Which is the better 12 V relay?

Which is the better 12 V relay?

The Vista RM-150?

Or the Unique Sequencer?

They cost about the same. Also important to me is which fits better in an FX PX-300 or PX-600 transformer.

I don't know what they cost but a 12volt ice cube relay can be had for cheap off sites like digikey.

Greg,

I use the Kichler Synchronizer
#15511BK

It is significantly smaller than the sequencer and plugs in as well. I believe the Vista model is hard wired. I have had no problems so far with the Kichler version.

The Vista appears to hardwire in where a photocell would go. Seems like it would fit fine. Just wondering if anyone had any experience with it.

The end of the nearest run will be about 30 ft away.

I prefer the plug in models, so I can quickly bypass the relay to turn on the tf for diagnostic reasons.
