Time delay relay circuit

Posted on

What is a time delay relay circuit? In a time delay relay circuit, relay contacts are closed or open after the preset time interval. Whereas in a normal relay contacts are open/closed immediately when coil is energized. It prevents the damaging effect of voltage spikes or input surge current by delaying the relay on/off. Schematic […]
