14 Automation Made Easy The first automatic switch to be extensively used in discrete process control was the electromechanical relay (Figure 2-1). A number of electrical suppliers, such as Allen Bradley, Siemens, and Square D, manufactured these devices for use in discrete manufacturing control as well as for other areas requiring high-speed switching. Although the diagram in Figure 2-1 is a simplified view of an electromechanical relay, it is useful for understanding the basic principles of operation of these devices.

This results in an automatic switch. This description is fairly accurate, but it is a bit of a simplification in that a single electromagnet may provide the driving mechanism for multiple sets of contacts. In such a design, when a single electromagnet is magnetized, a number of different on-off actions can occur simultaneously. It does not take much imagination to consider how a number of electromechanical relays could be connected together to perform a number of actions at the same time. As we have seen, the driving element of an electromechanical relay is an electromagnet powered by a circuit engaged through an input switch.
