Inductive Load

Inductive Load Protection Circuit

An inductive load is an electrical device that is made of wound or coiled wire, for example transformers, solenoid coils, motors or electro-mechanical relays that causes inrush current. In other words, it is a type of load in which the voltage wave reaches its peak before the current. Since inductive loads generate Back EMF, Contact Suppression circuits are required. Reed Switches being used to switch inductive loads such as motors will require contact protection.
