Voltage Relays Answered
Hello, I'm new to this board, and well, making things in general, and am particularly stumped about voltage relays. I know in theory how they work, a small voltage triggers a circuit to close and let a larger voltage through, but practically have no idea what the terminology used in the data sheets mean. What I'm looking for is to have 120VAC be triggered by a 5VDC. The 120VAC would only be on as long as there was 5VDC triggering it. Can anyone out there tell me what I should be looking for, in particular, what the voltage that causes the circuit to close is called? Thanks. --D.K.
