Replacing humans in tasks done in dangerous environments i e fire space volcanoes
nuclear facilities underwater etc
Performing tasks that are beyond human capabilities of size weight speed endurance
Economy improvement Automation may improve in economy of enterprises society or
most of humanity For example when an enterprise invests in automation technology
recovers its investment or when a state or country increases its income due to
automation like Germany or Japan in the 20th Century
Reduces operation time and work handling time significantly
The main disadvantages of automation are
Unemployment rate increases due to machines replacing humans and putting those
humans out of their jobs
Technical Limitation Current technology is unable to automate all the desired tasks
Security Threats Vulnerability An automated system may have limited level of
intelligence hence it is most likely susceptible to commit error
Unpredictable development costs The research and development cost of automating a
process may exceed the cost saved by the automation itself
High initial cost The automation of a new product or plant requires a huge initial
investment in comparison with the unit cost of the product although the cost of
automation is spread in many product batches of things

1 2Explanation Of Relays And Contactors
The representation of relays and contactors in the electrical circuit diagram is identical as
their operating principle
i Relays are used to switch relatively small output and current
ii Contactor to switch relatively large output and currents
1 2 1 Relays
a Definition Relay
A relay is an electrically operated switch electromagnetically actuated switch Current
flowing through the coil of the relay creates a magnetic field which attracts a lever and
changes the switch contacts The coil current can be ON or OFF so relays have two switch
positions and most have double throw changeover switch contacts
b Types of Relays
Relays are usuallly SPDT Single Pole Double Throw or DPDT Double Pole Double
Throw but they can have many more sets of switch contacts
Poles the number of sets of contacts
Throw The number of positions or combinations open or close the contacts have
Several types of relays shown in the diagram below
Circuit symbol for a relay
The relay s switch connections are usually labelled COM NC and NO
COM Common always connect to this it is the moving part of the switch
NC Normally Closed COM is connected to this when the relay coil is off
NO Normally Open COM is connected to this when the relay coil is on
Connect to COM and NO if you want the switched circuit to be on when the relay coil
Connect to COM and NC if you want the switched circuit to be on when the relay coil
c Relay Building Diagram
The actual relay building diagram
A simple electromagnetic relay consists of a coil of wire wrapped around a soft iron
core an iron yoke which provides a low reluctance path for magnetic flux a movable iron
armature and one or more sets of contacts The armature is hinged to the yoke and
mechanically linked to one or more sets of moving contacts It is held in place by a spring so
that when the relay is de energized there is an air gap in the magnetic circuit
When an electric current is passed through the coil it generates a magnetic field that
activates the armature and the consequent movement of the movable contact s either
makes or breaks depending upon construction a connection with a fixed contact
If the set of contacts was closed when the relay was de energized then the movement
opens the contacts and breaks the connection and vice versa if the contacts were open
When the current to the coil is switched off the armature is returned by a force
approximately half as strong as the magnetic force to its relaxed position Usually this force is
provided by a spring but gravity is also used commonly in industrial motor starters Most
relays are manufactured to operate quickly In a low voltage application this reduces noise in
a high voltage or current application it reduces arcing
Relay Building Diagram
How Relays Work
1 When switch is ON press the current will flow through it
2 It will energize the electromagnet
3 Then the coil electromagnet will attract the lever
4 After the lever touch each other the electricity will flow to the load
Relay can be used for various regulating control and monitoring functions
i As interfaces between control circuits and load circuits
ii For signal multiplication
iii For separation of direct current and alternating current circuits
iv For delaying generating and converting signals and
v For linking information
d Example Of Relay Use In The Traffic Light System
Operating Principle
This circuit can be used to control traffic in public places or to demonstrate traffic
rules in traffic parks
IC2 which is heart of the circuit is a decade counter In this counter for every pulse
fed to pin 14 potential keeps shifting from D1 to D9 in cyclic order
