The bosch relay has a 12vdc coil and the contacts are rated for 30A. I dont think the contacts care weather it is AC or DC as long as the current does not exceed 30A. The relay that you linked is like a bosch relay, except the contacts are only rated for 1A. If I am missing something please chime in.
