DPDT 20 kV Relay broadens circuit access.

July 18, 2013

Available with 12 or 26.5 Vdc coil suited for drive circuits from 8–28 Vdc, 3.5 x 1.6 in. G24WF features tungsten-molybdenum contacts with unique gas mixture that makes relay suited for use in switching in high-voltage loads. Make only load switching is primarily found in circuits discharging capacitor or safety for interlocks. Able to be used in applications that traditionally required 2 SPDT relays, relay has 2 mechanically connected but electrically isolated SPDT sets of contacts.
