This is kinda noob question. I recently got an SCR Power controller (WATLOW DIN-a-mite DB20-24CO-0000 Style B). This is the first time I actually got to test an SCR controller for myself. The input trigger is 4VDC to 32VDC, which I powered with a fully charged Li-ion at 4.1V . AC input:115VAC from 12V inverter and out is a 115V digital panel meter (I wanted to try first with a low powered device) though its meant for a heater.
As per the specs the SCR is rated for 25Amps. Similar or even higher rated current relays are available and much smaller in size.
