TURCK Inc., represented in Australia by Micromax Pty Ltd , has launched the new C12 interfacer relay featured in the new "RELECO by TURCK" catalogue.
The 2-pole changeover contact relay is used for linking PC or PLC logic to machine operation.
C12 interfacer relays offer numerous advantages over conventional block, modular terminal strip or socket I/O products that require hours of wiring and potential downtime if a relay fails or needs to be replaced.
The C12 interfacer provides a modular solution with a universal socket to allow both input and output relays with various voltages to be positioned on a DIN rail and replaced individually as needed.
The relays also feature a built-in surge suppressor that eliminates the need to specify separate relays for ac and dc applications.
C12 interfacer relays are industrial grade plug-in relays with rugged blade terminals that won't easily bend or break and feature push-to-test and pull-to-lock latches for trouble-free testing.
Further, the relay's face label includes its electrical configuration, voltage range and wiring diagram to facilitate maintenance ease and efficient control systems.
The relay also features a dual status indicator that contains both an LED pilot light and a mechanical flag to indicate output at a glance.
In addition to the C12 interfacer relay, the "RELECO by TURCK" catalogue features new CSS relays used for either ac or dc inductive and resistive load switching.
The durable CSS-dc relays are ideal when switching up to 50Vdc in heating elements, motors, solenoids or input/output signals on PLCs.
CSS-ac relays were designed for use in switching resistors, incandescent lamps and signalling applications.
