What are Relays?

The relays not only open and close the circuits electromechanically but also give primary protection to most of the control processes or equipment. It contains input terminals for single as well as multiple control signals and a unit of operating terminals.

How do relays work?

They exercise control through one electrical circuit to another using opening and closing contacts. The relays always respond to one or more electrical quantities, such as electric power or voltage. When the relay contacts open or close, the connections are present in both ways, in case the relay does not get energized. One can use relays by switching smaller currents in a control circuit, and they don’t restrict power-consuming equipment, but for small motors and Solenoids, that draw low amps. Hence, relays, having an amplifying effect, also controls higher voltages and amperes, which can give tremendous results even on a slight application on relays.

Types of Relays?

Are you seeking for different types of relays? Selecting the right relay depends on how they function and its usage. Now, finding the relay is easy when you are at Multicorp. We present various types of relays for our customers.

Protective Relays

Monitor and control the voltage, current, and power. If any of these parameters violate the set limits, these relays generate an alarm or isolate the circuit, which creates problems. Also, the protective relays protect motors, generators, transformers, and others.

Coaxial Relay

Does the work as that of a transmit-receive switches the antenna from the receiver to transmitter. If you are looking for the relay that coordinates with both, radio transmitters and receiver, Coaxial relay is the right relay for you

Attraction Type Electromagnetic Relays

Works well with AC and DC supply & attracts a metal bar or even a piece of metal on the power supply to the coil. It acts as a plunger if drawn towards the solenoid or armature that attracts the electromagnet poles.

Magnetic Latching Relays

It is an electromagnetic switch that uses the permanent magnet or parts having high remittance to maintain the position of the armature. These relays revolve between the two terminals, which you can use to toggle from one circuit to another.

Reclosing Relays

Are you looking for the relays to connect the devices and components within the system network? Reclosing relays makes it possible. These relays also synchronize the process and restore the equipment immediately and function normally after the electrical fault gets rectified. You can then connect transformers and feeders to the line network.

Electromagnetic Relays

It comprises of electrical, mechanical, and magnetic components, that consists of operating coil and mechanical contacts, which, when activated by a supply system, opens or closes the mechanical connections.

Induction Type Relays

Work as protective relays in AC systems as well as DC systems. It develops the actuating force for contact movement with the help of a moving conductor in the form of a disc or a cup via electromagnetic fluxes interaction that occurs owing to fault currents.

Solid State Relays

Utilizes the solid-state components for switching operations without touching any parts. The requirement of control energy is much lower than the output power, which helps you to gain more power than electromagnetic relays.
