    Does anyone here happen to know the LOWEST values that relays are available in? Specifically, can they be found in fractions of volts?

    Electronic relays will work in fractions of an amp. Good for switching relays but won't carry large amounts of currents.
    Do you mind if I ask what the application is?

    Actually it's just a theoretical design as of now, and I'm trying to think of as many ways as possible to achieve the final goal. It has something to do with voltage-based switching of things, but I wouldn't wanna say what just yet. (gotta keep SOME things quiet for a bit [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]) Suffice to say it will be a pain in the ass to build no matter how I go about trying it.

    No problem Abe. Regardless, if you're working with very low voltages, electronic relays are the way to go. They're quiet, and can be used to switch on larger relays, or higher voltage circuitry if necessary, that will take more, or standard voltage.
    They come in a no. of configurations as well, and can be of locking or non locking design, as well as reverse polarity.
    If I can help let me know.
