Arduino
This simple program cycles the relays on/off for 20/2.5 secs respectively.

//Define the Pins to connect the featherwing power relay boards
//Pin 11 is for the Feather M4 Express
const int ledPin = 11;// On a Feather HUZZAH32 the pin is 27; 
const int ledPin2 = 12; 

int count = 1;

//Set the Pins for output
void setup() {
  pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(ledPin2, OUTPUT);
}

//loop to the on/off cycle for four times then stop
void loop() {
  
    if (count < 5)
    {
      //Turn off the relays
      digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW);
