RPYS, ZPYS: SLIM RELAY AND SOCKET SERIES WITH SCREW AND PUSH-IN TERMINALS

Easy wiring and space optimization for electrical panels.

Lainate, October 2020 - Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in the design, manufacture and marketing of electronic equipment, today presents its new series of slim relays and sockets.

The RPYS is a compact electro-mechanical relay for electrical panels where the space is limited. With more and more integrated functionalities in industrial applications, an ever-increasing number of IOs need to be switched ON and OFF. With its compact 13 mm wide footprint, the RPYS helps customers save more than 30% of space compared with the standard RPY relay.

To make this series even more effective, the new matching ZPYS socket is available in both screw and push-in terminals versions for easier wiring and vibration resistant connections.

For additional ease of wiring, multiple sockets can also be interconnected by means of busbars.

“Electrical panels are becoming increasingly populated with electrical components to provide more functionality. Our customers are demanding more performance in a smaller footprint and we can meet these market requirements with this new series of slim relays and sockets. Together with the previously launched RSLM series, we are now enhancing our slim relay product range,” Matteo Pinciroli International Product Specialist says. “With this launch it is our intention to further strengthen Carlo Gavazzi’s market position by increasing our product portfolio with electromechanical relays and sockets, mainly targeted at applications with limited space in cabinets and making it more attractive to our sales network.”

This series is specifically designed to meet requirements in the Industrial and Building automation markets, such as Agriculture, Automatic Doors and Access Controls, Energy, HVAC systems, Lifts and Escalators, Plastics, Packaging and Mining machinery.

Main technical features
• 1 and 2 SPDT change over contacts, 10 A and 5 A
• Nominal voltage range 12 VDC, 24 VDC and 24 VAC, 115 VAC, 230 VAC
• Basic and Test button + LED version
• The version with a Test button identifies coils through the Test button colour
(AC red/DC blue)
• Screw terminal and Push-in sockets
• CE, cURus approved

RG SOLID STATE RELAYS CONFORMING TO RAILWAY STANDARDS

Extended features of the 1-phase and 3-phase RG slim line series to cover railway application requirements.

Lainate, August 2020 - Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in the design, manufacture and marketing of electronic equipment, today presents an update to the popular RG series with the additional compliance to European railway standards.

Enhanced reliability and a long lifetime have made the solid state relays the preferred switching component in a number of applications. Due to their characteristics, for many years, solid state relays have dominated in industrial automation applications as well as commercial equipment. Their ability to be less immune to vibrations and shocks also makes them the ideal switching component in transportation applications.

Solid state relays conformity requirements are dictated by standards related to the industrial control equipment and, in most cases, do not cover additional requirements related to the specific end application. With this update, the RG series has been subjected to additional testing to ensure its compliance to the standards of the transportation market, mainly in railway applications.

The RG 1-phase and 3-phase series, in addition to the industrial standard conformity, now also comply with the applicable railway standards: EN 50155, EN 45545-2 and EN 50121-3-2.

“The standards governing railways have some additional requirements that are not covered by the industrial control equipment standards and in most cases our customers have to additionally consider these requirements at their end” Dorianne Grech International Product Manager says. “With this further available conformity on the RG series, the users in the transportation sector will be relieved from the need to do extra testing on the solid state relays ”.

Developed in our competence centre in Malta, the RG series is designed to fit in multiple applications, both for heater control and also motor applications. This recent update makes the RG the ideal solution for heating applications on railways.

Main technical features
1-phase RGC1, RGS1 series
• Ratings up to 660 VAC, 90 AAC
• Available with or without heatsink
• DC or AC control
• Control ON LED indication
• Integrated over-voltage protection on output

3-phase RGC2, RGC3 series
• Ratings up to 660 VAC, 65 AAC (3-pole switching)
• Ratings up to 660 VAC, 75 AAC (2-pole switching)
• DC or AC control – DC control variants only conform to Railway standards
• Control ON LED indication
• Integrated over-voltage protection on output