IC1 is used as a pulse generator and generates pulses in regular configurable
intervals These intervals can be changed by varying VR1
The circuit is designed in such a way that out of nine pulses relay RL1 remains
triggered for 4 pulses relay RL2 for 1 pulse and relay RL3 for remaining 4 pulses
Since D1 D4 provide current to T1 T1 is on whenever there is potential on any diode
D1 to D4 which keeps relay RL1 triggered Similarly other diodes are responsible for
RL2 and RL3 triggering
Red Yellow and Green lamps can be connected to the relays RL1 RL2 and RL3
respectively to complete your mini traffic light controller
1 2 2 Contactors
d Definition Contactor
A relay that can handle the high power required higher current rating to directly
control an electric motor or other loads is called a contactor
A contactor is an electrically controlled switch used for switching a power circuit similar
to a relay except with higher current ratings
Contactors are used to control electric motors lighting heating capacitor banks and
other electrical loads
b Basic Component Of Contactor
A contactor has three components The contacts are the current carrying part of the
contactor This includes power contacts auxiliary contacts and contact springs The
electromagnet provides the driving force to close the contacts The enclosure is a frame
housing the contact and the electromagnet
Contactor building diagram
A basic contactor will have a coil input which may be driven by either an AC or DC
supply depending on the contactor design The coil may be energized at the same voltage as
the motor or may be separately controlled with a lower coil voltage better suited to control
by programmable controllers and lower voltage pilot devices
c Operating Principle
Unlike general purpose relays contactors are designed to be directly connected to
high current load devices Relays tend to be of lower capacity and are usually designed for
both normally closed and normally open applications Devices switching more than 15
amperes or in circuits rated more than a few kilowatts are usually called contactors Apart
from optional auxiliary low current contacts contactors are almost exclusively fitted with
normally open contacts Unlike relays contactors are designed with features to control and
suppress the arc produced when interrupting heavy motor currents
When current passes through the electromagnet a magnetic field is produced which
attracts the moving core of the contactor The electromagnet coil draws more current initially
until its inductance increases when the metal core enters the coil The moving contact is
propelled by the moving core the force developed by the electromagnet holds the moving
and fixed contacts together When the contactor coil is de energized gravity or a spring
returns the electromagnet core to its initial position and opens the contacts
i Main Contact
Main contact of the contactor are normaly open contact and usually use to connect power
load to the main supply
ii Auxiliary Contacts
Auxiliary contacts are secondary switching devices which work in conjunction with primary
switching equipment such as circuit breakers relays and contactors These contacts are
physically linked to the main switching mechanism and activate at the same time it does
Auxiliary contacts are commonly used as interlocks or retainers on the primary device s
control circuit and often used to give indication of its state of operation such as trip function
indication electrical interlocks and start circuit retainers Many contactors and circuit
breakers feature sets of auxiliary contacts as integral parts or they may be modular snap on
units which can be added or removed as required Auxiliary contacts are available with either
normally open or normally closed contact points or a combination of both
d Examples Application Of Contactor In Motor Control Sytem
1 DOL Motor Starter
2 A STAR DELTA Motor Starter
1 2 3 Difference Between Relay And Contactors
The Difference
1 Since a contactor is required for a higher load a relay is always cheaper than a
2 A relay is normally used in appliances below 5KW while a contactor is preferred
when the appliance is heavier
3 A relay is used only in control circuit while a contactor can be used in both control
and power circuits
4 In general contactors are little slower than relays
5 Contactor is so designed that it can be repaired while it is not normally done in the
case of relays
It should be noted that when installing contactors or relays that you always check the coil
ratings They often have not got a default rating of 230volts and only go bang once if they are
connected to the wrong voltage
Differences between Pneumatic
Hydraulic and Electrical control

1 Using Compress air as Using oil as supply source Using electricity as a
supply source supply source
2 Easy installation Complicated Installation Simple system
3 Simple design If leak will cause dirty Widespread use
