Picker Components Announces High Amperage Relay

June 12, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
June 12, 2015 - Picker Components, a quality leader in design and manufacturing of electro-mechanical and solid state relays, today announced the release of its 50 Amp T90 Power PCB Relay. Known as the PTRE, the 50 Amp Power Relay is ideal for a broad range of applications where high current PCB performance is required in applications like motor, blower and heating controls. Picker Components' customers demand strict performance characteristics and Picker meets the challenge through its advanced design and automated manufacturing processes. All Picker relays must pass stringent controls for superior materials and design excellence in order to achieve lower internal resistance, less heat and higher reliability.

Jim Kasle, General Manager for Picker Components, comments, "Our PTRE 50-Amp PCB Relay packs a lot of punch in a small package. We added a braided copper wire to carry the current along the armature from the common pin to the common contact. This effectively dissipates heat away from the contacts, which improves reliability."

The PTRE with a 50 Amp 240VAC UL Resistive Rating is optimal for high current applications. The PTRE design utilizes larger contacts and better heat dissipation to meet or exceed demanding OEM product performance requirements.

The PTRE offers the following key features:
  • Popular T90 Power PCB Relay Footprint
  • UL 50-Amp Continuous Current @ 240VAC, 30VCD
  • 2 Horsepower at 250VAC Rating
  • UL Class F Insulation Standard
  • Available with UL508 and UL873 Spacing
  • Epoxy Sealed, Immersion Cleanable, Ventable
  • 55°C to +125°C Operating Temperature
  • Lead Free and RoHS Compliant
