This Art Controller Relay Kit from Evil Mad Scientist is a stand-alone relay board with an on-board ATtiny2313 microcontroller which governs timing and logic and possesses the ability to control a single electromechanical relay for switching loads of up to 24VDC or 40VAC. Each Art Controller comes equipped with a single pole - double throw (SPDT) sealed relay which can handle a current load of up to 5A (10A Normally Open). This means that when current is applied to the coil it throws a simple changeover switch, terminating the connection from the NC (Normally Closed) contact to ground and closing the NO (Normally Open) contact. Use them to switch high voltage/high current devices. This is a stand-alone, pre-programmed, board which is ideally used in projects where you need to switch and electronic load on or off with a relay and timer.

The Art Controller may look like your typical relay board but, in fact, it is more flexible in time range and functionality. Each controller is equipped with an 8-position DIP switch giving you the ability to select times from one second all the way to 31 hours. SInce the ATtiny2313 comes pre-programmed any adjustments to timing can be done through the DIP switch without any additional programming!

The Art Controller is sold as an easy-to-assemble kit and includes everything listed below with clear assembly instructions and additional tips listed in the documents section.

This kit was a collaboration between EMSL and a couple kinetic art sculptors who needed a simple board to control their art. Checkout some of CTP and Nemo Gould’s pieces!
