Haven't been on for awhile, but had to stop by to share this:


And to make it more on topic, yes I used my Rigol DS1052EXXXX DS1100E to get this working.

One seriously cool relay project is the mechanical tabletop Pong game made entirely out of relay logic.  Nuts.

Those are cool. I posted the "how to" for mine at http://www.awce.com/rlyco.html.

The code would be pretty easy to port to any PC general purpose I/O board you wanted.

So... what's the clock frequency on one of these 1hz? 2hz?

Much bigger one: http://web.cecs.pdx.edu/~harry/Relay/ (That guy is a wizard. :D)

Some of the tiny reed relays can switch much faster, in the hundreds of Hz range, but that's still ridiculously slow compared to transistors.
