Looking for Bosch / tyco relay socket SCREW terminal type?

Anyone know if they make a socket / base for the 12v Bosch style relays that has screws for wiring ? I don't want the regular prewired sockets (some also have a diode) that are sold everywhere. I'd like a plastic base with 5 screws and 5 slots (plug the relay into the slots) so I can wire my lines into the screws.....and pop out the relay when it needs replacing.

I saw 'haywire' sells a 4-gang relay block but it too is prewired.

The reason is that prewired uses wires that are too thin in my opinion. If I use my own wires and push-on connectors then I still have a relay dangling around somewhere. Not pretty.

I think this is as close as you can get to what you are looking for:



Omron MGN1X-DC12 (SPST) $ 24.64 ea.
Omron MGN1C-DC12 (SPDT) $ 27.19 ea.
Datasheet

There is an optional dust cover available.

Also, they are about 2.5" square instead of 1" like the Bosch automotive relays.

Hope this helps....

Why not just use push on connectors directly to the spade bit of the relay! Huh!

Terminal Supply Company sells relay sockets without terminals. You buy the terminals, crimp them to the wire size you want, and snap them into the socket. This socket has a screw mounting tab. Note that it also snaps into another identical socket so you can build a rack of relays if you want. You can also get the Bosch relays that use the Weatherpack terminals and again, just crimp new terminals to the wire size you want.

Joe G: Thanks but those relays suck up a ton of current just to hold them "on" and are more for industrial We use them in the elevator world here in NY, a bit too overkill for accessories

joe_padavano: That's a good option and totally works for me I think. I can use my own thick wires and at least create my own socket that stays in place neat and pretty. Looking into it

I found This relay socket which seems a bit better and will work just as well. I'll have to settle

Still, Im amazed that I cant find a premade socket with connectors inside and 5 screws that I can wire to. Now I can retire when I produce these items and make billions
