The new PSR Mini relays from Phoenix Contact are the world’s slimmest safety relays with the power of a large safety relay. With their compact 6-mm width, they ensure high safety thanks to positively driven contacts.
Phoenix Contact’s new relay technology makes this compact design possible. The design is based on a slim but powerful basic relay characterized by minimal space requirements, low energy consumption, and high system availability.
The safety relays can switch loads up to 6 amperes, are compatible with many signal transducers, and can be used in many different applications thanks to extensive approvals. This makes the new products especially suitable for mechanical engineering and process industry applications.
These slim modules require up to 70 percent less space. As only a single enabling contact is needed, applications can be built with new and improved cost-effectiveness. Safety relays can also be used to build distributed systems in potentially explosive areas. The terminal carriers also enable the use of system cabling solutions for a fast and correct start-up and field connection.
The complete PSR Mini range of safety relays consists of 6-mm and 12-mm models.
