ZETTLER introduces a number of new relays at 2018 Munich electronica

Focusing on solar, e-mobility and multiple other applications, ZETTLER Group will showcase various new relays at this year’s November electronica show in Munich, Germany.
The new AZEV116 and AZEV132 series are next-generation IEC mode 2 Electric Vehicle (EV) charging relays in development for release in 2019. These relays are designed to survive high momentary currents that may occur on short circuits, thus ensuring outstanding reliability without contact welding. The AZEV116/132 series will also feature a potential monitoring contact, as required by IEC62752:2016, making these types of relays ideally suited for EV and other applications demanding high security and safety demands.
The newly developed AZSR1160 is a 160 A extreme high-power PCB Solar Relay, designed for PV applications of up to 36,8 kVA (single phase 230 VAC) / 111 kVA (three phase 400 VAC) – a highly attractive, small footprint substitute for conventional contactors. This relay is suitable for large commercial / rooftop-based PV systems and commercial solar fields.
AZSR190 is a 90 A high-power PCB relay for solar inverters. Developed for PV applications of up to 23 kVA (single phase 230 VAC) / 69 kVA (three phase 400 VAC) this relay is well suited for medium sized to larger roof top-based / commercial systems.
AZSR165 is a 65 A economy version of the new AZSR190 series. Developed for PV applications of up to 18,4 kVA (single phase 230 VAC) / 55 kVA (three phase 400 VAC) this relay is well suited for medium sized to larger roof top-based / commercial systems. ZETTLER recently also adapted this relay for a DC-side solar battery storage application, supporting a major industry player in clean home-energy solutions.
ZETTLERs AZSR131 was initially designed as a solar relay for residential and small roof top-based PV systems of up to 8 kVA (single phase 230 VAC) / 24 kVA (three phase 400 VAC). While not a new relay, ZETTLER continues to find new application extensions for this relay beyond just PV solar inverters. AZSR131 is suitable for diverse applications such as heat-pump solutions and Electro Vehicle wall box charging units and is, therefore, rapidly becoming a multi-purpose relay.
AZDC6 is a 600VDC miniature relay for RSS (Rapid Shutting Down System) for Solar installations, scheduled for 2019 release. The compact size allows for a thinner design of certain RSS boxes, that are deployed as part of compliance with 2017 NEC 690.12.

General Purpose Relay from American Zettler Features Unparalleled UL Performance Ratings

AZ576 - MINIATURE GENERAL POWER RELAYA new electromechanical relay series from American Zettler (AZ576) shows best-in-class performance ratings for applications in Appliance, Lighting, Controls and other Industries – “More power, more cycles, at higher temperatures”

November 6, 2015  “More power, more cycles, and at higher temperatures” – these are the ever increasing expectations of engineers for relay characteristics used in applications for the appliance, lighting, controls and similar industries.

With its new AZ576 relay series, American Zettler is responding to those demands and has unveiled a product that establishes a new best-in-class standard in terms of UL performance ratings in every one of these categories.

At 277 VAC, the AZ576 relay outperforms any competitive general purpose rlay with ratings of 20A for 30K cycles at 85 degrees C, or 17A for 100K cycles at 105 degrees C respectively. General purpose, pilot duty, HP, inductive, and TV loads round out the top UL ratings of this series. Coil voltages range from 3 to 110VDC, and Class F insulation (155 degrees C) is standard. Pin spacing is an industry-standard 5.0mm, and future versions will have a 3.5mm spacing option. Operate time is typically less than 8ms, and release time is typically less than 4ms. A 5kV coil-contact dielectric strength and a 10kV surge resistance mean that the AZ576 is robust enough for even highly susceptible applications.

A latching version is planned in 2016 for energy management and lighting customers.

“Despite of these peerless performance ratings we have managed to keep production cost very low through Zettler’s scale and high automation levels.” said Patrick Millet, National Sales Manager of American Zettler, Inc.
