    Hi friends,
    I want to use a 3PDT standard omron MK3P-I relay in reversing a 12 V DC permanent magnet linear that is rated 5.5AMP.The plug in relay has the following specifications:
    CONTACT;10AMP(N.O)
    250VAC~/28VDC=5AMP(N.C) RES
    250VAC~7AAMP GEN.COS=0.4

    Can the relay work in my application?Please help

    Looks marginal. Might work for a little while but the contacts are only rated to carry 5 A, not the 5.5 A you are talking about. Would be safest to use a relay with higher rated contacts.
