    Hi there everyone,

    I'm pretty much electrical noob so long story short- I would like to know, if there is a component that is powered by 24V and it sets (contact) 230V on and off.
    For example: I have a motor that needs 230V and this 24V component is connected between power supply and motor. I power up this component with 24V it sets the route (turns on like a contact) between power supply and motor (meaning 230 V will run through that 24V component) and motor starts running. When I turn it off (24V component) motor will turn off.

    Hopefully my explanation was is ok.
    Could You please give me advice?

    Thank You Very much

    You need a relay with a 24v switching coil, this will switch the 230v provided the contacts are suitably rated. The contact rating will be based on your 230v load.
