The MOSFET Power Switch is an essential tool for Arduino users who need to control high voltage items such as a 12V LED strip, while simultaneously powering their control board. This product allows you to power the board with up to 12V and control up to 10A, all while providing 3.3V to your control board. This eliminates the need for multiple power adapters, making your project more streamlined and efficient.
The MOSFET Power Switch is perfect for activating large loads such as solenoids, LED strips, and DC loads that may have back EMF. You can easily activate the load by pulling the CTL pin low. The board also provides 3.3V, GND, and VCC at PTH headers. The load can be inserted into the poke-home connectors or soldered into PTH holes, providing you with flexibility in your project setup.
The MOSFET Power Switch uses a PSMN7R0-100BS, which is rated to 100A/100V. However, it is recommended to not exceed 10A, as the PCB traces become the limiting factor. This ensures the longevity and safety of your project.
As a product of SparkX, the MOSFET Power Switch represents the latest in cutting-edge technology. Although SparkX products are tested, they come with no guarantees and live technical support is not available. However, you can always visit the forum for support or to ask a question.
