Yes I have simple one but with all the usual funtions.
Sorry for the delays, but I'm in the middle of fitting out a kitchen!
I've sussed out the coil circuit which it states is 12v on the relay case, so as long as the relay is activated (it won't matter which is + or - (as I remember from my physics). The other nine pins are activated in batches of 3 for each of the three switches in the following sequence live,common and switched. These are shown on the semi-transparent case as being 240v, so I presume as I only want one relay to activate I can use any one of the three with a live in and live switched out.
Of choice I can use one side of the socket for 12v and the other 240v keeping them well apart. I'll then house the unit in an insulated 'box' for safety reasons.
Does this sound sensible? Sorry for the non technical lingo, I was a chartered civil engineer not electrical as I'm sure you can tell.
I've sussed out which set of 3 contacts I am going to use to enable me to keep the 12v system well away from the 240v.
I'll attach the Live 240v cable to the common terminal of the set and the N to the at rest contacts. Thus when the 12v is applied the coil will make the contact active and hence switch on the 240v supply.
I'll keep you posted as I hope to do the installation tomorrow.
It's done and working!
Ta for the pointers.
