Relays are electronically operated switches. It has two states, either on or off. Traditionally, the switch can be controlled by introducing a low-power voltage across its connectors, allowing a usually larger voltage to flow through the relay. Relays come in different states, open by default - allowing current to flow through only when a signal voltage is passed, or closed by default - where the higher voltage current will pass through the relay until a signal voltage is introduced.
Relays can be found in elevators, fans and air conditioners. With the advent of semiconductors, solid-state relays are commonplace now.
Connectors are basically terminals that allow two electrical components to connect to each other - Usually a wire to a circuit board. The connection is removable which allows for maintainability. Connectors can usually be classified by their gender - Male or Female.
Male connectors attach to a Female connector which closes a circuit, allowing current to flow through two physically separated components. Connectors are found in computers and many other electronics.
