The RV8S solid-state interface relay boasts a compact 6-mm footprint, and features high switching cycles, extended operating life and high-speed load switching. 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 that are much faster than electromechanical relays. 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. The RV8S can safely operate in temperatures from –20 to 60ºC and humidity from 5 to 85%. — IDEC Corp., Osaka, Japan
