Panasonic Introduces the AQ-A Solid-State Relay


Critics notwithstanding, modern electromechanical relays are still, to this day, the number one choice for switching electric loads, thanks to their excellent reliability, compact size, and power dissipation capacity.

But when it comes to designing circuits where the number of switching cycles is of crucial importance, it would be unthinkable for today s engineers to do without solid-state relays. As a complement to its broad range of electromechanical relays, Panasonic Electric Works is therefore continually extending its solid-state relay portfolio.
Featuring a TRIAC output of either the zero-cross or the random type, the new AQ-A solid-state relay is suitable for switching AC loads at 15A, 25A, and 40A. As a result, it affords optimal load control for components such as heaters, motors, fans, or lamps. In addition, its wide input voltage range (4#32VDC) now provides engineers with a greater design leeway. Further advantages include its low driving power consumption, a high rated input/output insulation voltage of 4000V, and a nearly unlimited number of switching cycles.

The AQ-A comes in the standard "hockey puck" housing, which measures only 25mm in height. The standard unit package for this new series includes an integrated varistor for surge protection as well as an LED indicator.

Additional features are available upon request.
