What is a Condenser Relay?

What is a condenser relay? It is an electronic device that relays the normal power supply to the panel heaters. This device also helps to dissipate the extra energy from the panels. These heaters are the basic pieces of a home or office heating system. These heating systems must be installed by a qualified professional for optimum results. Installing these systems requires expertise, experience and time to ensure its proper installation.

In its most typical form, a condenser relay is a small circuit board that contains a number of transistors. The function of this particular component is to control the normal flow of electricity in a network of individual panel heaters. The switch allows the power to flow only to the heater(s) that are activated by the switch. As a result, these heaters would be automatically heated. It is usually considered as a controlled thermostat. These devices are typically used in small air conditioning and cooling units to control the energy flow. It is able to save energy by slowing down the process of heat conversion.

Condenser relays are built with various designs. Some are used to control and limit the energy flow for single panel heaters while others are used to control the power consumption for multiple heater networks. The commonly used coil design of these devices is the BJT (Board-Junction-Trimmer). These devices can have control signals like PWM, Pulse Width Modulation (PWM), and OCS (On-Screen-Signal). These are the main types of condenser relay.
