AutomationDirect® offers new line of industrial relays

RelaysCumming, GA --- February 15, 2004 --- AutomationDirect® is now offering several new solid-state and cube relays, ranging in price from $4.75 to $41.00.

Solid-state relays are available in 10 or 25 A DIN-rail mountable or 4 A plug-in models. DIN-rail mountable models feature a built-in integral heat sink and a red LED status lamp for easily viewing the contact status. A finger-safe cover offers protection from live input/output voltage wires or terminals. Plug-in models use the same mounting socket as industry-standard 2PDT relays, making them interchangeable with most mechanical relays.

Octal relays are available in 24 VAC or VDC (2PDT or 3PDT), 120 VAC (2PDT or 3PDT) and 240 VAC (2PDT or 3PDT) models. Octal relays feature a bus connector that allows the coil and contactor voltage to be tied together with a bus bar for easy installation.

Cube relays are available in 24, 120 and 240 VAC and 24 VDC models (1PDT, 2PDT, 3PDT or 4PDT). All cube relay models provide a minimum contact rating of 12 A.

All relays feature two indicators: an LED for the input coil and a mechanical flag for output contact status, as well as pluggable MOVs and diodes and a push-to-test with lock function. All relays fit into standard industry sockets.
