Good fit. Solid construction. No more jiggling battery leads to get relay to engage.

to replace an original equipment solenoid in my OLD Mooney, this is the only game in town (and at a reasonable price too). it fit just fine and operates exactly as expected. as usual, no complaints with anything from Aircraft Spruce.

Q&A

Please note, Aircraft Spruce's personnel are not certified aircraft mechanics and can only provide general support and ideas, which should not be relied upon or implemented in lieu of consulting an A&P or other qualified technician. Aircraft Spruce assumes no responsibility or liability for any issue or problem which may arise from any repair, modification or other work done from this knowledge base. Any product eligibility information provided here is based on general application guides and we recommend always referring to your specific aircraft parts manual, the parts manufacturer or consulting with a qualified mechanic.

Q: What is the total current draw of the solenoid when actuated?

The total current draw is 0.8 amps.

Q: What is the difference between STec-A12 and STec-M12 relays?

The STS-M12 is for the battery master. The STS-a12 is for Auxiliary master, like a GPU.

Q: What size are the power and coil terminals? Also what is the recommended mounting orientation? I note that the 11-03161 (White-Rogers) unit recommends Cap Down orientation.

The coil terminals are #10's and the power terminals are 5/16ths. It is recommended to mount per the airframe specifications. If none, it is recommended to mount with the cap up.

Q: Does this Lamar solenoid include the diode? If not do I need it and what part number would it be?

Per Vendor: This product does not include the diode. You do not need the diode for the part to work correctly, it is simply a safety precaution some like to take. The airframe manufacturer might have a diode they recommend.

Q: What is the warranty for this unit?

12 mo from date of installation of product or 500 hrs - whichever comes first. Log books are required for warranty
