OMRON have released the compact, efficient G9KA PCB power relay rated at 800V / 200A, the relay was initially designed for power conditioners (PCS) associated with renewable micro power generation, as well as inverters and UPS systems but is also suitable for use in many other applications where demanding loads need to be handled.
OMRON identified that heat generation has become a major issue for customers in high power applications as density of components increases, their design team have innovated in terms of the structure of the G9KA relays, the materials used and the manufacturing quality to achieve an exceptionally low contact resistance, facilitating the customer’s thermal design and reducing design cost.
High power applications demand high energy efficiency as well as low heat generation, the OMRON G9KA is an ideal relay solution because it benefits from an exceptionally low contact resistance for this class of relay at just 0.2mΩ, this helps reduce the heat generated in the relay by over 30% compared with current equivalent devices on the market. The G9KA provides ultra-low initial and end of life contact resistance resulting in low heat dissipation, this helps to minimize heat stress at PCB level, extending operational life of end products. Furthermore this also reduces the need for thermal management components such as heat sinks or fans reducing overall system complexity and cost whilst at the same time improving reliability by reducing heating of the surrounding components.
Not only have OMRON developed a high power, high energy efficient relay with low heat generation, they have also managed to package it in a housing measuring just 50mm x 50mm x 50mm, yes you did read that correctly, the G9KA boasts a 30% smaller footprint and lower height than an equivalent rated contactor.
The G9KA relay has PCB terminals and is rated for use at temperatures from -40°C up to 85°C, it has a SPST-NO (1a) contact arrangement constructed from an Ag Alloy material with a rated carry current of 200A, max. switching current of 200A and max. switching voltage of 800VAC. The relay is available with a choice of 12V and 24V coils with resistance and rated currents of 28.8Ω/417mA and 115.2Ω/208mA respectively. The relay is also UL Recognized, and EN/IEC TUV, UL and CQC Certificated.

OMRON's range of Push-In Terminal Block PCB Connectors, the XW4M (Plug) and XW4N (Socket) series, are ideal for applications that require fast, efficient and repeatable assembly with ease of inspection and with reliable performance
The OMRON W7BB-X01 transparent button, designated the "bash button" due to the way it is designed for use, is a robust mechanical button.
OMRON have expanded their range of T-modules to support accurate measurements in all types of test equipment.
The OMRON EE-SY1201 is an exceptionally compact reflective Photomicrosensor (PMS) with a sensing distance of 3-4mm. A Photomicrosensor, also known as a photointerrupter, is a compact optical sensor that senses objects or object positions.
The B5W Series of optical sensors from OMRON has been expanded with the addition of the B5W-DB sensor. Having a longer sensing distance of 550mm - longer than light convergent resistance sensors of the same size
OMRON has launched PWM coil controlled versions of three of its most popular power relays, all three relays offer coil power levels 75-90% lower than comparable standard DC coil versions and support pulse width modulation (PWM) of the coil holding current
