Relay

The relay utilizes the force generated on a conductor within a strong magnetic field when current is passed through it to impart motion to the conductor for the purpose of transferring relay contacts.

The conductor is formed by flat coils which are connected in series and printed on both sides of a dielectric sheet. The printed circuit board stands on edge. It is freely movable in its own plane within the gap between two permanent magnets with opposite poles facing each other.

An energizing current passes in one direction between one pair of poles and in the opposite direction between the other pair of poles. When energized, the printed circuit board tends to move out of the magnetic field in a direction perpendicular to the magnetic lines of force. This movement actuates the contact points.
