Relays & Timers
Designed with attention to every detail, IDEC relays and timers go the extra mile in performance and dependability. IDEC produces a wide selection of PCB, Interface, Power, and Solid State Relays to fit your application requirements. Over the years IDEC has introduced many new innovations to its family of relays. Thanks to technological advances and creative engineering, our relays have continued to set a new standard as we strive to meet the needs of our customers. Global approvals and acceptance only prove how IDEC has made every effort to make its relays the best. Our vision to surpass our competitors in consistency, reliability and quality in the global market has become a reality.
What sets the RU relays apart from other relays is the unique internal construction. There is no internal wiring, which means no weak solder points and a completely lead-free manufacturing process. The contacts are cadmium-free as well, making the RU relays environmentally-friendly. All RU relays are also manufactured by a totally automated assembly process which means the relay is of the highest quality because the possibility of human error has been eliminated during the manufacturing process.
IDEC has developed an innovative and simple method of identifying the RU series of relays. Several different colored marking plates are now available that can be used to replace the standard marking plate found on the top of the RU relay.
These marking plates are available in yellow (standard color), green, orange, blue or white. In addition, the marking plates can be further identified by using either a pencil or pen to write directly on them. You can, in effect, create your own customized label that is actually part of the relay. The marking plates are located on the top of the relay rather than on the socket.
In addition, IDEC has developed the RU relay with low signal switching bifurcated contacts. The RU42S model has a maximum contact rating of 3 amps 250V AC while maintaining a minimum switching load of 0.1mA @ 1V DC, allowing you to use this relay for all your dry circuit switching needs.
IDEC interface relays provide a compact solution for general purpose relay requirements. The RV8 series interface relays are ideal for PLC and other controller output, industrial automation, panel builders, assembly machine applications and other applications that require a high switching capability in a compact space. The RV8 relays can be used as a universal interfaces between the controller and the actuator to switch small and medium size loads. Installation time is greatly reduced with pre-assembled relays and sockets – with either screw connections or spring clamp terminations. Replacement relays and sockets are also available. Optional accessories include jumpers, spacers and marking plates to facilitate wiring and quick identifications. The primary versions available are:
RV8H - 6mm
The 6mm electromechnical relays ave a 6A contact rating, with voltage input ranges from 5VDC to 240VAC- with several universal versions wich can accept both AC and DC inputs.
RV8H - 14mm
The 14mm electromicanical relay have 6A to 16A contact ratings in a 1-pole or 2-pole relay.
Both RV8H electromicanical relays sizes includes Class I, Div 2 ratings for use in Hazardous Locations.
The RY series of relays satisfy applications for lower level switching needs such as pilot lights or logic level devices. The RY has standard gold plated contacts to prevent contact oxidation from affecting circuit continuity, while optional Palladium alloy bifurcated contacts reduce contact bounce and allow circuit switching in the micro-amp range.
Terminated with a standard footprint of blade plug-in terminals or with PCB pins, the RY series fit into many competitors' sockets as well. The RY2 is a true two pole relay that occupies half the width of the four pole. Available options include manual check buttons, LED indicators, or top flanged dust covers for direct surface mounting.
Carrying worldwide approvals including UL, CSA, TUV and CE marking (TUV and CE on tubular pin types only), they are ready to travel anywhere your application needs take them. Available options include manual check buttons, LED indicators, or side flange covers for direct surface mounting. When coupled with IDEC's high quality sockets, they form an unbeatable combination.
The RJ22 model has a maximum contact rating of 1amp at 250V AC, while maintaining a minimum switching load of 100uA 1V DC, allowing customers to use this relay for their dry circuit switching needs. With the shortest width on the market RJ bifurcated relays are durable, compact and available with plug-in or PCB terminals.
A non-polarized green LED indicator is available (except on the simple type), utilizing IDEC’s unique light-guide structure to enable these relays to be identified by the illuminated green LED. Diode, reverse polarity diode, and RC circuits are also available with peak inverse voltages of 1000V.
Like the rest of the RJ family, RJ22 PCB bifurcated relays have been manufactured with attention to even the smallest details. Using our automated manufacturing technologies, an innovative design was utilized in the internal construction of moving parts ensuring the highest-quality, reliable relays. This includes a unique return spring structure eliminating unnecessary weak points, allowing for increased electrical conductivity and longer service life. Both DPDT and DPST-NO contact configuration types are available in a flux-tight structure.
RJ Plug-in and PCB Terminal relays (with bifurcated contacts) are UL recognized, CSA certified, VDE approved and CE marked.
Choose from panel or DIN rail mounting. Unlike the competition, when DIN rail mounted, RL relays don’t require a socket or adaptor. Quick Connect terminals allow faster installation on commercial applications, while screw terminations are ideal for industrial applications.
