USB Relay Card
USB relay is a very important requirement in any computer operated home automation or industrial automation system. As we can not connect any high voltage or high current equipment or system directly to our computer, we have to use some kind of connecting board which can act as a bridge between our computer and other equipment.
Though we can also use RS232 port, the old serial port, it has become now rare to find serial port on latest Laptops. USB port on other hand is available on every PC or laptop. So USB port is now widely used for connecting pc or laptop to outside world.
