No mat that I know of on the market is capable of switching more than 24v. We carry 6"x23" commercial grade water/moisture resistant mats that will switch low voltage DC up to 24 volts, so if you want to switch 120V AC, you'll need to use relays.

You could wire the harbor freight mat to a X-10 powerflash module. That way you use the contact closure of the mat to activate the X-10 powerflash module and have it turn on what ever X-10 lamp modules or X-10 applicance modules you want to activate.ive had a look at the harbour freight ones,
but i am now wondering how to wire them to an electrical socket so i can plug in a cd player and motor?
Yes, a dry-contact switch is one that does not switch any voltage; it just completes a circuit. This mat from Harbor Freight:I know this is an old thread - the new trend this week
I have a question. I have the DMXorcist controller which uses the eXorcist input box.
It says I can only use dry contact-style switches. I want to get two pressure mats and plug them into those inputs but DO NOT want to fry the box. Anybody know what brands of pressure mats have dry contact-style switches? I have no idea what that means except perhaps there is no voltage?
