While electronic wizzes are familiar with the peculiar components and elements that comprise a myriad of electrical assemblies, there are still some parts that are often conflated. Patch panels and switches are one example of components that are confused for one another, though they are entirely different elements with respective roles. With this in mind, we will provide a brief overview of patch panels and switches, their roles, and how they work.

Relays are critical components in a circuit, found in the electronic equipment ranging from smartphones to airplanes. While sharing the same name, the various types of relays perform vastly different functions. Therefore, having an understanding of the differences between the most prevalent types of relays is critical to understanding electrical currents as a whole. In this blog, we will discuss the difference between the most common relays and a safety relay.

Relays are switches that open and close circuits electromechanically or electronically. They can be found nearly everywhere from printers and shredders to cars and telephones. Relays control one electrical circuit by opening or closing contacts in another circuit. When a relay contact is normally open (NO), there is an open contact and the relay is not energized. When a relay contact is normally closed (NC), there is a closed contact when the relay is not energized. Whether the relay is normally in an open or closed position, applying electrical current to the contacts will change their state.
