Omron introduces extended temperature ratings for dense packed power relays

Omron Electronic Components Europe has addressed the need for denser packed onboard relays with the introduction of higher temperature relays that provide Class-F coil insulation.

Extending the G5NB-1A4-EL-HA from Class B to Class F, the G5NB-1A4-EL-HA-CF type provides 5A switching from -40℃ to 105℃ PCB in a fully sealed power relay. These relays allow a higher density of parts by operating at higher temperatures than their predecessors.

Fully sealed, the G5NB-1A4-EL-HA-CF type relays ensure a longer lifetime in environments up to 85℃. Alternatively, they can deliver the same lifetime as existing G5NB-E relays in considerably harsher temperature environments.

VDE approval standards rate the Class F relay up to 50Kops at 105℃ and up to 100Kops at 85℃.

Applications range from HVAC and heat pumps, through domestic cooking equipment, washing machines and refrigerators, to industrial devices such as PLCs, I/O terminals and temperature controllers.

The G5NB-EL-CF relays are available now from authorised distributors and stockists throughout the UK and Europe.
