Would it be possible to replace a bank of 16 heavy duty 20A toggle switches with a RaspberryPi? Been reading up on driving relay circuits from the GPIO, but my knowledge of relays is not that great.

Please protect the Pi and YOURSELF. The Pi is NOT a drop-in replacment for this ,
but needs tested equipment along with it , i.e. relay boards with isolation made according to sound engineering principles. (Might become more expensive than readymade solutions not involving a Pi.)

• Don't like the board ? Missing features ? Change to the prosilver theme ! You can find it in your settings.
• Don't like to search the forum BEFORE posting 'cos it's useless ? Try googling : yoursearchtermshere site:raspberrypi.org
