I am confused about inrush current for a relay. For example, if I had 12A as the inrush current due to a motor, if the contact rating of a relay is only 6A, does a new relay need to be chosen?
As in how do you know what the inrush current rating of relays is? Is there a thumb rule, does it typically not matter due to it only being for a few milliseconds?
Example for this relay: RV8H-L-D24, Datasheet: http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/1769354.pdf How do you know what the inrush current rating is of that relay for 24Vdc?
