I paralled the relay with 82 ohm. The 4060 at 28.5V now gets
pretty hot, but still touchable. The output drops to 5V and
the 4060 delivers 100mA. (50% duty cycle). Got bored after
an hour, and put a large choke parallel. The 4060 immediately
showed a latchup condition, and I could not turn off the
supply quick enough; it died under my hands.
I'll leave the room for an hour now, so you guys can debate
whether it is 'safe' to connect small relays to cmos-outputs
without any precautions ;) The 'test' shows it not so easy to
blow a regular 4000 cmos output.
