    Hello,

    I found a bag of relays but I can't find the datasheet for them online.

    I was hoping that someone will recognize these or maybe, is there a standard pinout for this relay?

    Here is a picture:

    It's an Omron G2V-2 series. I don't find it in my catalog, but the Omron web site will have the data sheet. It is a 5 volt DC coil.

    I tried Omron's website, but they don't have a datasheet for that part. I also called Omron, talked to two different people, neither one of them knew about this part.

    I used continuity test on my DMM to find the normally closed pins. Then I hooked up a 4 pack of AA's to various pins to find the coil. So it's all good. :)

    Next time, use the multimeter to find a small DC resistance (around 50-300 ohms) between two pins - chances are that's the coil.

    Oh thanks! I measured the coil resistance; it came out to be 65 ohms.
