Phoenix Contact was established in 1985 and currently has over 20,000 employees worldwide. Phoenix Contact strives themselves to be the Global market leader and innovator for electrification, networking, and automation on the path to a smart world. Phoenix Contact products are used wherever a process is automated, wherever data flows and where power is controlled. Energise your circuits effortlessly through the utilisation of Phoenix Contact power relays. Power relays are utilised as a versatile device to govern the on/off switch dynamics of an individual circuit, or it can be configured to transition between two circuits. Electromechanical devices such as Phoenix Contact power relays ensure electrical power flows in circuits are regulated. Power relays consist of a coil which produces a magnetic field. This magnetic field that has been generated then allows the set of contacts to mechanically be switched. In essence, this energises the coil and closes contacts which allows current to pass to the load. Whereas, de-energising the coil opens contacts, which interrupts the current flow. Variations of these power relays include single pole, double pole and three pole setups. Other aspects such as circuit control and time delays enhance control and protection.
Power relays are used within applications where electrical power needs to be controlled. Examples of these common type of applications include motor control, lighting control, heating and cooling systems, power distribution, security systems and uninterruptable power supplies (UPS). Power relays direct electrical power in a variety of application types and are an integral component within many electrical systems. Here at RS we have a comprehensive array of Phoenix Contact power relays for you to pick from, so you can find the right component for your project.
