Palatine, IL— Schneider Electric recently released its Telemecanique Zelio logic relay, which it reports is an innovative, cost-effective, smart relay with advanced programmable relay functionality for small control system applications. Zelio Logic is designed for applications that require greater flexibility than a simple relay, but are too small or simple to require using even the smallest nano PLC.

Zelio’s small size and ease of programming provides a competitive alternative to traditional relays, timers and counters. Modbus communications capability makes it easy to integrate into automation systems, and a modem enables remote control of applications. Able to accept and control outputs just like a relay, logic on the Zelio relay is simple to set up by either programming the front of the module or by using ZelioSoft software. It also features dual language capability, using either function block diagram or ladder logic programming.

Compared to hardwired logic solutions, Zelio reportedly can save up to 70% in wiring and installation costs and time. Mounting is simplified with either DIN-rail or panel-mounting.

Zelio logic relays are available with four or eight outputs, and accept a wide range of input voltages. AC versions are available with input voltages of 120 or 240 V ac, and dc versions are available with input voltages of 24 V dc.
