Automation Systems Interconnect, Inc. (ASI) introduces of the highest density DIN rail mounted multi-channel relay line available. The new space saving CR series relays are available in densities as high as eight relays in one inch of din-rail.
A unique feature of these relay packages is the integral fuse for the relay contacts which can easily be serviced through a front entry maintenance hatch. These relays are rated for switching loads of up to 8 Amps at 250 VAC. In addition, visual indication of relay status is provided via an LED on top of the unit, thus simplifying system troubleshooting. Connections to the relay are made via pluggable connectors to speed installation and replacement if required.
Coil and contact connections are physically separated so that field and control wiring can be kept isolated from one another, thus preventing potential problems due to cross talk. Versions are now available that can plug directly into a PLC in order to provide an interposing relay.
