Hawco Expands Relay Product and Stock Offering with Hongfa
Hawco, an international controls and refrigeration engineering service provider and distributor, has reached a new distribution agreement with Hongfa that expands its relay products to include higher power solid state relays and DIN rail mountable relays for a wider range of applications. Hongfa, one of the leading worldwide relay manufacturers, focuses on relay technology innovation and features quality assurance systems including ISO9001, ISO/TS16949, ISO14001, OHSAS18001, GJB9001A and IECQ QC 080000 certifications in addition to its products listed as UL, CUR, VDE, TüV and CQC approved.
Hawco combines this comprehensive, high-quality relay product offering with advanced engineering support and premier customer service to meet customers’ design requirements. “With our technical, application and field based support focused on key markets within the refrigeration and thermal management markets, Hongfa is a logical partner that provides our customers with a broad and cost-effective relay product offering ranging from solid state to high-power miniature electromechanical relays,” said Gary Bennett, Hawco Managing Director.
Hawco’s expanded relay family includes 25A and 50A PCB and panel-mounted solid state relays that offer 3-phase control and support a switch line voltage of up to 530Vrms. Designed to switch ‘on’ at near zero cross, the solid state relays ensure low RFI and electrical noise, making them ideal for control equipment and HVAC applications.
The DIN rail mountable solid state relays feature a specially designed tapered heat sink and improved thermal interface to enable the heat generated at 30A to be dissipated efficiently. Available in 10, 20 and 30 amp versions with 240 or 480 VAC output, the DIN rail solid sate relays are ideal for industrial and automation control applications. Hawco’s miniature high power flange mounted and plug-in type electromechanical relays provide 5A to 20A switching and are ideal for control applications.
Ideal for automotive applications, Hawco also provides relays ranging from miniature 15A types to high power, heavy-duty relays rated up to 70A at 13.5V DC. Hawco’s engineering services help customer solve problems associated with miniaturization, performance, energy-efficiency, and cost. Hawco relays are available from stock to three weeks and are well suited for telecom switching, domestic appliance, heating controls, motor drive, vending machine, fire and security system, medical equipment, automotive, air conditioning, refrigeration, industrial controls, audio system, traffic control equipment and generator applications.
