PowerSwitch Tail II
Want to control a standard wall outlet device with your micro controller, but don’t want to mess with the high voltage wiring? This might just be the right device for you!
The PowerSwitch Tail II is designed to allow you to safely control an outlet device without exposing any 120VAC voltages. You can plug in any standard 120VAC 3-prong outlet to be controlled by most any microcontroller. This will work great with Arduino! The PowerSwitch Tail II improves on the original PowerSwitch Tail by allowing you to switch a bigger load (now up to 15A) with a wider range of control signals (3-12VDC).
- Connect to Arduino, Raspberry Pi, or other MCU with driver transistor or ULN2803
- Connect output receptacle to a single powered device or to a power strip to control multiple loads.
- LED indicator shows status of control signal
- Switches up to 15A (resistive loads) with a 3-12VDC, 3-30mA control signal.
