Relay cord handbook


Relay cord handbook

A 12 AWG SSR cord is made by attaching a female electrical plug and a male electrical plug to 12 AWG cord to make a complete electrical cord and then cutting into the middle of the cord, cutting the black wire (the other two are white and green) and attaching it to an SSR (solid state relay).

When you attach a JeeNode (with the 22 guage wire) to one side and attach the ends of the exposed and cut black cord from the 12 AWG cord on the other side of the solid state relay, it allows the JeeNode to turn whatever you plug into the cord on and off, according to however the JeeNode is programmed (which could be to listen to instructions from the JeeLink, and hence your home computer).

The device being turned on and off could be any 120 volt device. It could be a heat stick but it could also be a corded drill for example.

The notebook section provides a way for you to store and share information with your group members. With the book feature you can:

  • Add book pages and organize them hierarchically into different books.
  • Attach files to pages to share them with others.
  • Track changes that others have made and revert changes as necessary.
  • Archive books that are no longer of interest to the group. Archived books can be reactivated later if needed.
