What is Hot Switching or Cold Switching in Relays? - FAQs | Bright Toward Industrial Co., LTD.

Hot switching refers to a circuit design that applies an electric load to the reed switch during operation. Hot switching is generally not recommended if you wish to extend the relay’s operational life to the maximum. However, if your application required hot switching like ESD testers, you have the choice of TOWARD’s Mercury Reed Relays, which can withstand hot switching up to 20 Amps without much contact wear. Cold switching refers to a circuit design that ensures the contacts in the relay are fully closed before the switch load is applied. Manufacturer of Opto-MOSFET Solid State Relays, Reed Relays, and RF MEMS Switches. We mainly serve the Semiconductor Testing, ATE, BMS (Battery Management Systems), industrial machinery and Electric Vehicle industries.
