An anti-short cycle relay locks out compressor operation for five minutes each time the compressor shuts off, which prevents short cycling and increases compressor life. An energy management relay allows the unit to be shut off from a remote 24-volt signal like a time clock. A night setback relay is part of the night setback control system.
