8A subminiature power relay guarantees 8mm creepage and clearance

March 06, 2017 // By Nick Flaherty
ETTLER electronics has launched an 8A low profile power relay with a height of 12.5 mm that guarantees a creepage and clearance distance of 8 mm 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 2,000 VA or 320W for maximum switched power, 8A for maximum switched current and 24V DC or 250/400V AC for maximum switched voltage. Coil voltages range from 5 up to 60V DC.

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. The relay is also available in an epoxy sealed version for automatic wave soldering and cleaning allowing reliable usage in demanding environments and provides a cost-efficient alternative to the AZ 696 and AZ 6962 relays.
