Impulse Relays: Introduction
Impulse relays are bi-stable, latching relays that enable the transfer of contacts with every pulse. Most impulse relays are made of a solid state steering circuit and a magnetic match relay. When power is applied, these components of impulse relays determine the position of the relay, and also energize the opposite coil. When the power is removed, the contacts in the impulse relay transfer and hold their positions. A unidirectional pulse is required by impulse relays to transfer the contacts. Impulse relays require one power pulse to energize the load and another to de-energize. Also, impulse relays do not require control pulse redirection or polarity reversing. One of the uses of impulse relays is that, they can be used as wear equalizers. This feature facilitates applications such as multiple remote control locations for turning a device on and off with a single push button or momentary switch at each remote station. For instance, a conveyor belt can be turned on or off from multiple remote locations by installing a single switch at every position.
Impulse Relays: Market Drivers and Opportunities
The global growth in the adoption rate of industrial automation enabling equipment is expected to fuel the growth of the global impulse relays market. Impulse relays enable industrial automation by facilitating features, such as remote control over industrial lighting and equipment. This feature ensures industrial process efficiency, and personnel and product related safety and security. This factor will propel the growth of the global impulse relays market. Impulse relays consume low power, which makes them energy-efficient. This factor also minimizes the overall maintenance expenditure. Such factors are expected to enhance the growth of the global impulse relays market.
Manufacturers use different design approaches to minimize the installation expenditure of impulse relays. Ideally, manufacturers and installation personnel employ simplicity in order to minimize the installation expenditure of impulse relays. Pre-planned remote control locations where impulse relays are required to be installed enable the industries to eliminate future service-related costs.
