Omron launches high voltage DC relay for inrush current prevention

Omron Electronic Components Europe has launched a small footprint DC power relay that frees up PCB space but without compromising performance.

The G5PZ-X is suitable for inrush protection circuits or for controlling equipment such as energy storage systems (ESS) for solar panels or vehicle to home (V2H) charging points for electric vehicles (EVs).

The device features Omron arc control technology and is able to deliver reliable high capacity DC bi-directional switching on a small footprint.

A single G5PZ-X relay, at just W15.2 x L26.4mm, covers 200VDC/20A, but two relays can be connected in series to switch currents at to 400VDC/20A.

This level of performance can help protect delicate components from very brief load peaks before the circuit stabilizes, or for main circuit shutdown.

A pair of G5PZ-X relays offer comparable performance to the nearest competitor device, but with reduced device length and height (L26.4 x H29.5mm).
