Compact power relay guarantees 8mm creepage distance
Manufacturer and distributor of electromagnetic and electronic components, ZETTLER electronics, has introduced its new AZ 6960 relay series. Housed in a low profile package with a height of 12.5mm, the sensitive subminiature power relay guarantees a creepage and clearance distance of 8mm as well as basic insulation according to IEC 60664-1. A 5kV coil-contact dielectric strength and a 1kV dielectric strength between open contacts ensure that the AZ 6960 is robust enough for even highly susceptible applications.
Contact ratings for resistive loads are 2,000VA or 320W for maximum switched power, 8A for maximum switched current and 24VDC or 250/400VAC for maximum switched voltage. Coil voltages range from 5-60VDC.
It meets IEC 61810-1 for incorporation into low voltage equipment, IEC-60335-1 for household appliances as well as UL 508 for industrial control panels. Contacts are available in silver nickel, silver tin oxide and gold plating for high performance and reliability. Additionally, the relay is available in an epoxy sealed version for automatic wave soldering and cleaning allowing reliable usage in demanding environments.
With the AZ 6960 Zettler provides cost-efficient alternatives to its relay series AZ 696 and AZ 6962.
