Carlo Gavazzi introduces RG..M series single-phase solid-state relays and contractors
March 27, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
March 27, 2019 – Carlo Gavazzi is launching the RG..M Series of single-phase solid state relays and contactors with integrated monitoring features.
The RG..M consists of solid-state switches that integrate monitoring features for quick and timely failure detection, besides the switching function.
Timely failure detection eliminates the need for re-work and prevents scrap. Detection for mains loss, load loss, SSR open and short circuit, SSR internal fault and supply out of range are now possible without a need for external components.
The RG..M of solid-state contactors and relays is equipped with an alarm LED for visual indication of fault presence, and an alarm transistor output for remote signaling.
The RG..M solid state relays are available with either an integrated heatsink, RGC..M or without the heatsink, RGS..M.
Ratings go up to 660 VAC, 65 AAC (for the RGC..M) and 90 AAC (for the RGS..M). The RG..M Series is controlled with a four to 32VDC input signal, and must be supplied with 24 VDC.
Typical applications for the RG..M include plastics machinery, packaging, semiconductor wood-processing, and drying equipment, in a situation, when an immediate detection of load or relay failure is required.
