A 230 V power relay is an electrical device that allows an electrical circuit to be controlled by a low-power signal. It is designed to switch high voltage or high current loads, typically in the range of 230 volts. The relay uses an electromagnet to operate a set of contacts that can open or close a circuit. When the relay coil is energized, the contacts close and complete the circuit, allowing current to flow. When the coil is de-energized, the contacts open, and the circuit is interrupted. Power relays are commonly used in industrial and commercial applications to control motors, lighting, and other high-power electrical devices.
A 230V power relay can be used in a wide range of applications where electrical loads need to be controlled remotely or automatically. Some common examples include:
RS offer a wide range of 230V power relays from numerous leading suppliers, these relays can be used wherever there is a need to remotely control electrical loads or automate electrical systems.
