"Break-delay-make" relay?

by russdot   Last Updated September 11, 2019 19:25 PM

I'm new to relays and still learning terminology. "Make before break" and "break before make" both make sense to me.

Is there such a thing, or a specific term for "break before make" relay that can delay between breaking and making connection?

I'm attempting to trigger a projector screen up/down signal using a relay, but it seems to be switching too fast. If I manually connect the wires, things seem to work (i.e. connect COMMON + DOWN, disconnect, connect COMMON + UP)

There are time delay relays. Most relays are break before make by the nature of the contact structure. search "time delay relay", then ask the application folks from whatever manufacturer(s) you choose
