Relays are a type of electrically operated switch, and they provide input terminals and operating contact terminals for their functionality. Depending on the relay, they may be implemented within a device in order to control a circuit with a low-power signal or several circuits with a single signal. In their infancy, relays served as signal repeaters for long-distance telegraph circuits as well as telephone exchanges. As more advancements were made to such electrical switch components, their applications widened to include a number of electronic systems and appliances for motor control, circuit protection, safety-critical logic procedures, and more. While a number of relays exist to facilitate numerous needs, the three primary types that are most often used include the electromechanical, solid-state, and reed relay.

A voltage regulator is a device that provides two functions: changing the input voltage to a different level at the output and regulation, or maintenance of a constant output voltage despite changing load conditions. They are an important component in any power system, and choosing the right regulator for your system is crucial in developing an optimum solution. In this blog, we will discuss the types of regulators and how to decide which one is best for you.

Offshore boating offers adventure and opportunities that near-shore boating simply cannot. Fishing, travel, and the simple thrill of the open seas are all available, but offshore boating also carries its share of risks and challenges. The lack of visual reference points, long distance navigation, and the unpredictability of the open ocean all make offshore boating far more difficult. Therefore, having modern electronics onboard is critical for a safe voyage.
