Electromagnetic Relay Circuit

This animation simply shows how a relay can turn on a large current with a small one. Both circuits are separate and do not electrically connect. The idea is when you have a big situation like a car or a power station a small flick switch can turn a larger switch and current easily with little force. We don’t want to be pulling a massive lever to turn on the current! There are more relays here in Wikipedia
