RU Series


Overview

The adaptable RU series are available in either 2 pole (DPDT) or 4 pole (4DPDT) models. Both RU2 and RU4 models have multiple standard features, including a non-polarized green indicator LED, a mechanical indicator flag, an easily accessible and replaceable marking plate, and a manual latching lever, coded orange/red for AC coil and green/blue for DC coil.

What sets the RU relays apart from other relays is the unique internal construction. There is no internal wiring, which means no weak solder points and a completely lead-free manufacturing process. The contacts are cadmium-free as well, making the RU relays environmentally-friendly. All RU relays are also manufactured by a totally automated assembly process which means the relay is of the highest quality because the possibility of human error has been eliminated during the manufacturing process.

IDEC has developed an innovative and simple method of identifying the RU series of relays. Several different colored marking plates are now available that can be used to replace the standard marking plate found on the top of the RU relay.


These marking plates are available in yellow (standard color), green, orange, blue or white. In addition, the marking plates can be further identified by using either a pencil or pen to write directly on them. You can, in effect, create your own customized label that is actually part of the relay. The marking plates are located on the top of the relay rather than on the socket.

In addition, IDEC has developed the RU relay with low signal switching bifurcated contacts. The RU42S model has a maximum contact rating of 3 amps 250V AC while maintaining a minimum switching load of 0.1mA @ 1V DC, allowing you to use this relay for all your dry circuit switching needs.

  • RU2: DPDT, 10A (250V AC/30V DC)
  • RU4: 4PDT, 6A (250V AC/30V DC)
  • RU42: 4PDT bifurcated 3A (250V AC/30V DC) for dry contact circuits
  • Quality design - solder free construction (lead free)
  • Latching & momentary check button levers
  • Non-polarized green indicator LED & mechanical indicator flag standard
  • AC/DC color coded manual latching levers
  • Snap-on marking plates available in yellow (standard color), green, orange, blue or white for easy labeling & identification
  • Available in 12V, 24V, or 110V DC; 24V, 110-120V, 220-240V AC

RY/RM Series


Overview

The RY/RM series of relays satisfy applications for lower level switching needs such as pilot lights or logic level devices. The RY has standard gold plated contacts to prevent contact oxidation from affecting circuit continuity, while optional Palladium alloy bifurcated contacts reduce contact bounce and allow circuit switching in the micro-amp range.

Terminated with a standard footprint of blade plug-in terminals or with PCB pins, the RY/RM series fit into many competitors' sockets as well. Available in 4PDT or two different arrangements of DPDT: the RM2 uses the same socket as the RY4, but the RY2 is a true two pole relay that occupies half the width of the four pole. Available options include manual check buttons, LED indicators, or top flanged dust covers for direct surface mounting.

Key Features

  • High density, 4PDT in a package less than .840" wide
  • 4PDT and a "true" DPDT model
  • RY Series gold plated contacts standard, Palladium alloy bifurcated crossbar contacts optional for extremely low level applications
  • RM2 features fine silver 5A contacts
  • Blade plug-in or PCB terminals
  • Options include indicator light, check button, and top mounting bracket
  • Mounting options include top mounting, DIN socket, PCB socket, or panel mount socket

Solid State Relays

RSC Relays


Overview

RSC relays have technology to dissipate the heat away from main switching components, making them a great buy. Other relays may require you to add your own heat sink or deal with a burned out product, but the new RSC relays from IDEC have a built-in heat sink making them easy to install and get running. The heat sink, along with an epoxy-free design, eliminates the need to de-rate your relay and also increases its life expectancy. And an LED status indicator makes sure you can see it working.

The slim design of the RSC relays provides a compact unit for DIN Rail or panel mounting without wasting space. 20A and 30A current ranges are 22.5mm, while the relays with 45A current are 45mm. All RSC relays are UL recognized, CE marked, as well as being lead-free and RoHS compliant.

Key Features

  • Choice of 20A, 30A and 45A models
  • Slim design allows for compact DIN rail or panel mounting
  • Built-in heat sink
  • Epoxy-free design and improved thermal impedance
  • LED indicator
  • Finger-safe terminals
  • Zero voltage switching
  • UL recognized, CSA Certifi ed, TUV Approved, CE Marked
  • Lead-free and RoHS compliant
  • EMC (Level 3) & IEC 62314 compliant
