IDEC's RV8S solid state interface relays are suitable for DIN-rail mounting and support flexible wire termination options including screw terminal and spring clamp models. Courtesy: IDECIDEC's RV8S solid state interface relays are suitable for DIN-rail mounting, and have UL/c-UL and CE ratings as well as IP20 protection, which allow them to safely operate in temperatures from -20 to 60 C and in humidity from 5% to 85%. The RV8S supports flexible wire termination options including screw terminal and spring clamp models. The RV8S features 100mA to 3A switching capability in a compact 6mm wide space. Other features include high switching cycles, extended operating life, and high-speed load switching. It can also be used as an interface device between a PLC or other controller outputs and a load with high power requirements.

The RV8S can switch loads up to 240 VAC, and it has passed 100,000 cycles of UL Extended Endurance testing. Common uses of the RV8S include general load switching in control systems for assembly machines, solenoids, molding machines, and other applications requiring a high repetition rate. The RV8S has operate and release times which are much faster than electromechanical relays. Depending on the specific model, the operate time is as fast as 40┬Ásec with a 200uS release time. The relay also generates no acoustic and far less electrical noise than its electromechanical counterpart because it makes use of semiconductor outputs instead of electrically sparking contacts.
