A normally closed relay completes the circuit when no current flows in the coil, and breaks the circuit when coil current flows. ) A normally open relay does the opposite, completing the circuit when coil current flows, and breaking the circuit when coil current does not flow. The relay shown in Fig. 1-13 can function as a normally open or normally closed switch, depending on which contacts you select. It can also switch a single line between two different circuits. Did You Know? These days, engineers install relays in circuits and systems that must handle massive current or high voltage (or both).

Touch the red test lead’s probe tip to point Y, while leaving the black probe on X. 5. Look at the meter reading. If it shows anything other than 0, you know that an AC voltage exists between points X and Y, so they can’t possibly be directly shorted to each other. 6. If you do see 0 as the result for step 5, switch the meter to the next lower AC voltage function and repeat the test. 7. If you get 0 again, repeat steps 3 through 5 with all the AC voltage functions that the meter has, going down until you’ve tested at the lowest AC voltage setting.

At B, similar cable in which air makes up most of the dielectric medium. The most sophisticated coaxial cables have a solid metal shield that resembles a pipe or conduit. Communications engineers call it hardline. It’s available in larger diameters than typical coaxial cables, and transmits signals with excellent efficiency. You’ll find hardline in high-power, fixed radio and television transmitting installations. Quick Question, Quick Answer • Can coaxial cable effectively carry DC? • Yes. In some situations, coaxial cable works better as a DC-carrying medium than a single wire or lamp cord does.
