PLC-RELAY for High-Current Applications
MIDDLETOWN, Pa. - Phoenix Contact's newest PLC-RELAY is a high-current terminal block relay with plug-in SPDT contacts. It is designed for applications requiring a nominal current rating up to 10 amps, or those that need to improve the electrical life of the contacts.
Measuring 14 millimeters wide, the relay's contacts are much larger than a standard 6-millimeter terminal block relay. These contacts help to extend service intervals two to three times longer than the standard relay, while at the same time adding security for uncertain load conditions.
The high-current terminal block relays are a reliable alternative to ice cube relays. In addition to saving space, they feature a patented plug-in bridging system, eliminating the time-consuming daisy chain wiring and reducing installation time. The high-current terminal block relays connect seamlessly to 6- and 14-millimeter PLC-RELAYS using this press fit bridge.
Like all Phoenix Contact PLC-RELAY products, the high-current relay has integrated protection. The reverse polarity and kick-back diode are included to protect the relay and the controls. It is available with either screw or spring terminals.
