GE RELAYS – IC2820 GENERAL ELECTRIC TIMING RELAYS
WHERE TO USE
GE Timing relays are used for motor acceleration, sequence interlocking, and other applications requiring delayed opening or closing of control circuits. GE Relays operate on the flux-decay principle—dropout being delayed by slowing the rate of flux decay. Nonmagnetic armature shims of different thickness provide differing lengths of time delay. Some final adjustment can be made by varying tension of the armature spring.
Choose GE IC2820A100A relays for two circuits and minimum mounting space. Choose GE IC2820A100B relays for either two or four circuits and added time delay.
Choose between completely assembled relays and building-block units on the basis of purchasing perference. If applications can be predicted, completely assembled relays may be desired. If applications vary in number of circuits and arrangement, building-block forms may be more economical and practical.
