Learn more about Automotive Relay

It is an electromagnetic switch which is used to manage a high current or high voltage circuit with the help of low current or low voltage circuit. The automotive relay has a coil wrapped around an iron core, and this iron core generates magnetic field once it gets energized. The magnetic field generated attracts the control arm, hence making or breaking of the current circuit takes place. In vehicles, relays are controlled by another switch such as headlights, power windows, horn, and others. Relays are located in the engine area, fuse box, dashboard, and door panels.
