Panasonic Industry Europe introduces world’s smallest 2pole safety relay with power contacts on NO and NC side

13 JANUARY 2020

SFM relay series offers forcibly guided contacts according to EN61810-3

More than 30 years ago, Panasonic changed the way how to design safety modules by bringing a low profile 8pole safety relay on the market. Now the launch of the new 1a1b SFM relay will start the next phase of the market revolution. With a height of only 7.8mm and reflow soldering capability, SFM provides great design possibilities and is ready for future production processes.

As all Panasonic Industry safety relays, SFM offers power contacts on both NO (6A) and NC (4A) side to control loads like valves directly without another relay in between. Contrarywise, the silver alloy contacts can handle low level loads down to 10V 1mA as well to support e.g. signaling boards in the railway sector. A very high shock and vibration resistance ≥ 20g, low coil holding power of 100mW, an ambient temperature
range from -40°C to 85°C and reinforced insulation ≥ 5.5mm (V=230V overvoltage category III, 6KV) on NO side contribute to an almost unlimited field of applications.
