Newbie here, just wanted to ask some clarification regarding reading datasheet since i don't quite find a standard way to determine switching speed. I already had surf and the closest one was the question by Glavić What does CPM unit mean in relay specification?. This means its maximum operation is 1 cycle every 10 seconds.
I have a school project where I need my relay to have a switching frequency of at least 1 cycle a second and my current relay that i have is this: https://www.digikey.com.au/products/en?keywords=alf1p05. Upon reading its datasheet, i find a max. operating speed 20 times/minutes (does this mean 1 time = 1 cycle = 1 on & off operation?? meaning 1 cycle every 3 seconds?)
then i find this other relay https://media.digikey.com/pdf/Data%20Sheets/Panasonic%20Electric%20Works%20PDFs/jm.pdf having a max.operating speed of 180cpm. (does this mean 180 on & off operation every minute? 1 cycle every 33ms?)
I hope you can help me at least understand this one clearly, sorry if I'm somewhat indecisive with this one.
edited: i canvas all relays on digikey, mouser, etc and every relay detasheet don't have this 'max.operating speed' spec info like this one https://www.mouser.com/ds/2/418/NG_DS_RT1_1014-729126.pdf, how can i determine the speed of this relay or other relays w/o relying on the max.operating speed spec info?
