magnetic switches

Postby P Webster » Sat Mar 15, 2014 4:35 am

Does anyone know of a supplier of magnetic reed switch and relay assemblies suitable for switching on the complete system of the sub (ie main battery and receiver battery.
I am also looking at using 3 x 2v 8amp Cyclon batteries instead of the recommended 6v 12amp SLA battery. Except for the reduced running time can anyone see any other problems this could cause?

I use these Relays,
1 in my Seawolf and 2 in parallel in my U47, with one reed contact per coil.
Never had any problems with them.

Get door switches off ebay. $1.50 each. Add a couple of relays and you have the perfect thing.
