Many remote mount solenoids look identical on the outside. However, they can be very different on the inside. Beside the different internal circuits, these can be rated for continuous duty or
intermittent duty use.
Continuous duty solenoids are wound with very fine wire and draw very little amperage. The contacts in continuous duty solenoids
will usually have a lower amperage rating than that of the intermittent duty type. These are normally used as tilt trim relays. This
type of solenoid can also be used for a variety of applications where a remote relay is needed to power a motor or other device.
Intermittent duty solenoids are wound with much heavier wire and draw more amperage. The contacts have a very high amperage
rating. If these stay energized for extended periods of time they heat up and eventually burn out the coil inside the solenoid. This
type of solenoid is normally used as a starter motor relay.
