Just to follow up for anyone interested in a relay AC power switch, they are back in stock at Amazon:Another idea that I have used quite a bit, is to modify a computer outlet strip to use an SSR similar to:
I modified to outlet strip to use the SSR to activate the power and drive the input circuit directly from and Arduino or in this case, a RigPi.
I use these to power off all of my computer peripherals (monitor, speaker, etc.) when I power off my computer. SSR is driven off the 5v of the computer. I also, have one that is driven off the Arduino that switches DC power on my K3 power supply, speakers & rotor (the Arduino also automatically switches my antennas, following the K3).
