Hallo IanF,

Here is an extract from the venus gx datasheet. Seems the potential free relay contacts are rated for 6amp @ 230V, and 30Vdc.

Can someone from Victron confirm?

Best Regards
Riaan

That is correct.

Please take care when switching DC-loads: capacitive loads have high 'on' currents (when loading capacitors), and inductive loads (like coils) have high 'of' voltage spikes that need supression with a diode.
