Low-profile latching-type DW-HL relay from Panasonic.An attractively priced powerful low-profile relay.

With the new DW-HL relay, Panasonic launches a new power relay as a low-profile version of the tried-and-tested 16A latching type DW-H relay. Thanks to the reduced height the relay is perfectly suited for building automation and the new IoT market (Internet of Things) with applications such as smart switches, smart sockets, or in-wall applications. The DW-HL relay is the perfect actuator for reliable switching of loads in bus systems as the KNX bus, LED and halogen lighting systems, shutter motors, solenoid valves, and other electrical equipment.

The new DW-HL relay reliably switches 25,000 times inrush currents of 117A at 240V AC according to TV-8 rating and rated switching capacities of 16A/277V AC. The relay hence complements Panasonic's existing portfolio of latching type power relays.

Its compact design (24mm x 10mm x 15.8mm (LxWxH)) and low coil power dissipation of 200mW for the 1 coil latching type or 400mW for the 2 coil latching type make this relay extremely attractive for many applications. It is optimally suited for battery-driven or KNX applications as well as PDUs (power distribution units).

Advantageous when designing in are the relay's 6mm creepage and clearance distance between contact and coil and its impressive breakdown voltage of 6kV between contact and coil. The surge withstand voltage here is a remarkable 12kV.

Of course, the DW-HL is UL/C-UL and VDE approved.

Samples of the DW-HL relay are available upon request.
