DW series relay: small footprint; maximum possible switching capacity

16A latching relay; excellent characteristics; conforms to EN 60335; pin-in-paste versions available.

Reflow-compatible 16A relay

DW series devices are  ≤16A latching relays that features three basic types. The standard type with a height of 18.8mm provides pin-in-paste reflow compability and a switching capability of 8A 250VAC. For applications that require high inrush current up to 100A and switching capability of 16A 277VAC, the DW-HL version is the best choice. In addition it offers a lower height of only 15.8mm. Both versions are available as IEC60335-1*-compliant types for household and similar electrical appliances.
