    Hi
    Hopefully you guys can help me please

    I think the component is a SSR relay. it has theses markings on it

    D014A OMRON IAM

    Its a 8 leg, inline package looks to be dipped in resin with a matt black appearance.

    Omrons web page nor google give me any details on this :confused:


    The PCB component designator is "HIC" what could that mean?

    The pcb is a unit out of a car it contains just simple switching for the mirrors.

    I've just mapped out the pcb and drawn a circuit of it.

    I can understand parts, but not knowing what the large black component is makes it tricky.

    Also having not got the means to plug it in a car to investigate the circuit makes it even more tricky !

    Any ideas guys?

    An industry standard SIP relay would have 4 pins I think.

    If you post a graphic of the schematic you have it may help.

    Ok iv got a schematic up. I can not see what voltage the zener is. Not havign the complete set up i can not be sure what CLOSE, OPEN and switch I/P signals are.

    The mirrors are folding types so i assume open close are to do with that.
    The Switch I/P is probably the button to fold them in.

    Do you think the polarity is reversed to the motor in order to close?


    Do you think i could email Omron for details on this part?

    Ok Omron uk were no help, its a custom jobby made in japan that they will have never seen before.

    I'm just going to have to get everything, and wire it up to investigate. He says its going to be a load of SMD bits on a substrate custom made :(

    Time do make something to do the same job then
