This is basically the same as the other relays, as standard the coils are in series, we change them to parallel.

Here's the Relay:

Relay PartNo


Relay Conns



To modify for 12v operation there are 3 steps.
1: Cut the track between white wires on both white connectors on top pcb.
2: Solder wire links under these headers to parallel the coils.
3: Swap three wires (blue,brown and white) wiring in the white plugs.

Before Track Cut


After Track Cut



Wire links added



Modified Wiring



Changes to the plug wiring:
The Right white wire position is not altered.
The plug leading to the coils nearest J1 can be left disconnected if you do not require the 'transfer' facility, this saves power if you are just using it for a 2-pole switch.

Example use at mast head
