I am looking for the email address for Jacobs Electronics. I went round and round on their website and only found references to an alleged email address, but no address itself. So if any of you folks know it (or are more adept at finding an email address in a haystack), please help me out.

What I really want to know is how much current the solinoid control lines on their nitrous master mind can sink. Can they drive a Cheater solinoid directly (10 amp load) or do I need a relay? I have called them a number of times giving the specific question I want answered, but all I have gotten in response is a message saying I should call back. I was hoping to be more successful using email.

As of this post, Jacobs is restructuring their IT department and the services on their website and it will not be complete for another month. Their e-mail has been through "fciginition.com", but, that too is in the restructuring and is no longer up.

The phone is your only option as of this post.

**EDIT**

Just got off the phone with these idi*** and they state "the use of any solinoid over 1" in diameter should use a 30 amp relay."

But they couldnt give me any specifics on ampacity of the control circuit.

Hope this help Ed~

After getting another return call from them with no information, just a request to call them back, I left an animated message (as opposed to my previous polite messages) asking them to give me the specific answer I was asking for and not a "return call".

It worked - I got a message giving me what I need. It seems the output lines can handle a 10A load, which is good for a single cheater size solinoid. Boy was that a lot more effort than it needed to be just to get some simple info.
