Standex-Meder Electronics announces SHV Relay

SHV Reed RelayStandex-Meder Electronics, a manufacturer of reliable potted SIL-High Voltage relays, announces a newly improved molded SIL-HV version that is smaller and more compact. It features an internal magnetic shield that is ideal for a high density board assembly. Having a high-breakdown (hold off) voltage of 4kVDC and a typical contact resistance of 70 mOhm allows for the best condition for high voltage test and measurement applications.

Other improvements include a high-voltage and high-power switching capability of 100 W/1000 VDC / 1 A, breakdown voltage and dielectric strength up to 4 kVDC, pulsed carry-current up to 3A , an optional suppression diode, and better washability resistance and rating.

The enhancements made to the SIL-HV relay provides improved durability within humid environments. The insulation resistance has the ability to serve applications of up to 10 TOhm between coil and contact. This relay’s updated compact molded packaging design also delivers better resistance for high demand applications. Especially vital when used with an eco-friendly aqueous cleaning solution with subsequent drying after the soldering process, the SIL-HV relay is RoHS compliant and is currently in the process of being UL listed.
