I have an audio amp that has a circuit protection relay in the audio signal. The relay is closed for normal operation (so current to the coil only comes on in the event protection is needed). My question is this - I really want to move this circuit protection function out of the audio signal path and into the main power circuit. But it seems that if I simply move it, then the amp will shut down when the relay opens - but when power turns off, current to the coil will stop immediately and the amp will turn back on immediately. If the protection circuit is still triggered, then this on-off will simply continue to cycle. Obviously not what I want. Any suggestions? Is there a different type of relay - maybe a timer relay - that would solve this cycling problem? I am in the US, so mains are 120V 60Hz, relay coil voltage is 12vdc, amp PSU is running 63vdc, and .the existing relay is rated at 15A for 250VAC and 24vdc. Thanks for your help.
