General Purpose Relays
General Purpose relays are the origin of the Omron relays, and they meet various needs with a wide variety.
They also are used in a variety of control components at production sites where high reliability is required and in control systems such as electricity, water, and gas.
|For control panels||Relays with 1 to 4 poles are mainly used for relay sequences or I/O applications||MM(K), MK(S), MY, LY, G2R, G2RV, G7T, etc.|
|Built-in||Built-in relays enable using a carry current of up to 40 A and are used for building into devices, e.g., to turn ON load power supplies.||G7Z, G7J, G7X, etc.|
|For work saving||Work-saving relays are available in relay units and are used mainly for I/O applications for programmable controllers when downsizing and saving work are required.||G6D-F4B, G6B-4BND, etc.|
|For special operations||Relays for special operations are available as relays or relay units that are specified for a specific applications, such as alternative operation and stepping operation of pumps.||G4Q, G9B, MYA, etc.|
Transparent cases are used for most of these relays so that users can see inside of the relays.
In addition, indicators and mechanical latching levers contribute to a reduction of man-hours for checking operation and inspections.
General purpose relays are mainly used as a control circuit (relay sequence) for control circuits of automated machines used at various production sites, and for various control systems such as lighting, air conditioning, and water treatment of buildings. Omron has a wide variety of relays in accordance with the use environment and the purpose. (Mini-power relays, latching relays, etc.)
