Mains into a relay


Will hot/live go into NO and neutral into COM, to switch over 200v? Can someone explain please. I saw in some places it says natural into NO but what into com?

Best Answer

A relay is just a switch - just like a light switch. It interrupts or connects the connection of LIVE (or "hot") to your device. Neutral remains connected direct to your device at all times.
