AC Powered 3 way Relay Node
Boards can be found at Dirtypcbc
This is an ATmega328p-pu based board that has been created to enable wireless switching of 3 devices, it was designed for lighting needs, but pretty much any 110-240v AC powered device will work.
This device was designed to be installed in wall switch to be close to the existing switches, however you could use this outside of this application but either enclosure the device in a container that stops any access to the live power entering the board and even the screw terminals. Not safe to be around personal, especially children as there will also be no strain relief on the cables.
The module has been designed to work with EU/US Mains, so it has a Live and a Neutral input. The module itself is self-powered from the mains power input and is fused with a slow blow on the main input meaning any short on the board for any reason will cause the slow blow fuse to cut. Alongside of this, the relay channels are also protected with a 2-6A fuse themselves, meaning that any issues with the connected devices pulling any more than 2-6A will automatically cut out. Also available the option to attach 3 switches to the device to switch the attached devices on-board rather than using wireless switches or automatically switching the devices. This allows us to route a switch to the device just like a normal light switch would.
nRF24L01 Radio Transceiver to communicate to MySensors gateway
This device is self-powered through an on-board transformer using the 120-240VAC Input to step down to 5V.
MYSBootloader running at 8MHz Internal osc to enable the use of OTA updates.
You can use header1 to connect a serial programmer, pin 1 (from left) is the dtr pin so you will need a 0.1 cap in series before connected to serial programmer DTR pin, next is RX then TX and the last pin (first from right) is ground. Please note that you will need the board connected to mains power to be able to program it from serial.
The switches connector is a bit close to the HLK depending on the connector you are using it might be a tight fit.
This project was inspired by the "AC-DC double solid state relay module" project by Aproxx
