope it helps you. If you want to support me, you can subscribe to my channel and watch my other videos. Thanks, ca again in my next video.
