Next generation relays from Tyco Electronics feature new innovative design

The new RZ series of General Purpose Relays from Tyco Electronics has been developed from Tyco Electronics' classic RT relay, which defined the global market for this type of relay.

Ideal for modern applications like household appliances, building automation (e.g. garage door controls), heating (e.g. boiler controls), timers, industrial controllers, and POS automation, next generation RZ series relays offer one pole with 12A or 16A current rating and one CO or one NO contact. The devices benefit from an innovative new design with a rated voltage of 250VAC, 400mW coil power and reinforced insulation.


Standard RZ series relays feature an ambient temperature of 85degC, with the HOT version being designed for a maximum ambient temperature of 105degC. The devices are all VDE and UL approved, fully RoHS compliant and meet appliance industry requirements of IEC60335-1.

RZ series general purpose relays are being manufactured at Tyco Electronics' fully automated manufacturing line in Waidhofen/Austria.
