Now available from Transonics the new HF3FA and HF115F HONGFA relays have been designed specifically for lighting control systems. Working in conjunction with PIR or other sensors these new relays may be used in in building automation, energy conservation, safety and security systems.
The HF3FA sub-miniature relay measures just 19.00 x 15.20 x 15.50mm and provides a 15A switching capability with either a normally open contact or change-over configuration. Housing material flammability meets UL94, V-0, UL Class F insulation is available and electrical breakdown comparative tracking index to CTI 250 may be specified. Coil operating voltages for the HONGFA HF3FA may be specified as 3, 5, 9, 12, 18, 24 or 48VDC.
Two models of the HF115F relay are available both with either normally open or change-over contacts. The HF115F-I has a high inrush capability of 80A at 125V and the HF115F-S features a special contact construction capable of switching an incandescent lamp load up to 3000W 230VAC with a peak inrush capability of 800Amps.
Both models provide a 5KV dielectric strength, meet reinforced isolation requirements, have a creepage distance of 10mm, low package size with overall dimensions just 29.00 x 12.70 x 15.70mm. UL Insulation Class F and IEC 60335-1 if may be specified if required. The HONGFA HF115F-I and HF115F-S may be ordered with coil voltages over the range 5, 6, 9, 18, 24, 48, 60 and 110VDC.
All HONGFA lighting relays may supplied flux proof for use in contaminate free, clean areas or plastic sealed for use in dusty or harsh environments, are designed for PCB mounting and are RoHS compliant. HONGFA relays meet the safety requirments ot VDE, UL/CUL, TÜV, and CQC and have a life expectancy of up to 100,000 operations depending on model and load.
According to Craig Lowe, Sales Director of Transonics, “the lighting relay range from HONGFA offers cost effective high reliability automatic switching of lighting systems in a wide range of applications. HONGFA is one of the largest relay manufactures in the world with an annual production capacity of 1 billion pieces and sales of more than $700 million in 2013. Hongfa has 14 manufacturing subsidiaries, boasting a total factory area of some 330,000m² and designs and manufactures its own advanced automated manufacturing systems for relay production.”
Transonics has access to the complete range of relays manufactured by Hongfa which includes 160 different series of relay types, with some 40,000 different models, all of which are accredited by UL/CUL, VDE.
The product range is suitable for applications as diverse as signal relays for telecoms, security and fire alarms, AV equipment and instrumentation. Automotive types for power, security, anti-theft and driving information are also available as are latching relays for electricity meters, circuit protection and industrial automation. Power relays and hermetically sealed types are also available for aeronautics and space, hazardous areas and tractions systems.
