A dry contact is a contact that does not provide voltage. For instance, the push-to-talk switch of a microphone, which just closes a circuit without providing voltage.

A wet contact is a contact that will provide voltage when closed, like the switch on the wall that activates the 110 VAC outlet to turn a lamp on in a room.
