New Mini Power Relay from Weidmuller
Versatile miniature relays.
Richmond, VA — Weidmuller's new generation of pluggable relays meet a wide range of industrial switching requirements. The DRM SERIES relay complements the company's proven electromechanical and solid-state relays that are installed in millions of devices worldwide.

The relays are suitable for most industrial and commercial applications. They are available in 2 and 4 changeover versions for AC and DC coil input voltages. The relay contacts are made from a heavy electroplated silver alloy that is 270µ thick. This precious metal contact surface allows for a wide range of loads, from only a few milliamps up to 10amps per contact, and ensures added reliability and extended relay life.

In addition, the new relays offer full load switching capability over a wide temperature range of -40 to +60°C without the need for de-rating. All DRM relays can be used in temperatures up to +80°C with derated switching capabilities.

The compact relays provide optional features that increase reliability and simplify installation. An integrated LED with a unique color for the AC and DC coils provides clear status indication and quick troubleshooting. Color-coded test levers for mechanical contact operation enable users to simulate switching status, for simplified commissioning and service.

The DIN-rail mountable relay sockets have high quality screw terminals that accept stripped wire, insulated bootlace ferrules or insulated fork lugs.

All products are CE and cURus approved and RoHS-compliant, for use in industrial applications worldwide.
