Teledyne Relays Announces Magnetic-Latching, Half-Size Crystal Can Relay for Military, Aerospace Applications

HAWTHORNE, Calif. (October 11, 2005) - Teledyne Relays introduced yet another switching solution for military, aerospace and space applications - the Series J255 magnetic-latching, half-size crystal can relay.

The dual-pole, dual-throw (DPDT) relay switches up to 2 amps at 28 Vdc and offers a 0.2dB insertion loss @1GHz. It is the company's smallest electromechanical package capable of switching high power

The J255 relay helps users consume less power by offering pulse operation on the coil. Relays typically require continuous coil power to remain in the last energized position, but the latching feature only requires the coil to receive a pulse to switch and remain in that position. The environmentally rugged design and latching feature makes the relay a good candidate for space applications, according to Antonio Gallegos, product-marketing engineer.

The hermetically sealed relay is qualified to MIL-PRF-39016/45. The magnetic latching mechanism makes the J255 less susceptible to transfer and/or chatter in high shock and high-vibration applications.

A commercial version, the Series 255, is also available. The 255 relay may also be used for RF applications up to 3GHz.

The industry-standard package of the J255 and 255 saves space because of its reduced height. Its canister measures 0.81 x 0.425 x 0.41 inches (20.57 x 10.8 x 10.41 mm). The relay weighs 0.46 ounces (13 grams).

The J255 and 255 relays are manufactured using a modernized assembly process at the company's facilities in Hawthorne, California. Unique construction features and manufacturing techniques provide overall high reliability and excellent resistance to environmental extremes, including temperatures ranging from -65C to +125C. The model with gold-plated wire leads is RoHS compliant.

The relays are priced from $148.54 for the J255 and $133.66 for the 255 in quantities from 500 units. Lead time for delivery is stock up to 12 weeks.
