Analog switch lowers relay power consumption: 12/20/2001 EDN - Design Ideas / Designers often use relays as electrically controlled switches. Unlike transistors, their switch contacts are electrically isolated from the control input. However, the power dissipation in a relay coil may render the device unattractive in battery-powered applications. You can lower this dissipation by adding an analog switch that allows the relay to operate at a lower voltage (Figure 1). .

SCR Phase Control yields Solid State Switch: 03/15/01 EDN-Design Ideas / PDF contains multiple circuits - scroll to find the one of interest / SCRs (silicon-controlled rectifiers), or thyristors, have higher current and voltage ratings, lower conduction losses, and more robustness than triacs. For these reasons, SCRs are better suited to high-power applications. This is high power dimmer circuit for115V AC.

Time delay relay reduces inrush current: 03/07/2002  EDN - Design Ideas / A transformer switching onto a line can sometimes cause a circuit breaker to trip or a fuse to blow. This phenomenon occurs even if the transformer presents no load, such as when the secondary is open. The problem arises because of the heavy magnetizing inrush current in the transformer. The amplitude of the current depends on the instant on the ac waveform at which the transformer become... .
