## What is relay with diagram?

A relay is an electrically operated switch. They commonly use an electromagnet (coil) to operate their internal mechanical switching mechanism (contacts). When a relay contact is open, this will switch power ON for a circuit when the coil is activated. The example relay diagrams below show how a relay works.

What is a relay in electrical terms?

The term Relay generally refers to a device that provides an electrical connection between two or more points in response to the application of a control signal. The most common and widely used type of electrical relay is the electromechanical relay or EMR. An Electrical Relay.

What is 85 and 86 on a relay?

85 will be used to ground your relay, while 86 will be connected to the switchable power. 87 and 87a will be connected to your controlled accessories that you wish to turn on and off with your relay.

#### How do you read a relay?

Relays are switches that open and close circuits electromechanically or electronically. Relays control one electrical circuit by opening and closing contacts in another circuit. As relay diagrams show, when a relay contact is normally open (NO), there is an open contact when the relay is not energized.

What is the symbol of switch in an electric circuit?

Circuit Symbols 101

Switches
Component Function of Component
Push-to-Break Switch This type of push switch is normally closed (on), it is open (off) only when the button is pressed.
On-Off Switch (SPST) SPST = Single Pole, Single Throw. An on-off switch allows current to flow only when it is in the closed (on) position.

### What is the symbol of 3 way switch?

the 3-way switch symbol is used to describe a pair of light switches which are found in areas such as a hallway or stairway where a 3-way switch is located at opposite ends.
