Omron Electronic Components LLC announced its G9E Series of DC power relays that provide a means of disconnect in high power battery applications. These relays feature a sealed, gas-filled construction that cools the arc created during switching so that the contact gap is reduced, allowing for a 70 percent reduction in overall size when compared to contactors. An added benefit is a reduction of operating noise by half. Three models come in an SPST-NO contact configuration. Operating coil voltages include 12V, 24V, 48V, 60V and 100V DC. The relays have a dielectric strength of 2,500V AC with an impulse withstand of 4,500V when operating in an ambient temperature range of –40°C to +70°C, barring any icing or condensation.
