  • I would strongly recommend using this relay (same footprint) with this PCB. It gives you proper spade terminals for the high current connections. I have replaced so many of these relays in different devices because they overloaded the bottom pins on the relay.

I have seen many many boards with this style of relay (mostly on PTAC window air conditioners/electric heaters) where the high current pins eventually burn out of the PCB because the trace isn’t deep enough and heats right around the relay pins. The spade lugs don’t seem to have this problem.

No public wish lists :(
