Omron announces its highest load capacity AC PCB relay

Omron Electronic Components Europe has extended its AC relay portfolio to provide its highest current and voltage capacity for AC PCB relays. The G9KA-E operates with voltage capacity up to 1000V AC, and current up to 300A which is one of the highest specifications in the current PCB relay market.

The Omron G9KA high power relay series guarantees a mechanical lifetime of 100,000 operations. The low contact resistance of 0.2mOhm (maximum) minimises contact terminal heat which allows it to carry high current loads. The plunger-type relay structure provides high endurance and lower power consumption and the terminals improve heat dissipation to enhance safety and longevity.

The AC PCB relays can be used in uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and grid tie inverters. The G9KA series can be applied to inverters for photovoltaic and energy storage systems. 

The G9KA-E version is suitable for use in 200 to 400kVA / 600 to 800V AC inverters. Omron’s G9KA-E AC PCB relay is also ideal for UPS input and output lines, providing disconnect from the grid and the load. The G9KA-E is suitable for power supplies that incorporate 100 to 200kVA, three-phase 400V AC I/O circuits.

The relays can be used to replace conventional contactors in all applications. In addition they reduce system weight and size whilst enabling simpler manual or automated assembly. 

In April 2022, Omron announced that its Electromechanical Components (EMC) division was renamed as Omron Device and Module Solutions (DMS).

Omron Electronic Components Europe is the European subsidiary of the Device and Module Solutions division. 

Omron Electronic Components Europe supports its customers in Western and Eastern Europe through eight regional offices, a network of local offices and partnerships with specialist, local, regional and global distributors.

Omron specialises in the field of automation offering industrial automation and electronic components to social infrastructure systems, healthcare, and environmental solutions. 

Established in 1933, Omron operates in around 120 countries and regions.
