    Protect your relays from flyback voltage when the power supply is suddenly disconnected. See What is a Flyback Diode? for more info.

    Choose your own fuse and feeder cable sizes. You can choose individual fuse sizes, between 5 - 40A. If the checkbox below is not selected, MGI will supply fuses and main feeder as follow:

     

    Our load size calculator automatically selects a larger main feeder conductor when necessary.

Description

Reliable High-Power Control
for when regular switches won’t work

FUNCTIONAL

Your high-power solution. When regular switches can’t handle high-current loads, adding relays can become a complicated and messy project. That’s where MGI steps in ⁠— our fused relay boxes provide centralized control and protection with minimal wiring involved.

EASY INSTALLATION

Wiring is made easy. Each bosch-style relay box comes with a red main feeder cable and labeled screw terminals. Use the Installation Manual and wiring diagrams to help connect your power source, switches, and loads. It’s that easy.

RELIABLE

Quality is Guaranteed. Our relay boxes are routinely tested, with relays rated 40A at 12 volts to ensure optimal reliability come race time. Produced only with GXL high temperature wire, with no-nonsense screw terminal strips for reliable input and output wiring.

Choose the Number of Relays

We understand that space is a valuable commodity in your rebuild or showcar. That’s why we’ve designed automotive relay boxes with your choice of 4, 6, or 8 relays. Each relay box has at least one 5-pin relay that can be wired for normally closed operation if needed.

MGI relay panels can also come with flyback diodes installed. The use of a diode in a relay circuit prevents voltage spikes from arising when the power supply is disconnected.

Choose Your Fuses

Each MGI relay box comes with fuses tailored to your specific loads. Don’t know what fuse sizes you need? Don’t worry — MGI uses an industry standard, tried-and-true formula to provide recommended fuses sizes for your individual loads. A similar approach is used to calculate the main fuse size.

  1. Simply enter your current load for each relay into the calculator
  2. and indicate whether it is a motor load.

With this information, MGI will supply you with appropriate fuses unless otherwise selected.

Relay Box Wiring Diagrams
how to install 4, 6, and 8 relay boxes

STEP 1

Battery Power

relay box power

Connect the red main feeder conductor to the car starter’s battery power terminal. Then, install the supplied main fuse and holder in the main feeder conductor between the starter and the power stud found inside the panel.

STEP 2

Switches & Grounds

relay switches

Connect the black ground wire (with red ring terminal) to the auto chassis. Then, connect the control circuit wire(s) to your switch inputs, with outputs connected to the appropriate screw terminals.

STEP 3

Outgoing loads

relay box wiring

Connect your loads to the appropriate screw terminals. Ground your loads. See the 4, 6, and 8 relay box diagrams above. In addition to regular N.O. circuits for each relay, the RCP4 has 1 optional N.C. circuit, the RCP6 has 2 optional N.C. circuits, and the RCP8 has 3 optional N.C. circuits.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Answers to Popular questions

Why buy a fuse & relay box?

When rebuilding, restoring, or refurbishing your vehicle, you’re bound to need electric pumps, fans, spotlights and more. These high-current devices will damage regular ignition key switches or low-current switch panels — however, an electromagnetic switching relay box will give you the safe and reliable control you need.

Can this relay box operate “normally closed” devices?

Yes! Our unique SPDT Bosch style relay boxes can power devices that are normally closed.

  • RCP4 has one N.C. output (terminal #12)
  • RCP6 has two N.C. outputs (terminals #9 & #10)
  • RCP8 has three N.C. outputs (terminals #13, #21 & #25)
It’s as easy as connecting your loads to the appropriate N.O. or N.C. circuit screw terminals. See the wiring diagrams for more information.

WIRING EXAMPLES
some popular relay panel projects

Nitrous Trans-Brake Circuit

A nitrous trans-brake system is a great example of SPDT wiring that uses both the N.C. and N.O. relay box circuits.

See the RCPX Nitrous Trans-Brake Wiring Diagram. In this case, the N.C. nitrous circuit (with its own arming switch) is active only when the trans-brake switch is open.

  1. Raym (store manager)

    high quality and works well. Not cheap plastic like other relay boxes.

  2. Dan_H (store manager)

    Good but wish it came with a waterproof box for my buggy in the mud.
