The easiest way I have found is to drive the LED half of an optoisolator. Connect the output side to the relay and its source. I use the H11G2 (just because I have them around).+-------+ PIC OUT---| |--+--RELAY--+- High voltage | | | | | H11G2 | '--DIODE>-' ,--| |--, | | | | \|/ +-------+ \|/ GND GND
Paul B. Webster says:And you *did* mean to put a resistor in series with the opto input, did you not? And the diode across the relay?
