Mouser Electronics, Inc. is now stocking the new HE-S Series power relays from Panasonic Corporation. The HE-S Series relays boast the industry’s smallest multi-contact package with a capacity greater than 35A, and operate at an industry-leading low power of just 1.88W.
Panasonic HE-S Series power relays, available from Mouser Electronics, feature a high-capacity resistive switching load rating of 5A at 277VAC for 50,000 cycles and an EN60947-4-1-compliant mirror contact structure. The 30 × 36 × 40mm package reduces the relay’s footprint, maximizing board space. The HE-S Series has a normally open contact gap of 3.2mm which makes this relay VDE0126 compliant for European photovoltaic standards and meets the 2.5kV surge breakdown voltage between contacts required to be compliant with the EN61810-1 Industry standard. The coil holding voltage can be reduced up to 30 percent of the nominal coil voltage, equal to an operating power of approximately 170 mW, which contributes equipment energy savings.
The low-power HE-S Series relays can be incorporated into safe cutoff circuits for AC mains in power conditioners, photovoltaic power generators, and power storage systems. The relays are also ideal for power control applications in industrial equipment, including elevators and uninterruptable power supplies.
