            Comments about RadioShack Compact 5VDC/1A SPST Reed Relay:

            1 amp is the rated max current, and 0.5 amp is the rated max switching current. That means you can run a max of 0.5A though it while switching it on and off. Any more than that can weld the contacts and make it "stick" on. But it can handle up to 1A current while not switching it.

                I use the relay to control a 10W synchronous ac motor. After over 35,000 actuations, the relays are still working fine.

                  The web site says 1A, the package says 0.5A and the technical specs say 10W which equates to 0.1A. Which is it?????

                        This relay sticks on a lot of the time. I had this relay controlling a buzzer (Radioshack# 273-057). The circuit rang the buzzer for about 10 seconds every day. For about a week, this worked fine, then the relay would stick on, and not shut off the buzzer. This proved to be a persistent issue, so i replaced this with another, non reed, relay. That has worked perfectly ever since.

                                The relay is used to control the shutters on astronomical observatory. The relay is connected to a Rain and Cloud sensor.

                                When the sensor is triggered the relay is actuated and the dome's shutters are closed automatically providing protection for the equipment inside. This relay has been in use for over 5 years and has proven its reliability.

                                    OMG!... I've got a few of these relays that I bought 30 YEARS ago, and they still work great. I was just using one for my kid's science fair project. Good to see they are still available. With a 250 ohm coil, they don't suck up much juice. Great for interfacing to logic.

                                          I used these relays in a robot but they continued to stick, completely depleting the batteries several times and the only way to fix them was to hit them. they're cheap but not very operable.
