Re: Load1 36v down to 12v

Doug any recommendations for a relay that I can use for the load 1 output which is 3.3volts?

3.3v trigger 36v from the power supply
or
3.3 trigger 24v after the convertor

Solid state relay?

Extra Offsets

Hi Doug,
A lot of the time I have 3 or even 4 jobs on the cnc table at any one time.
