Omron adds high current relay for home appliance and industrial applications

Omron Electronic Components has extended its G2RL power relay family with a new extra high capacity 23A model, for switching the heaviest current loads in home appliance, industrial and HVAC applications.

The G2RL-1A-E2-CV-HA features a low profile of just 16.7mm and is rated for operating temperatures up to 105°C. The 23A switching capacity of this model is significantly higher – previously the maximum capacity was 16A.

Features of the new relay include reinforced coil-contact insulation able to withstand a 10 kV Impulse voltage. The relay conforms to EN60335-1 for the Safety of Household appliances and has a Class F (UL1446) coil insulation system. The relays also conform to TUV(EN 61810-1) and UL 508/CSA C22.2 and CQC(GB21711.1) standards. Clearance and creepage distances are at least 8mm. The new relay is available in SPST-NO form.

Omron’s G2RL PCB relay family is intended for low profile, high capacity switching solution for ovens, washing machines, boilers and HVAC equipment. The family offers a wide variety of 15.7mm high single pole, double pole relays with switching capacities of 8-16A, including a high sensitivity type with a coil sensitivity of 250mW. The relays conform to VDE (EN 61810-1/EN 60255-23) and UL 508/CSA C22.2 standards and CQC(GB21711.1) and meet VDE0700 regulations for safety of household and similar electrical appliances.
