Hi all. can anyone reccommend a couple of relays below for 12v car power supplies ?

DELAY ON relay. 3 seconds needed (standalone) or 0.1 - 0.5 seconds (utilising MiniDSPs miniDC isolator). Total current draw of 30ma max

DELAY OFF relay. 3 seconds needed. Rated for 6watts +

I don't want the constant 17ma (measured 26ma) drain from the miniDC isolator.

Low / zero noise needed so prefer Solid state relays. £20 budget reasonable ?

Thanks

Actually Id prefer the 'delay on' relay to be a momentary one of 0.1 to 0.5 secs as the miniDC will always take care of the amps. When I fit a on/off switch on the dashboard it will make things simpler or fool proof!
