    For all their promise, electric vehicles won’t really hit the roads in any great numbers until charging stations become more readily available. Fortunately, the creation of a charging infrastructure is underway based on three different types of charging stations. Here’s a look at these stations and why they need the right kind of DC relays to enable safe, effective electric vehicle charging:

    Measure Relay's Contact Resistance To Diagnose Failure Even the best Relays can fail at some point, but what causes them to fail? Conventional wisdom places the blame on worn out contacts. Every electromechanical Relay has a finite number of cycles it can endure before the contacts call it quits.
