Omron adds two new MOSFET relays
High dielectric strength, high-temperature, and highly responsive miniature MOSFET relay introduced by Omron.
Omron Electronic Components Europe has expanded its range of MOSFET relays with two new devices. The new Omron G3VM-401 and G3VM-601 offer high dielectric strength and high operating temperatures for applications in electric metres and industrial control. The new G3VM-41UR pot is a highly responsive device offering low on-resistance and output capacitance in ultra-compact VSON packaging, aimed at test and measurement applications especially ATE.
Operating temperatures can be a particular challenge for designers of electricity metres as these units have to be sealed to prevent tampering. The new Omron G3VM-401 and G3VM-601 devices address this issue as they can withstand ambient temperatures of up to 110°C. They also offer a high dielectric strength of 5,000V rms AC. The devices are offered in both surface mount and through-hole form, with SPST-NO contacts. They are power efficient, with a low trigger current of just 2mA. The G3VM-401 can handle a load current of up to 400V at 120mA and the G3VM-601 can handle up to 600V at 90mA.
The new G3VM-41UR features a low CxR of just 10pF*Ω and can handle currents of up to 40V at 0.25A – exceptional for a device of this size. It is an excellent compact alternative to SOP4 package devices and reed relays. Its low resistance of just 2Ω and low output capacitance of just 5pF make it ideal for switching test signals in ATE systems, as well as for other test and measurement and communications equipment applications.
