>Chris made reference to the coil resistance of the relay.  I have an Amphenol relay with a 110VAC coil.  I believe it's R is ~550 ohms.  It's not to hand just now, but I will check it later.  Thanks to Peter for that rule of thumb - I will need to know that >too at some stage!
The spec of my coil is 550 ohms and measures out nearer to 500.  In comparison, the 26V DC models are all around 200 ohms.  From a DC perspective, that would seem to bear out everyone's experiences then.  I still have no idea how they actually work with AC applied :>)
