    Hello everyone,

    This is my circuit. Basic 24VDC to turn on light.
    Switch1 will normally close, but when i close SW2/SW3, the relay did not change to normally open. (I want Light1 to operate and Light2 to off when SW2/SW3 is closed.
    Can you help me identify the problem? Thank you

    Note: when i tried this circuit on breadboard, i used a 9VDC relay. Could that be the problem?

    Hello,

    What kind of relays is used in the simulation?
    As lamp 1 is in series with the relay, it will never get full voltage.
    Use a 24 Volts relays parallel to lamp 1, in stead of in series and try again.

    It only state that it is a single pole changeover relay in the simulation. But i used a 9VDC relay in actual, is that the reason why it does not work? if so, i will go buy a 24VDC relay. any specific to the current?
