“The 8501KA alternating relay was developed to provide a superior and cost-competitive alternative to existing alternating plug-in relays,” says Dipin Jain, marketing product manager at the vendor. “The relay offers 12-amp contact ratings while utilizing less space on the DIN rail. The product also works well as a drop-in replacement in the MRO industry and offers features that appeal to OEM panel builders.” While the 8501KA alternating relay specifically is designed for the pumping industry, its design is suitable for any application that requires a device to provide switching capabilities to control multiple loads, says the vendor.
