Relay between powercord and DC connector

Recommended Posts

Posted · Relay between powercord and DC connector

I'm trying to connect a relay between the DC connector and the powecord on my Ultimaker so I can turn it on and off via my Raspberry Pi and Octoprint. I've found a DC plug, both male and female, in a local store. The plug specification is 4A, the output on the AC adapter is 6.1A, if I remember correctly. So my question is if it's possible to use the DC plugs anyway or if I should look for a different solution?

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
