SPDT Relays From Tyco Electronics Conserve Valuable PCB Real Estate
HARRISBURG, Pa., February 26 - Tyco Electronics today unveiled the PCH series relay. The PCH relay has a slim design which allows designers minimize board designs and allocate board space to other components. The relay employs silver-tin oxide contacts in a 1 form C (SPDT-NO) arrangement. The normally open contacts are rated at five amps, resistive, at 277 VAC or 30 VDC. The normally closed contact set is rated for three amps. PCH relays are suitable for industrial and commercial applications ranging from HVAC equipment and household appliances to industrial automation and machinery.
DC coils are available for 5 through 48 volts. Nominal coil power requirement is 400mW. A UL Class F insulation system is standard on PCH series relays and allows operation up to 155 degrees Fahrenheit. The enclosure on the PCH relay is available in a sealed or flux-tight version.
PCH series relays are UL Recognized, CSA Certified and VDE approved. Pricing for PCH relays with a 12-volt DC coil and a sealed enclosure is $.79 in 1,000 piece quantities. Discounts are available for higher quantities.
