RELAYS

A RELAY is a special circuit that allows us to turn another circuit on or off while keeping the circuits seperated

Allows you to isolate and control items of all voltages from a low-power consuming device.

N.O.=Normally open
N.C.=Normally closed

Contains an electromagnet that opens and closes a switch.
