    Hi all, today I had a problem with a standard relay terminals 30,87,86 and 85.

    When I tested the circuit I found that the relay primary windings were high resistance measuring 0.486 kohms. New relay was required Iam querying the high resistance measured by my meter as 0.486kohms is equal to what?

    Is there a way to calculate this reading i.e 1000ohms equal to 1kohm. Does this mean 4860ohms.

    Hello,

    0.486kOhm = 486 Ohm.

    Thanks for that, from my meters reading it wasnt exactly a kohm, I have it selected on auto range. Plenty of practice and experience I suggest.

    Thanks again.

    Hello,

    Here are links with general information on relays.
    http://www.educypedia.be/electronics/relay.htm

    There are also pages for other components.
    Passive semiconductors technology: Batteries Diodes Photovoltaic systems Switches Buzzers Diode types Quartz crystals Thermoelectric Capacitors General overview Relays Transformers Capacitor types Heat Sinks Resistors Transformers-RF Coils Photo diode Resistors-Nonlinear Transformer types
    I hope you can learn somethis from these links.

    Greetings,
