Omron announces worlds smallest and lightest high capacity DC power relay
Omron today announced the release on October 1, 2012 of the G9EN DC power relay, the world’s smallest and lightest high capacity DC power relay of its class. The relay is 50% smaller and lighter than Omron’s previous comparable relays thanks to the use of newly developed proprietary sealing technologies and new magnetic control methods. With the global expansion of the market for environmentally-friendly clean energy vehicles such as hybrid and fuel-cell cars, there is quickly growing demand for mileage extension and new high-capacity battery DC load control technologies.
Omron has been working over the last decade to meet the needs of clean energy car manufacturers for greater circuit design flexibility and components that enable down-sizing and weight reduction of onboard electrical equipment. With the G9EN (60A), Omron is taking down-sizing and weight reduction to the next level, and the company is also preparing for the release of other advanced new products including a 150A main relay, and an air-break switch pre-charge relay.
