Thanks guys I really appreciate the help with this.Brandon92 wrote: ↑Sun Jan 06, 2019 7:55 pmPersonally, I would not add the relay contacts parallel to each other.pcmanbob wrote: ↑Sun Jan 06, 2019 7:16 pmThis relay will switch 7A of resistive load at 240V AC which is about 1600W and seeing as it has 4 contacts you could common them together to switch even more.

you can better use the version with less contacts: https://uk.farnell.com/finder/55-32-9-0 ... dp/2787151
I've ordered some of the 55-32's - slightly cheaper from rapid (using my education account) as I needed a few other bits & pieces from there anyway - they have a lead time of 5-7 days - which is ok for me as I'm back to work tomorrow & probably need to dedicate a few weeks attention away from my project & towards work & my own family and at the moment
I'll let you know how I get on with it.
