Door lock shield and relay

Post by nitram » Fri Mar 28, 2014 12:29 pm

When using the Door Lock Shield to fire an electric door strike, do I need to use a relay or do I connect the door strike directly to the strike terminals on the shield with 12 v connected to the other terminals?
Regards

You can connect a 12V strike directly to the shield, please see:
