    Trying to simulate a simple timer using a transistor output driving a relay.
    Everything works ok except when the current decays and the relay drops out (it's a changeover relay ) the closed contact opens but instead of changing over with a snap the common arm moves over very slowly.
    In the real world of course the relay would snap and changeover.
    Is it possible to set it up to snap over?

    I just tried it and it is snapping over, it is break before make and takes around 0.2ms to change over. That's pretty quick.
