105degC devices target home
TTI, Inc., a global distributor of passive, connector, electromechanical and discrete components, has announced that Omron is extending its popular G2RL power relay with a new, high temperature version, aimed specifically at domestic appliance cooking and other heater control applications involving exposure to higher temperature conditions.
The new Omron G2RL-1A-E-CV is rated for use at temperatures up to 105degC, 20degC higher than standard parts. It also offers superior switching performance with longer electrical endurance of up to 100,000 operations switching 16A at 250VAC at 105degC. Initially released in SPST-NO open form, TTI expects Omron to release the higher temperature versions in SPDT type, and also to offer normally closed (NC) versions.
Available in 24 different models, Omron’s G2RL PCB relay family is ideal for ovens, washing machines, boilers and HVAC equipment. The high sensitivity type, G2RL-H, has a coil sensitivity of 250mW and is available with a UL 1446 Class F Coil Insulation system. The relays conform to VDE (EN 61810-1/EN 60255-23) and UL 508/CSA C22.2 standards and meet VDE0700 regulations for safety of household and similar electrical appliances according to VDE0110.
