How relay is connected to microcontroller?

How relay is connected to microcontroller?

A relay can be easily interfaced with microcontroller using a transistor as shown below. Transistor is wired as a switch which carries the current required for operation of the relay. When the pin RB7 of the PIC microcontroller goes high, the transistor BC547 turns On and current flows through the relay.

Which basic driver is required for interfacing of relay with microcontroller?

The transistor is required for driving the relay as it requires more than 50mA of current, that the microcontroller is unable to provide. We can also use ULN2003 instead the transistor, it is a wiser choice if more than two or three relays are required for the application, check the Relay module circuit.

How can we interface relay using 8051 microcontroller?

Interfacing 8051 with an electromechanical relay

  1. Connect the oscillator circuit to pins 19 and 20.
  2. Connect one end of the capacitor to the EA’ pin and the other to the resistor.
  3. We are using port 2.o as the output port, to control the relay using a relay driver circuit.

What is relay interfacing?

Relays are devices which allow low power circuits to switch a relatively high Current/Voltage ON/OFF. For a relay to operate a suitable pull-in & holding current should be passed through its coil.

What is relay module?

Relay Modules A power relay module is an electrical switch that is operated by an electromagnet. The electromagnet is activated by a separate low-power signal from a micro controller. When activated, the electromagnet pulls to either open or close an electrical circuit.

What is required to interface an electromechanical relay to 8051?

Explanation: We need a ULN2803 for driving a relay because the relay coil requires 10mA or more current to be energized. If microcontroller pins are not able to provide sufficient current to drive relays then we need ULN2803 for driving relays.

What is the role of relay to connect AC appliances with microcontrollers?

Relays are switches that open and close circuits when actuated when an electrical signal. Because relays are the link between the low power digital electronics and high power devices. It allows digital circuits and digital microcontrollers to high power devices on and off.

What is required for interface and electromechanical relay 8051?

What is relay in embedded system?

A relay is a device that responds to a small current or voltage change by activating a switches or other devices. Used to remotely switch signals or power. Input control usually electrically isolated from output. Input signal determines whether switch is open or closed.
