  • DoubleSwitch Radio Controlled Relay
    Great product
    Review by Stephen
    I am using this on an RC model Tug, It works very well.
    but I wish there was an On - Off - on version available as well.

  • BattleSwitch Radio Controlled Relay - DE-01
    LED spotlight
    Review by Larry
    I needed a way to turn on a 9 LED spotlight on my
    robot.The battle switch is perfect for the job! It has a small form factor and is very easy to install in your bot.
    I will be ordering more of these because You can use them to control just about anything with your rc xtmtr.
    Thanks Robotshop!

  • RGB LED Strip Driver Shield
    Easy to wire - Work just like it should - A++
    Review by Eric Nantel - DiaLFonZo
    Got this for a Bluetooth LED Strip project and it is the perfect match to any RGB Strips. Work very nice and make wiring as easy as it can with push in connector for the strips.

  • 8-Channel 5V Relay
    Great product at a great price, just what I wanted.
    Review by Pat
    I used this relay board with the SSC-32 controller for an animatronic Halloween prop and it performs just as I hoped it would. RobotShop was easy and quick, their support staff was great.

  • Devantech 8-Channel, 1A Optically Isolated USB Relay Module
    As good as it gets!
    Review by GiGa
    Does perform exactly as expected, good quality components.

    To integrate it in our design we required RoHS certificate and 3D dimensions, response from Devantech support was very fast and complete.

A relay is best if you don't need to vary the speed or direction. If you do need to change the direction or speed, then you'll need a motor controller:
