TE Connectivity introduces “smallest in class” relay
The Potter & Brumfield relay T9G series is claimed to be the smallest in the industry. It enables PCB space savings without compromising performance, says TE Connectivity.
The 30A PCB relay is for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) appliances and industrial control applications. According to TE the Potter & Brumfield relay T9G series is the smallest relay in its class, with a 30 per cent smaller package size and 13 per cent less PCB floor space, while keeping the standard footprint, allowing manufacturers to add more components on PCBs without having to compromise on relay performance.
TE’s T9G series is a versatile relay with UL, CQC and VDE certifications. Its PCB and quick-connect terminations also make the relay user-friendly and easy to install. TE’s T9G series meets IEC 61810-1 for reinforced insulation due to its breakthrough design where the distance between coil and contacts has been increased, while the overall package is smaller. This helps to prevent circuit flashover from control to load, resulting in a safer application.
The T9G has a dielectric strength of 4kV between coil and contact rating providing better galvanic isolation. The increased surge resistance can withstand 8kV providing a higher degree of protection for the application.
The T9G uses a 900mW coil that provides a 10 per cent power reduction versus conventional 1W 30A power PCB relays.
