Relays are a type of switch that normally open (NO) and normally closes (NC) circuits electrically not mechanically. The purpose of a relay is to control an electrical circuit. Benefits of using a relay switch are that you can switch a high current circuit using a lower current circuit and you can activate more than one circuit from a single input. Relay(s) is panel-mount, electromechanical components which consist of a range input terminal for a single or multiple controls. In addition, relays widely used to switch starting coils, heating elements, pilot lights and audible alarms.
What are Relays?
Essentially, relays are an electromechanical component which operates the flow of electric current within an electric circuit. It usually operates similar to on/off method however it’s not pressed but operated by the current. Relays have a wide range of uses in a wide range of applications used by a wide range of industries. These appliances usually where isolation is necessary or when the circuit needs to be controlled with a low or high power signal.
Where are Relays used?
Common applications for Relay switches include medical products, home appliances, automotive products, industrial machinery, scientific equipment and many more. RJS Electronics Ltd supplies a wide range of Relays. This includes General purpose, Automotive Flashers, Automotive Relays, Communication Relays and Heavy-Duty Relays. We also provide Connectors and bases.
We supply a wide range of relay products suitable for a wide variety of applications. So you can easily find what you’re looking for, we have sub categorised our relays into 6 categories.
Automotive flasher is OEM replacements for most applications. Available in two types: thermal type or electromechanical type. Used as a flashing light especially by the Automotive Industry.
Automotive relays are commonly used by the automotive industry and marine & boat building industry. Automotive relays are available with 4pin and 5pins. Relays used by the automotive industry, therefore, can be found in cars and are also frequently used by the boat building/marine industry. This type of relay has either normally closed or normally open contacts and can handle up to 30 or 40 amps.
Heavy-duty relays are usually, small, lightweight, reliable and durable. Commonly used by the automation industry and used within industrial controls and commercial & domestic electrical appliances. Heavy-duty relays offer long electrical life and low life cycle costs with a rated voltage of 12V and 24V DC. Often used within demanding applications due to its ability to stop heavy loads. Commonly used in the automation industry and used in industrial controls, commercial and domestic electrical appliances.
We have a wide range of communication relays which are designed to transmit data signals to another device/destination. Communication relays can be commonly used (but not limited to) the automotive industry, broadcast industry, weather, and medical equipment.
General-purpose relays are applied mainly in industrial and power automation systems as well as signalling and protection systems. General-purpose relays are quick and easy to install and are very secure.
