About this Report

This report is intended to assist buyers of relays. Relays are electrically operated switches. Most relays are composed of an electromagnet that, when displacing a current, pulls another magnet in an adjacent electric system to complete that circuit. By managing the electromagnet, users can control whether the circuit is open or closed, making it an electrical switch. Relays are commonly used for digital signal amplification and logic functions, among other uses. Relays come in a variety of different types, such as latching, reed, solid-state, Buchholz, ratchet, coaxial, automotive and digital protective relays. This report includes contractors, but  does not include mechanical switches or circuit breakers.
