Original Press Release:

Three-Phase Power!

SAN DIEGO, CA - October 8, 2007 - Crouzet's new GN3 series three-phase & motor reversing solid-state relays are the latest addition to the Crouzet offering. As with the GN and GNR range of products, the GN3 utilizes the latest proven technology for superior thermal efficiency, noise immunity, and reliability. Furthermore, the EMC compliant design (level 3) and built-in transient protection provide an additional level of reliability in harsh industrial environments. These relays are perfectly suited for a wide array of three-phase motor and heating applications. They are also ideal for use in applications switching multiple outputs with a single control signal. Available with ratings up to 50A per phase @ 600Vac (530Vac with internal snubber network), with either a DC, AC, or low-voltage AC (18-36Vac) input.

GN3 / GN0 features and benefits include;

DBC Substrate for Superior I2T and Thermal Performance
Ratings up to 50A per phase @ 600Vac
Built-In Internal Transient Protection
LED Input Status Indicator (2 LEDs in GN0 Motor-Reversing Relays)
IP20 Touch-Safe Housing
100k UL508 Endurance Rating
Industry Standard Package
UL/CSA/TuV Approved, CE Compliant
RoHS Compliant
Complies with IEC 62314 (2006-05)
