Basically, many people see a relay as a switch. The main difference between a relay and a switch is that a switch is […]
Wiring and power systems can be a little tricky to wrap your head around, especially when it comes to something as specific as a solenoid. This device is necessary with your vehicle’s starter in order to keep your vehicle running smoothly and efficiently. But you may be wondering, how do I know my solenoid works […]
Relays are switches controlled by electrical power, like another switch, computer or control module. The purpose of an automotive relay is to automate this power to switch electrical circuits on and off at particular times. However, the real benefit behind a relay is more than just automation; they also provide the ability to switch multiple […]
Many types of automotive relays exist to meet the demands of various applications. Knowing the differences and understanding what to look for can be a huge help when deciding on the right relay for your build. While the list of automotive relays below is not exhaustive, it’s a great start to seeing the options available.
Overview Often times when working on high amperage applications a solenoid is incorporated into the wiring system. This is due to their ability to control a large output of power with very little power input. But, what is a solenoid?
How do relays work? What’s in a relay? What do all of those pins do? How do I wire a relay? Great questions!
Whether you are fixing your air conditioning, connecting new LED lights, or wiring a relay, you are probably working with a resistor. Resistors can be found in almost every electrical circuit, but they are often built-in to other components. So what do these hidden resistors really do? And why are they so important to the […]
