Relay between powercord and DC connector

Recommended Posts

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?

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
