Space saving, energy saving power relay from Omron

Hoofddorp, Netherlands, Wednesday, 24 February 2016 -- Omron Electronic Components has unveiled a new compact and efficient power relay, capable of switching 5A at 250VAC for industrial control and building automation applications.

According to Omron, the new G6DN is not only the smallest design of its specification on the market, but also offers the lowest coil power consumption -- just 110mW. This makes it extremely efficient, as it requires only a minimal amount of energy to switch the relay. Its width is 5mm, making it ideal for high density mounting, and it is 20mm long and 12.5mm high.

According to Omron's Senior European Product Marketing Manager, Andries de Bruin, "Customers are under continuous pressure to reduce the size and power consumption of the systems that they create, and the G6DN is exactly the kind of space saving, energy saving solution they are looking for."

The performance and high reliability of the G6DN has been achieved with a cross bar twin contact architecture and silver nickel and gold plated contacts. The relay is offered in an industry standard SIL (single in line) terminal arrangement to save space. The most sensitive areas of the relay are fully sealed, to protect against plastic dust particles. As a result of these design features, the G6DN has a rated life of 80K operations at 5A / 250VAC.

The G6DN meets EN61010-1, EN61010-2-201 for reinforced insulation and EN60335-1 for basic insulation. It can withstand surges of up to 6kV.
