Relays are electrical devices that are used to control circuits in restaurant equipment and other types of machinery. They work by using a small electrical current to control a larger current, allowing a low-power control circuit to switch a high-power circuit on or off.
In restaurant equipment, relays can be used to control a variety of functions, such as turning on and off motors, controlling heating elements, and activating alarms. For example, a relay might be used to turn on a refrigerator's compressor when the temperature inside the fridge reaches a certain level, or to turn off a stove's heating element when the temperature reaches a certain point. Relays are often used in restaurant equipment because they can handle large amounts of current and are able to switch circuits on and off quickly and reliably.
A timer is a specialized type of clock used for measuring specific time intervals. Timers can be categorized into two main types. A timer which counts upwards from zero for measuring elapsed time is often called a stopwatch, while a device which counts down from a specified time interval is more usually called a timer. It is a control device that outputs a signal at a preset time after an input signal is received and then triggers another device or action.
