What is the difference between relay and contactor? 

Answer: 

There is a lot of confusion around the industry about the difference between Relays and Contactors.

Relays are used to control contacts of an electrical circuit due to a change of parameters or conditions in the same circuit or any other associated circuit.

Contactors, on the other hand, are used to interrupt or establish connections in an electrical circuit repeatedly under different conditions.
