These relays boost your sensor’s load handling ability in non-hazardous locations with the reliability and advantages inherent in solid-state controls. Solid-state reliability assures consistent performance, and with a completely encapsulated construction they are impervious to dust, moisture or foreign material. 

Types of Relays:

Electronic Solid State Relays

GEMS solid-state switching units perform the functions of electro-mechanical relays, with the added reliability and advantages inherent in solid-state. Compact, totally encapsulated, and impervious to shock or vibration, these units mount anywhere… even directly on working machinery.

Intrinsically Safe Relays

Intrinsically safe equipment and wiring is equipment and wiring which is incapable of releasing sufficient electrical or thermal energy under normal or abnormal conditions to cause ignition of a specific hazardous atmospheric mixture in its most ignited concentration. Intrinsically safe terminations and wiring may be brought into any hazardous location of any Group classification for which it is accepted without requiring explosion-proof housing or other means of protection.

To be certified “intrinsically safe,” a device or circuit must be so designed that no two simultaneous failures can cause an explosion. Intrinsically safe systems are more dependable. The I.S. circuit must function reliably per specifications, with no explosions, during and after cycling through a number of operations.

The units can also be installed more conveniently. Since no explosion is possible, no explosion-proof conduit or enclosures of any kind are needed in the hazardous area. Maintenance can be performed immediately as needed. And, intrinsically safe systems are more economical. Costly enclosures with their mounting requirements are unnecessary. No purging is required, thereby eliminating blowers, pressure switches, timers and relays.
