I'm using a relay with 240VAC coil and 240VAC contacts. From what I've
been advised before with relays (not 240VAC), I understand it's a good
idea to protect the contacts with a capacitor and possibly a MOV like
Is this required for AC and is it a good idea to have a MOV?
Also, I assume I need do nothing on the coil side, seeing as it's AC?
Normally, I'd expect a reverse biased diode in there somewhere.
