The new relay versions are all Single Pole Double Throw (SPDT) configuration with screw clamp termination, and include the following versions: 12VDC, 24VDC, 24VUC, 120VUC and 230VUC. The VUC relay versions accept AC as well as DC input signals for greater application flexibility. The new Microseries Class 1 Division 2 RC version provides an important safety feature that can reduce overall costs and machine downtime, says the vendor. Inductive kickback protection is provided through an integrated RC circuit at the input to guarantee a safe switching threshold, eliminating leakage currents on the control side. These Microseries relays have been approved according to UL 508 as well as CSA C 22.2 for use in hazardous locations in the U.S. and Canada.
