- Arcing occur in a relay's contact due to closing and opening action. Does the arcing depends on the type of load? For example will there be any arc in a resistive load?
Main Question or Discussion Point
Arcing in a contact occurs due to open and close action of the switch. I am curious if the arc intensity depends on the type of load. For example the arcing (arc intensity) due to induction load will be greater than arcing due to resistive load?
