    My Mini-BMS control board died, so I installing a dilithium BMS. I need to know if that does lithium BMS will shut off my Elcon TCCH-144-16 charger without the use of an external relay. My Mini-BMS system used to do this. If I do need a relay, what should I use? Thanks in advance for any help.

    The college I am at is currently revamping our electric vehicle. And while we do realize that in a normal vehicle (gas powered) there is normally a starter solenoid or relay. We were curious if the one in the vehicle was even needed. What would be the benefits/ downsides to having no starter...

    I have just built a voltage sensor relay that fits easily in an 8 pin octal enclosure (1.5"x1.5"x2"), with DPDT contacts rated at 8 amps 240 VAC. It draws only about 12-15 mA from the signal, which can be AC or DC. It is only programmed to turn on the relay at 160 VAC and off at 140 VAC, to...

    I'm looking for some thermal switch/relays to control my motor and controller fans, I recall seeing one similar to the one pictured here a while ago, for $8ish, I think from digikey (think I got the link from someone here), but can't seem to find it now. Anyone know where these can be had? Needs...
