High-voltage relay beefs up performance, reduces size

GIGAVAC said its new G9 sealed single pole, double throw (SPDT) 15kV, 75-amp vacuum relay solves size, weight and cost issues for 30 to 75-amp applications. The G9 relay also touts years of failure-free operation with tungsten contacts sealed in a vacuum which locks out external contamination. Plus, it can hot switch lower current loads.
