Using a relay to handle European voltages with controllers

The BooBox, PicoBoo controllers, Wireless Trigger, and other similar devices with relays are designed to switch on devices that are rated less than 10 amps and less than 110vAC.  If you need to control a device that is greater than 10 amps or greater than 110vAC  you will need to use a relay that can handle the load. FrightProps does not carry the required relays for your country's specific voltage.  You will need to obtain those locally.  

Use a relay that can handle the VOLTAGE and AMPERAGE of the load that you will be using.  It must also have a 12v DC coil that activates it.  Note: The two POWER plugs should both be plugged in to an outlet or power strip at all times.  

IMPORTANT! DO NOT WIRE 220-230v AC DIRECTLY INTO THE CONTROLLER OUTPUTS!  WIRE AS SHOWN IN THIS DOCUMENT USING A DC POWER SUPPLY.
