Relays are electromechanical switches that work with a magnetic field to switch two circuits. One circuit is known as the control circuit, and the other is known as the load circuit. The control circuit is composed of an armature and contacts, which are connected to the coil. When the voltage is applied to the coil, the armature generates a magnetic field, triggering it to close or open.
Automotive relays are used to control the operation of electronics in vehicles. Relays must withstand high temperatures, voltage swings, and extreme vibrations. They are often used in powertrain systems in vehicles. Automotive electronics are expected to account for a significant portion of vehicle costs in the future. In order to meet these demands, automotive relay manufacturers are developing more electronic components and switching devices.
To ensure the reliability of automotive relays, they must have a minimum rated voltage of 10 volts. Using a higher voltage can damage the coil insulation layer and result in a short circuit between turns.
