Failsafe Force Guided Relays from AutomationDirect

Cumming, GA --- March 28, 2018 ... AutomationDirect has extended its offerings of relays and safety products by adding Dold force guided relays. Force guided relays are electromechanical switching devices that offer safe operation via mechanically linked contacts to ensure that all contacts move at the same time, and prevent movement if any contact is immobilized.

Dold force guided relays have at least one NC contact set and one NO contact set. Dold force guided relays are available with up to 6 poles in several NO/NC combinations with 5A contact rating, and provide a large wire cross-section (12-24 AWG) to reduce thermal load on wires. Mounting options include 35mm DIN rail mount integrated relay modules or mounting socket with plug-in relay; the relays include diode protection and modules provide LED indication.

Force guided relays are priced from $12.00 and relay modules start at $29.00. Backed by a one-year warranty, Dold force guided relays are UL listed and RoHS compliant.
