Book Description

The electric relay is one of the most frequently used devices in modern technological systems, yet broad information is difficult to locate. There are so many types that most engineers are familiar with only a limited number of relays applicable to very specific devices. This book contains a complete description of electrical relays, their principles of operation, and applications for all basic types. It includes the historical background for various types and discusses the issues of design and the operation principles of relay components for complicated types of relays. The author uses clear language, avoids heavy mathematics, and includes numerous illustrations for a highly accessible presentation.

Book Description
*Provides a comprehensive survey of the entire range of electric relays with a focus on the practical aspects

*Develops a deep understanding of the design, operation, and applications of relays and their major components

*Covers the entire "world of electrical relays," from reed switch, solid-state, and high-voltage relays to distance, frequency, and microprocessor-based relays

*Includes abundant illustrations, references, and a complete glossary of terms

Electric relays pervade the electronics that dominate our world. They exist in many forms, fulfill many roles, and each have their own behavioral nuances and peculiarities. To date, there exists no comprehensive reference surveying the broad spectrum of electric relays, save one-Electric Relays: Principles and Applications. This ambitious work is not only unique in its scope, but also in its practical approach that focuses on the operational and functional aspects rather than on theory and mathematics.
