My relay can be built in a variety of shapes and
relay moves rapidly toward the magnet part of
the relay when it is magnetized, thereby rapidly
closing the circuit of a motor by the relay con

types to suit different requirements, and in Fig. 1
is shown by way of an example a construction
which can be used with my invention. The relay
15 consists of an iron core I‘ with two coils or wind
trol system to attain stable condition of rest be
fore the motor is ?nally deenergized. Such de
layed action is particularly important and useful
when the motor in the system is stopped by dy

being obtained by the simple expedient of apply
the switches l, 22, for instance, 2 I‘ with the main
gummy substance to the face of the relay mag
net and/or to the face of the relay armature. My
relay therefore, acts quickly when magnet is ener
gized, but because of high viscosity of the gummy
substance, separation of the armature from the 55

certain applications in which small and inexpen
is illustrated by way of an example inFig. 2. The

have developed a delayed action relay which is
tions so that the core l is magnetized only when
of approximately the same size and cost as an
one of the coils 2, 3 is energized by closing one of
switch 23 also closed as well as a starting push
ing a layer of a non-drying viscous sticky or 50' button 24. The armature 6 then becomes at
windings 26, 21, and the motor will rotate in a.
corresponding direction. For stopping the motor,
the second switch 22 is closed thereby energizing
both ?eld windings and stopping the motor by
the opposing currents and electromotive forces.
As soon as the motor is stopped, however, it may
be desirable to disconnect the motor circuit even
if the switches are left closed. This is accom
plished by the provision of the two opposing relay
windings 2 and 3 which demagnetize the relay
core I when energized at the same time causing
the spirit of the invention, as set forth in the ap
pended claims.
I claim as my invention:
1. A delayed action relay comprising a sta
tionary member and a movable member, one of
the members being arranged to be energized for
causing mutual attraction between the members
while one of the members is energized, a portion
of each member being arranged to contact a cor
the motor circuit to be disconnected. It is very 10 responding portion of the other member in re
sponse to one of the members being energized,
and a layer of an adhesive viscous substance ap
plied to one of the contacting portions for re
tarding separation of the movable member from
the stationary member in response to deenergiz
important, however, that the motor should be
completely stopped by the opposing currents be
fore its circuit is interrupted, and the relay,
therefore, must be of delayed action type. This
purpose is satisfactorily accomplished by the use
of the adhesive cement I8, I9,
I have found that good results are obtained by
using a gummy substance prepared with rubber,
preferably latex dissolved in a non-evaporating
solvent, such as kerosene. A layer of such a
composition lasts under ordinary operating con
ditions for over a year, which is quite sufficient
ior ordinary purposes,
The layer, when it be
comes ineflective, can be easily repaired or re
newed by the application of fresh composition.
I have found that good results are obtained when
the thickness of such a layer is from about .010
to about .030 inch.
It is understood that my delayed action relay
may be further modi?ed without departing from 30
ing the energized member.
2. A delayed action relay comprising a sta
tionary electromagnet including a core and a
movable armature, means for energizing the elec
tromagnet for causing attraction between the ar
mature and the core while the electromagnet is
energized, the armature being arranged to con
tact the core in response to being attracted by
the core, and a layer of an adhesive viscous sub
stance applied to at least one of the contacting
surfaces for retarding separation of the arma
ture from the core in response to deenergizing the
