Basic electronic monitoring relays save space, simplify set-up


New EMD-BL from Phoenix Contact comes in smaller package and is available with push-in technology

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – Phoenix Contact now offers compact monitoring relays for single-function monitoring, making simple monitoring applications more affordable. The new EMD-BL (basic line) monitoring relays are available with optional push-in technology for easier installation.

The EMD-BL is available for single-phase current monitoring, single-phase voltage monitoring, three-phase voltage monitoring and phase monitoring. Unlike the existing EMD-FL and EMD-SL relays, each BL relay provides only a single function, so installers do not have to pay extra for features they don’t need. The BL relays have a 17.55-mm-wide housing, compared with 22.5-mm in the multi-function devices, saving valuable cabinet space.
