Recommended Reading: Power Relays – Understanding the Basics

This is an excerpt from a recent educational article by DigiKey:

Power relays are known for their specialized capability to manage high-level current switching, ranging from several amps to substantially higher magnitudes. Their more robust construction and enlarged dimensions allow power relay contacts to withstand sizable currents, rendering them ideal candidates for applications demanding currents typically exceeding 10 amps. They find increased usage across diverse industries, encompassing automotive systems, elevator controls, valve actuators, and various devices characterized by high initial current surges, such as motors, solenoids, power supplies, and electronic ballasts.
