    Hi guys, complete n00bie here :)

    What's the purpose of a slim relay? As opposed to different relays for example? I tried googling the answer but no luck.

    Just from googling the name, I'd say it was a mechanical design parameter, so the relay will fit in its enclosure of the PCB or on a mounting rack.

    another design for relays is the tone relays that act as tuning forks to respond to only certain frequencies, they are usually long and slender.
