Re: accessory decoders to drive relays

John Coker

After looking again at the output capability of the various stationary
decoders, 160mA seems high. I found this "low signal" relay from
Mouser which seems more appropriate:

The Omron G5A-234P-DC12 only draws 16.7mA at 12VDC. (They have an
even lower signal one that draws 12.5mA, the "high sensitivity" version.)

These relays should be able to be driven by any stationary decoder,
including the popular NCE Switch-It.

Now, if someone can suggest appropriate diodes to be used with this
relay, I'll be set.
