Re: Question about using the RPi with a relay.

pksato wrote:5V from RPI GPIO header. Pin 2 or 4.
Current from this 5V is limited by F3 polyfuse.
You can't draw more that around 100mA from these pins.
Relay SRD-05VDC-SLC coil draw 71.4mA.

To power relay board, need 285.6mA. (with all relay activated)
