  • OK. So I got this relay a few months ago for a project I was planning but didn’t read through the comments. I am wanting it to run a 115v, 1.5amp compressor. I know the compressor spikes but thought this relay would be plenty.

    Is this relay safe for my application?

    Also, is it only a problem if I use screws in the mounting holes? I am planning on housing the relay in a plastic box (an old laptop power supply box). Would this help with safety?

    Any help would be appreciated. I want to leave this circuit on for long lengths of time and don’t want it to have a good chance of burning my apartment down!

No public wish lists :(
