Weidmuller offers a new innovative, truly universal, pluggable electromechanical and solid-state relays equipped with one- and two-changeover contacts. TermSeries "The All-rounder" is a slim 6.4 or 12.8 mm design with matching profiles that can combined or cross connected as needed.

The unique universal voltage input relay is perfect for retro-fitting machines or in plant design. With the multi-voltage input from 24V to 230 Vac/Vdc, the guess work is eliminated regarding which relay is required. The input signals are always optimally matched to the application with only one module. This multi-voltage input solution reduces the amount of spares necessary, simplifies installation and increases machine up time. Seamlessly switch between electromechanical and solid-state plug-ins without the need to change wiring in the DIN-rail mounted base. These relays are capable of switching loads of up to 8 A (resistive) at 250 V.

Weidmuller’s TermSeries relay and solid-state relays feature one- and two-changeover relays, screw terminals and tension clamp modules with cross connections on five levels. These can be used on a variety of modules and across isolation plates with the easy-to-use jumpers reducing wiring time and cost. A distinctive status display with a LED that completely illuminates the ejector makes for quick and easy status identification and troubleshooting.

TermSeries relays are installer friendly and reduce the risk of incorrect wiring with the help of color-coded markings designed to be legible in different mounting positions. Colors are marked on the top of the module with blue for dc coils, red for ac coils and white for ac/dc coils.

A wide operating temperature range from – 40 to 60 C (-40 to 140 F) and international approvals, including cULus Listed, CE and GL, make Weidmuller’s large variety of TERMSERIES electromechanical and solid-state relays ideal for a broad range of applications worldwide.;jsessionid=14A034DEEE576B1E5755D4CC979D5B9A?groupId=(%22group4580640122605%22)&page=Group
