LEACH International, represented in Australia by Aerospace & Defence Products , has released the KX and KUL small, lightweight relay series. They are designed to carry high-current loads up to 300A.
The KX series offers a one cubic inch can and is capable of switching 75A and carrying 160A. It is designed for aircraft, space, rail and high-reliability applications. The small size allows users to put several relays in a small area, while the lightweight design facilitates the creation of small-scale assemblies.
It also offers a single-pole, double-break configuration and a temperature range of -55°C to 125°C. For longer life and greater reliability, the relays are hermetically sealed. All relays are designed to Mil-PRF-6106 standards. The KX relay series offers various options to ensure the greatest compatibility. The KXL-X9N model has a magnetic latch configuration, while the offers an auxiliary switch.
The KUL Relay series is a slightly larger version, designed to carry up to 300A in low-voltage space applications. A single-pole, double-throw auxiliary contact is standard on the relay. The design minimises the voltage drop across the terminals to keep the relay cool while carrying high current. The relay weighs 50g, making it suited to space-borne applications. The KUL is hermetically sealed and designed to Mil-PRF-6106 standards.
