I ordered several OMRON “ice cube” 110 VAC relays, contacts rated for 10A (LY2NJ). When I inspected them under a microscope I noticed the contact wires are AWG 24. The rest of my setup uses AWG 18. My gut instinct was to open the relays and solder in some short runs of the AWG 18 patch wire. Was this overkill or prudent? I do require switching 10 A.
The left relay is the original. The right relay with the red wire is the modified relay.
