240V power relays are electrical switches that are used to control high voltage circuits with a voltage rating of 240V AC (alternating current). They are designed to handle large currents and voltages and are commonly used in industrial and commercial applications.
The main function of a power relay is to switch a high voltage circuit on and off using a low voltage control signal. The low voltage signal is typically provided by a control circuit, such as a microcontroller or a switch. When the control signal is applied to the relay coil, it creates a magnetic field that pulls a set of contacts together, allowing current to flow through the high voltage circuit.
Power relays can be either normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC). Normally open relays have contacts that are open when the coil is not energized, while normally closed relays have contacts that are closed when the coil is not energized.
240V power relays are widely used in a variety of applications, such as motor control, lighting control, heating and cooling systems, and power distribution systems. They are available in various types and configurations to suit different applications and can be found in both AC and DC versions.
240V power relays can be used in a wide range of applications where high voltage and current switching is required. Some of the common applications where 240V power relays are used include:
