Low Volt Relay Control Wiring Diagram
When the 24V is applied to the relay the relay just “Buzzes” but contacts in the relay don’t close to pass through the 240V AC. The relay has a manual test button and if I press this everything works fine…
Considerations When Wiring Low Voltage Control Relays
Question: I am using 24VDC relays to switch 240VAC (15Amp)on irrigation line. My 24V DC supply is only 1000 MAmp. When the 24V is applied to the relay the relay just “Buzzes” but contacts in the relay don’t close to pass through the 240V AC. The relay has a manual test button and if I press this everything works fine.The Relay is a 782-2C-24D DP relay. I have tested the input voltage at 25.7V DC. Any suggestions.

Thanks for your electrical question Gerry.
Gerry, you may have to increase the size of the control voltage power supply. Check the operational power requirements for the relay. Check the wire size and length of the control wiring as well.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
