Omron Electronic Components Europe has extended its relay portfolio with the introduction of its G6RN-E, for heat pumps, smart building, factory automation and energy applications. The latest model provides current load to 10A, with extended dielectric strength to 6000VAC, high sensitivity with 220mW coil power consumption.

The new G6RN-E relays provide greater safety, conforming glow-wire test requirements for household and similar electrical appliances to IEC/EN60335-1 and conforming to explosion-proof certification IEC/EN60079-15. Fulfilling international safety standards for resistance to ignition. This makes them ideal to ensure the safety of air conditioning equipment such as air conditioners and heat pumps.

G6RN-E relays introduce a flux protection housing, offering 6000VAC dielectric voltage between coil and contact. Further features include a high insulation with an 8mm insulation distance, robust impulse withstand voltage of 10kV between coil and contacts, high sensitivity with 220mW coil power consumption, and ambient operating temperature of 85°C and the standard model conforms to UL, VDE standards. Conformity to recommended building and factory automation applications extend to heat pump controllers and inverters, as well as gas boilers, temperature controllers and PLC. Terminal arrangement and contact ratings are the same as existing Omron G6RL relays with same pin.
