Arc - an electrical discharge between mating relay contacts when an energized circuit is interrupted. Contact bounce is intermittent unwanted opening of closed contacts or closing of open contacts. Gap - opening closed contacts to interrupt the electrical circuit. Breakdown… Read More »High voltage vacuum relays. Basic terms and definitions.
