OptoNews: New SNAP mechanical relay output has integrated transient suppression

Posted by Jean Femia on Nov 18, 2015, 5:27:11 PM

The new SNAP-OMR6T-C mechanical power relay output module offers four points to switch loads up to 6 amps at 250 VAC or 30 VDC.

AND it includes integrated transient suppression, while maintaining minimal leakage current. 

  • Each isolated point can carry 6 amps, no matter how many of the four points are on. 
  • Each point can be wired as normally open or normally closed.
  • Each point can switch either AC or DC. 

We developed these mechanical power relay output modules in a SNAP form factor to dramatically reduce the possibility of leakage current causing a load to stick ON. Leakage current for the module is less than 1 microamp.

For most applications—including those with long wire runsthis new model is the recommended choice over the similar, older SNAP-OMR6-C, which does not have integrated transient suppression. 

You can use the SNAP-OMRT-C with all SNAP PAC brains and rack-mounted controllers. The module also works with legacy brains like SNAP Ultimate and SNAP Ethernet, and you can even use it with serial B3000 and B3000-B brains.
