Force guided relays are electromechanical switching devices that provide failsafe operation within circuits. Force guided relays are constructed such that it is not possible for all contacts to be closed at the same time. Dold force guided relays have at least one NC contact set and one NO contact set. If an NO contact fails when trying to open, the associated NC contact cannot close when the power supply is switched off.
Force guided relays offer a cost and space saving alternative to contactors while providing simple contact monitoring via a forcibly guided NC contact.
