  2. 02.06.2023 - Relays for PCB mounting from Finder

    Finder GmbH is one of the leading companies in the development, production and sale of electromechanical relays, timing, measuring and monitoring relays as well as installation devices for building installation.

    So-called print relays are used for many smaller applications where the control system requires only a small amount of space.

    They are designed for direct installation on a printed circuit board. The advantage: mounting and electrical connection take place simultaneously.
    Instead of permanently soldering PCB relays, plug connections are also possible - for example with the Faston connectors commonly used in automotive electronics.

    The switching of electrical drives is generally a typical relay application. Depending on the type of drive, very high currents flow during start-up and must be switched safely. Finder's Series 45 relays are ideal for this: They are available with a normally open or normally closed contact and can be loaded with a maximum continuous current of 16 A at 250 V AC. During the switching process, currents of up to 30 A at up to 400 V are possible. The relays ensure a safe separation between coil and contact set.

    In most cases, however, the space for the control technology is limited. If, for example, the complete automation technology has to be accommodated in a small housing, the printed circuit board should also have a correspondingly compact design. The 34 series PCB relays, which are only 5 mm wide, are suitable for this purpose. This allows printed circuit boards with a high packing and function density to be implemented.

    Relays from Finder can be used in applications all over the world: Where the relays are to be integrated directly on the PCB, the relay specialist offers a wide range of products. The PCB relays of the various types not only meet the standards for the European (IEC) and North American markets (UL), but also have many other country-specific approvals such as IMQ for Italy or EAC for the Eurasian economic area (Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan).

    Finder relies on a very high product range depth, which now amounts to more than 12,500 different product versions - all products are Made in Europe.

  3. 08.10.2021 - New in the range: Miniature PCB relay with AC coil

    The Type 40.62 with AC coil is the latest addition to Finder's relay range for industrial, residential and commercial applications. Finder's leading line of miniature PCB/plug-in relays now includes a 2 CO 10 A version with AC coil. Just like the DC coil version that has been available for some time, it is only 12.4 mm wide.

    The new relay is suitable for a wide range of applications, from industrial automation to the control of electric blinds and curtains in residential applications. It has already received a number of international safety approvals, allowing it to be used in major markets such as Germany, Italy, USA, China, Canada and Russia.

    The miniature PCB/plug-in relay type 40.62 meets the glow wire test according to CEI EN 60335-1, so it can be used without hesitation, especially in electrical devices in residential applications.

  4. 19.03.2021 - Always better: The new 46 series industrial relays from Finder

    With the new 46 Series Industrial Miniature Relays, Finder introduces improvements to its proven product line.
     
    With a newly placed LED and an optimized status display, the relays meet current requirements for function monitoring and ease of maintenance.
     
    In addition, Finder has been able to improve the electrical characteristics in many areas, thus optimizing the series for use in industrial environments. For example, the max. continuous current for AC 15 has been increased from 3 A to 4 A. The switching capacity here is 250 V/920 VA (previously 750 VA).
     
    A significant increase in reliability has been achieved with an electrical life of now 100,000 switching cycles (previously 30,000) at 277 VAC or 24 VDC and 16 A.
     
    An automatic production as well as the listing according to UL distinguish the high demand for quality in the field of application of this relay series.
     
    An overview of the available variants and further technical information is available in our online store.
