Wiring Cheap relays ?

Actually, this is directed to Outlaw, but it would be good public knowledge.....

What are the individual terminals on the Bosch relays to be wired to?

Are the #'s on the terminals universal? Is 86 the same on all relays for instance?

I see there is a "schematic" on the relay, but I don't understand it.....

Re: Wiring Cheap relays ?

From my previous experience with relays, the terminal numbers are generally the same. Although I'm not sure what your trying to wire, crow, take a look at this schematic. It may provide the answers your looking for.
Electric Fan Relay Schematic
The symbols on the relay and the numbers should be similar to the ones in the link I provided. If the image is difficult to see in your web browser, print it. It came out fine when I did it at home. Hope this helps!

Re: Wiring Cheap relays ?

If the schematic is too small, hover your mouse over it. There should be a little button that pops up in the bottom right side of it. Click the buttom and it'll go to something that should be easy to view.

Re: Wiring Cheap relays ?

The schematic is not too small, just the way that your viewing it. It's actually a .jpg image and it fills most of a sheet of paper. That's why I suggested printing it. Or save it and use a different viewer than internet explorer. I suggest IrfanView. It's freeware and does an excellent job of displaying graphic images.

Re: Wiring Cheap relays ?

if you shut off "automatic image resizing" in internet explorer it will solve the issue, too.

Re: Wiring Cheap relays ?

hey crow
i can tell you how to wire a relay to do about anything you want and can explain it so youll understand
lets say you wanted to turn on a set of fog lights or electric fan
then you would put 12v+ to pin 30
pin 86 would be from the switch (throwing 12+)
pin 85 would be ground
and pin 87 would be output to light or fan
ps pin 87a not used

pin 87
-----
pin 86 ---- ---- pin 85

l pin 30


this is how the relay works
the pins 30 and 87a are connected together (normaly closed)when the relay is at rest
the pins 86 and 85 are connected together with a coil of wire and
when 12+ and ground are applied to the 86 and 85 they make a magnetic field and switch pins 30 and 87a to pins 30 and 87

i have alot of info on this subject if you would like it i can email it to you
hope this helps
andy
ps glad to see ya back steve
