Best is to use a relay. I got a Gents masterclock (Hipp Toggle) and run the 30 second slave clocks through a relay.
I now have 1 Master and 2 Slaves running from a 12V supply.
There is enough resistance to limit the current to within spec
I am seeing arcing across the Master clock contacts. This
can't be good.
Is there a standard solution to this problem? If not, I would
add an RC snubber between the top terminal and the cast iron frame
from the back.
