Forklift Relays follow a similar design as electrical switches. A common design typically consist of a coil wire wrapped around a soft iron core, iron yoke and a movable armature. The armature is activated once an electric current passes through the coil. Relays are usually found behind or underneath the dashboard and in most vehicles, housed in the door panel. These electrical components come in different sizes, ratings and applications. In many cases, automobiles pack as many as 20 relays or more.
The forklift relay is a pronged electrical accessory with two or more prongs. The amount of prongs depends on the model or requirement of the electrical part it is used on. A relay is wired in two ways: from the electrical source of the lift truck to the electrical part or a switch to the electrical part. When the ignition is turned on, the electrical source will surge and energize all of the parts connected to it. Without a relay, this will allow the electricity to directly power an electrical part, which can lead to a surge of electrical power that ‘excite’ and over time, damage the part.
Relays also ensure that the required electrical rating reaches the particular electrical part. Thereby preventing any negative effects a lower or higher voltage may cause. But, when voltage problems occur, the relay gets damaged and cut the flow of the electricity. Thereafter, a new relay will be required to replace the damaged one.
Any inexperienced operators and/or fleet managers can locate the relays with ease, as these components are scattered in different parts, yet are easily identifiable parts of the vehicle. In most scenarios, relays can be found in the engine compartment or underneath the dash.
