Fritzing – 2 channel relay part

Lately, I have been doing some experiments with programmable controllers.  One of my projects has been with controllable switches and Arduino.  In fact, my programming club had a problem, where this month’s speaker backed-out.  With six days to go, the club president asked if anyone would like to present.  I stepped up.

I thought it would be good to show a nice diagram of my project.  I noticed that most people use a program called Fritzing, to do the diagrams.  This program is great, but it does not have all of the parts that are commonly used with Arduino.

The program allows you to design your own parts.  However, the part designer is very fussy.  After a bunch of searching and trying, I managed to design a part that looks very similar to my SunFounder 2 Channel 5V Relay Shield Module

I thought it might help a few people if I shared it.  I’m pretty sure that it is not perfect (not-even close), but it is better than nothing.  If you are using another 2 channel relay shield module, this is pretty close.

You can download it from my other web server: Fritzing part for SunFounder 2 Channel 5V Relay Shield Module

If you would like to make improvements to it, I would be glad to update my Fritzing part.  If anyone is interested, I could probably make this into a 4-channel or 8-channel, without too much effort.  Just ask (below).

    Can you make this into an 8 relay? It would really help me out!

  2. Thanks for doing this !
    I’m setting up ArdLAb and I needed this. You saved me some very frustrating hours.

    And another thanks for doing this. This will help me illustrate what I have been trying to do.

    Thanks for models! 8 relay would be very helpful 🙂

    Thanks you so much. Can’t understand why such a popular board is not on the basic parts…

    do you have the fritzing part for the relay? can’t seem to find it anywhere.

    • Tim Golisch says:

      There is one relay part that comes with Fritzing, but it looks weird. It is black and appears to be sort-of 3d. All of my relays at home are orange or blue, so I don’t really like the relay that comes with Fritzing. Gosh, maybe I should make a single orange or blue relay part. That might be cool.

    I’m just starting with Fritzing.
    I need a 2 relays board. I have well downloaded the files from Tim.
    I managed to create a new component and replace the breadboard and PCB pictures.
    But for the Shematic picture I don’t fine any in the zip.

    Can someone help.
    Thanks in advance.

    hey thanks man. I used it, good job!

  9. Thank you for you job !
    Is fine!

    If anyone could send some good links or helpful information on what tools and the easiest approach to creating images to import into the Fritzing tool. It is quite a handy tool.

    can you please create 3 channel relay
