Auxiliary relays for operation and switching in areas with high safety demands

Auxiliary relays with base module

Auxiliary relays for operation and switching in areas with high safety demands

The auxiliary relays are ideal for use in control and monitoring systems. They ensure electrical isolation between auxiliary and control circuits. The auxiliary relays also consume very little power – despite their high switching capacity. This makes them ideal for use in substations, for example.

The axial armature relay actuates all contacts at the same time, without intermediate switching via levers. The plug-in auxiliary relays are quickly and safely mounted on the corresponding base module.

Your advantages with our auxiliary relays

  • Reliable and durable operation with a high switching capacity
  • Space-saving installation with the compact design
  • Easy commissioning with pre-assembled connectors
