          A also have to laugh at the "professionals" who wouldnt buy such a type relay without a diagram.Now an IC or transistor, yes. but IF you know how to operate a VOM then you can determinte the coil and poles of a relay. The poles will have close to zero resistance on its closure, and the coil will have some resistenace as noted on the package, along with the pinout.

              Comments about RadioShack 125VAC/10A DPDT Plug-In Relay:

              I'm using this in a hobby lighting application as an OR gate, as I have a circuit I want to turn on when one of two others turns on. It works perfectly in this scenario. I have one input on the NO pins. And the other input on the NC pins and driving the coil.

              And for the record, though I had a basic understanding of relays before I attempted this implementation, I'd never designed one into a project. I was able to successfully do so without any more "schematic" information than what is silkscreened onto the relay itself. Very easy to implement.

                  Comments about RadioShack 125VAC/10A DPDT Plug-In Relay:

                  I used these relays for replacement controls in many diverse applications and they performed fine. The people that have had problems seem to be using them in DC applications. I suppose the thinking is that if the contacts are rated for 10 amps @ 125 VAC they should work fine for 20 ma @ 5 VDC. Well, they'll probably work for a while, but eventually the contacts will become "noisy". The explanation for why this occurs is to lengthy to explain here; take my word for it.

                  Further, the coil is an AC type. It relies on inductance to limit the current and, although it's not stated on the relay, it means 60 Hz. Operating it at another frequency will affect the overall impedance and it's ability to maintain contact closure.

                  So use it in it's intended application and you should have no problems. If you need to switch low current DC, consider a solid state solution; they're particular suited for this.

                    If you think you need a schematic to figure out if this is what you need...maybe you shouldn't be messing around with mains voltage. As for the guy who was burning up contacts, use the recommended coil voltage (120VAC), not 24VAC. They make relays in different coil voltages, please use the proper unit.

                        I have several of these relays & one application in particular stands out. One of these relays is used to switch a 1/2 horsepower pump motor on at dusk (photocell controlled) and off at dawn. This relay has been controlling the pump for 3 years now. Works great & no signs of wear, just like the other relays in lesser service.

                        I get a BIG LAUGH out of reading some of the self-described "Power Users" who want some kind of "pin-out" or "application data". You've GOT to be KIDDING..!? The case on the relay is CLEAR, making it trivially easy to SEE the connections to EVERY PIN. Not to mention the fact that this is a STANDARD form-factor for this type of relay.

                        I've got a hunch some of these "Power Users" couldn't get fresh batteries into a flashlight without LOADS of help!

                            I agree with others here, working in the electronics industry myself, I WOULD never purchase any type of item like a relay or IC that does not have an on-line diagram of it's connections.

                            This is asking for disaster because it may not fit your own use for the item, or may not fit a relay socket you may already own, since relay designs can change, this is unacceptable.

                            I tried using this to control an animatronic device that the main circuit board had failed in and was using them with some specialized controllers to animate it via software utilizing several of these relays (purchased in store where I could see the diagram), they failed miserably, they just could not hold up to the rigorous use I needed to put them through, and their contacts burned out. There was less than 20mA on the relay contacts, voltage was only 5-9 volts DC. For a 10amp rating, these seemed to fail miserably.

                              Purchased this several years ago for a project- turning on a cooling fan when my Playstation was running. Re-used it in a project to disengage the motor controller's high voltage when line voltage is cut. And for those complaining about a datasheet- it's a Siemen's K10P-11A15-120 (purchased by Tyco and now renamed TE connectivity) (or equivalent) and the datasheet is for the K10 series at [@] stop complaining.

                                          Used in a battery backup system to switch between two outputs.

                                          Pros: Works well did what I wanted

                                          Cons: None

                                          Other Thoughts: Its a Dual Pole Dual Throw relay, with a 120v coil. The coil is the two contacts on the bottom that are rotated 90 degrees, the others are the dual throws. If you need a schematic on the part look up how relays work. There is nothing different with this part than any other relay.
