Miniature 6-A Power Relay Uses Just 140 mW For Activation

The FTR-LY 6-A power relay consumes very little power for activation—just 140 mW of coil power at a 250-V ac contact rating. The 27.8- by 4.9-mm relay has 8 mm minimum of creepage and clearance from coil to contact, which provides high-insulation properties that comply with VDE0700 standards.

Use of cadmium-free materials meets the requirements of many environmental programs. A lead-free version is also available. Intended applications include industrial and programmable-logic-controller applications.

Mechanical life is 10 million operations (at 250 V ac with a normally open 6-A resistive load). Other specifications include 100-V dielectric strength between open contacts/4000 V between coil and contacts, 600-V surge strength, and an operating temperature range of −40°C to 85°C.

Available from stock, the FTR-LY comes in a 1 Form A and 1 Form C. A right-angle version is also available. Pricing for a FTR-LYAA012V (1 Form A) is $1.70 in 10,000-unit quantities.
