I have assembled an electronic timer kit, #148 from Hobby Engineering
The relay specs say 1.9W is consumed by the relay for 12VDC, so I'm expecting to need at least 160 mA to energize the relay.
The timer circuit uses open-collector output with a BC547 transistor for control, and I'm sure this transistor will not handle the current load required by the relay.
I'm looking for suggestions on how to accomplish this - perhaps cascade the control circuit with a larger transistor?
Any ideas are much appreciated.
