G7L-PV Power Relay

Two-pole Power Relay That Is Ideal for Inverters in Photovoltaic Power Systems

  • High switching capacity with contact rating of 30 A at 280 VAC (AC7a class).
  • Power consumption reduced by lowering coil voltage after relay operation (low power consumption of approx. 320 mW at 37.5% reduced coil voltage).
  • Ambient operating temperature of up to 85°C.
  • Contact gap of 3.0 mm for safety.
  • UL and VDE class F certification for coil insulation.

Correct Use


• Install the Relays in locations that are as dry as possible and have as little dust, dirt, and harmful gas as possible.

• Using the a Relay under high temperature, high humidity, or harmful gas may deteriorate its performance characteristics due to condensation or corrosive materials, resulting in failure or burn damage to the Relay.

• The Relay weight approx. 100 g. Be sure that the PCB is strong enough to support it. We recommend dual-side through-hole PCBs to reduce solder cracking from heat stress.

• Install the Relay so that the surface with the markings faces up. (The coil terminals will be at the top and the contact terminals will be at the bottom.)

●Micro Loads

• The G7L-PV is a Power Relay that is suitable for grid connection switching applications for inverters in photovoltaic power systems. Do not use the G7L-PV to switch minute loads, such as signals.

●Soldering PCB Terminals

• Do not perform automatic soldering. Always solder the terminals manually.

• Solder with the following conditions: Soldering iron temperature (max.) 380°C, Soldering time within 10 seconds.

• The G7L-PV is not sealed. Do not wash the G7L-PV with water or detergent.

●Coil Voltage Reduction (Holding Voltage) after Relay Operation

• If the coil voltage is reduced to the holding voltage after Relay operation, first apply the rated voltage to the coil for at least 100 ms.

• A voltage of at least 37.5% of the rated voltage is required for the coil holding voltage. Do not allow voltage fluctuations to cause the coil holding voltage to fall below this level.

• If you use the Relay at the holding voltage, install a diode in parallel with the coil. The G7L-PV has no coil polarity. Connect the diode so that the polarity is the opposite of the applied coil voltage.


●PCB Mounting Interval (at Rated Coil Voltage)

• If you mount more than one G7L-PV, maintain the mounting intervals that are given in the following figures.

• If the Relays are used with the coil voltage at the holding voltage (37.5%) at an ambient temperature of 85°C, side-byside mounting (0 mm) is possible.
