Global Electromechanical and Solid-state Relay Market 2015-2019

A relay is a device designed for use in electrical circuits to register overcurrent, overvoltage, reverse power flow, and over- and under-frequency in order to avoid any major accidents or flashovers. It trips the circuit breaker when a fault is detected. If there is any discrepancy or abnormality in the voltage or current, the relay detects it and triggers an alarm. A circuit breaker is then used to switch the electrical power off to avoid damage to the system. There are different kinds of relays such as electromechanical relays and digital relays. Solid state relays are electronic switching devices that operate on application of a small external voltage across their control terminals. Solid state relays are smaller than electromechanical relays and are more reliable as they do not have a......
