FINDER is an international system partner for components with the motto: Switch. Control. Measure.

Finder is one of the leaders in the development, fabrication and sales of electromechanical relays, time, measurement and monitoring relays and installation equipment for building systems. With headquarters in Northern Italy, 25 subsidiaries in Europe, America and Asia and 80 representation offices worldwide, Finder is close to the customer on an international level.

The company was founded in 1954 near Turin and has been managed since then by the founder's family. Fabrication "Made in Europe" is handled at four plants in Italy, France and Spain. The German subsidiary in Trebur-Astheim is responsible for the marketing of products in Central and Eastern Europe.

  1. 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.

  2. 24.07.2020 - 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. 04.12.2018 - New relays from Finder

    Finder extends its portfolio of relays with forcibly guided contacts with the type 50.14 with four contacts. The relay type 50.14 is available either with two normally open contacts and two normally closed contacts or with three normally open contacts and one normally closed contact.

    The type 50.16 has either four normally open contacts and two normally closed contacts or five normally open contacts and one normally closed contact. All contacts can be loaded with 8 A each. The coil rated DC voltage is 12 V, 24 V, 48 V or 110 V.

    Both types are designed as PCB relays for mounting on a printed circuit board and have a low design. Typical applications for the two safety relays are machine tools, elevator controls, railway controls and safety barriers.

    Our sales team will be pleased to assist you in selecting the right component for you.
