World‘s Smallest 16A Relay

Being the smallest 16A polarized power relay in the market, DE series devices enable miniaturization in any application. Especially in smart outlets up to 3.6kW, for example, that need a minimum 8mm creepage and clearance distance, DE relays are the perfect solution. In addition, the polarized coil system and especially the latching versions (1 or 2 coils) helps to increase the power efficiency of your application: the DE relay consumes no power during On or Off states, just during the short switching period. To cover applications that can not allow latching relays, the DE relay is available as a monostable version with very low power consumption to keep losses low.
