Parallel Port Relay Board Kit – CK1601 – Kit
Parallel Relay Board Kit. Do you have an old PC lying around the house which absolutely no one wants? Then you can convert it into a dedicated controller. Communicate with the real world via the parallel printer port on your PC. Simply connect printer cable from your computer to the connector on relay board. There are 8 relays each capable of switching 12VDC/10A or 240VAC/5A. Each relay has an LED to indicate when it is operated. We provide two sets of complete, stand-alone software to control the relays: one works under DOS so you can write your own batch files to control individual relays, the other under Windows 9x/2000/ME/XP. The kit is a boon to the Science Fair project, laboratory experimenter and so on. DIY K74

I have no idea why there are not dozens of reviews on this relay board. I have used them for years and they are fantastic for holiday lights, motorized projects and anything where you want complete control of relays through a computer. I actually use a PC from 1995 to drive this board and it is the most reliable in the arsenal of computers that I use. I recommend using Brookshire VSA, as it allows you to control this board in conjunction with a soundtrack that is on the computer.
