C is the "common" contact. It switches between the NO and the NC contacts.
NO is "normally open". The connection between it and C is OPEN then the relay coil is NOT powered.
NC is "normally closed". The connection between it and C is CLOSED then the relay coil is NOT powered.
When the relay is powered C disconnects from NC and connects to NO.
